Robertson, Rozanne

​Rozanne (Posy) Robertson earned a business administration degree from Northwestern University in 1952, and was a pioneering woman in industry and business management during the 1950s through the 1980s. She worked for a variety of businesses and industries during those years in the greater Chicago area, including Ethicon, Coleman Instruments, G.D. Searle and Boise Cascade, and also did private consulting work. She next worked for the Curtis Mathes Corporation in east Texas as its human resource vice president, then moved to Bloomington with her husband to operate a Curtis Mathes Rent to Own store. Along the way, she often encountered resistance and resentment from some of the male executives with which she worked, but had a very satisfying career none-the-less. ​​​​
