Yvonne Von Berg
Founder & Chief Executive Officer
Yvonne Von Berg and Chaz Hatfield started RETRO CO because they saw how powerful innovation could be for creating an incredible opportunity for entrepreneurs. As global leaders in the development and manufacture of FDA Cleared at-home devices and high-quality personal care products, they knew their passion for leading-edge products would set them apart and empower Consultants to live beautifully in every sense. Yvonne is thrilled that everyone is falling in love with the proven quality of the personal care products as they turn back the ravages of time thanks to the technology of tomorrow. More than that, she’s proud to be leading a rapidly growing community of entrepreneurs that is quickly becoming a family.

VP of Consultant Central and Career & Guideline Support
Christine Read’s number one goal and desire is, and always will be, to help others learn and discover endless possibilities within themselves. This desire has played out over the years in her different roles as a proud military spouse, mom to three beautiful children, and now “CiCi” to a beautiful grandson. During the past 18 years this goal has also been an important focus while working with and mentoring some of the best teams, at some of the fastest growing companies in the direct selling industry. Her leadership philosophy is all about empowering others to look beyond what they see and to listen and discover what they can do to help others be successful. In her current role with RETRO CO, Christine has the distinct opportunity to lead and teach a new team how to equip others to unlock their futures and reach their goals. For her, the ultimate success will be seeing Consultants prosper today, tomorrow and well into the future. As a self-described military brat and spouse, her family has lived in many parts of this amazing country. While she has a home and family in Ohio, and family in Pennsylvania, she now considers sunny Florida and her RETRO CO family her home-away-from-home.

Director of People Operations
Working as an advocate for others has just come naturally for Debbi Hatfield. Born in northern Ohio, Debbi earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree, majoring in Social Work, from Bowling Green State University, which steered her into the workforce of healthcare. Family has always been a priority and she was blessed to work in her family’s hometown healthcare business. This experience allowed her to develop her leadership skills as she spent over 20 years’ in top roles within healthcare and administration. Holding a license in Social Work and Nursing Home Administration in Ohio, prior to relocating to Florida, was instrumental in the startup of several successful family businesses. Now, she continues to share her leadership skills in People Operations and Talent at RETRO CO. Debbi sees this as a continuation of her advocacy role and she surrounds herself with people who are full of laughter and excitement. Relocating from Ohio was not only for the sun, but a gift to bring her closer to her children and enjoy the addition of grandchildren. She has the good fortune of serving RETRO CO where she is once again blessed to work closely with her family. Spending time with her children and watching her grandchildren grow has made Fort Myers, Florida, her home. She truly believes that there is no bad day when you can spend it with family, sun and at the beach!
