The six 2008 L.E.O. Awards recipients include:
- Joseph Cartagena, owner, Genacelli Salon & Spa, Chicago, IL and vice president, Cosmetologists Chicago, the association of salon professionals who own & operate America's Beauty Show;
- Mary Beth Janssen, owner, The Janssen Source, Palatine, IL, an authority on the beauty and wellness connection and author of four books;

- Christine Schuster, senior vice president of education, Redken Fifth Avenue NYC/PureOlogy, New York, NY;
- Andre Walker, exclusive hairstylist to Oprah Winfrey for 24 years, Chicago, IL.

"With the L.E.O. award we honor the achievements of all the beauty professionals our founder Leo Passage and Pivot Point have trained, influenced and inspired over 45 years," announced CEO Karen Wilkin-Donachie.

"Our alumni," Wilkin-Donachie added, "could easily number in the millions as Pivot Point beauty education is currently available in 73 countries and 11 languages worldwide.

More than 50,000 cosmetologists graduate with a Pivot Point-based education every year."
