It is with great sadness that the Sam Villa Company mourns the sudden passing and loss of one of their beloved and valued employees, Jimmy Smith. Smith was Manager of Customer Advocacy and joined the company in 2012. In his role, Smith touched thousands of customers who contacted the company’s help desk. He made a connection with every hairstylist he came into contact with, and always with a personal touch, because he simply cared about their concerns and their life behind the chair. His positive attitude and big heart were a daily inspiration to those he worked with.
“Jimmy’s passing reminds us why we named our corporation ‘Allvus’,” says Sam Villa, founding partner of the Sam Villa® brand, Education Artistic Director for Redken 5th Avenue. “ We wanted to build a company around a group of people who are passionate about the industry and compassionate to those we serve. Jimmy embodied these traits and everything that our organization is about. He will be missed dearly and remembered always for his love of life, his sense of humor and the connection he made with everyone he met.”
Thoughts are with Smith’s family and the many friends that he made throughout his life.
Remembrances can be posted to the Sam Villa Professional Facebook page, which will also be forwarded to his family.
