ACKER Stanley, born February 7, 1930 in New York City, son of Charles and Francis Acker, passed away at the age of 78 on March 6, 2008. Stanley, a successful self-made entrepreneur, was notably one of the most important pioneers in the Mass Market cosmetics industry and the founder, CEO and President of Pavion Ltd.. His company manufactured Wet-n-Wild cosmetics as well as a number of other brands marketed worldwide, selling hundreds of millions of lipsticks, nail polishes and other cosmetic products each year. Stanley not only had remarkable business acumen, marketing know-how and entrepreneurial spirit, he was a real people person with a heart of gold, a very warm, caring and loveable soul, and had a dynamic sense of fun and humor. An avid fisherman, he loved to dance, travel and spend time with his family. Stanley will be a lingering memory in the hearts of his family, friends and business associates for many years to come.
