CAROLINE ROSE HUNT - January 8, 1923 - November 13, 2018
Mrs. Hunt has been the guiding spirit behind The Rosewood Corporation since its formation in 1976 as a multi-generational, family-owned and operated company with diverse worldwide interests in energy, property and private equity investments.
Based on Mrs. Hunt’s leadership, The Rosewood Corporation has a proud history and tradition of excellence. During a Rosewood Corporation President's Meeting in 1985, Mrs. Hunt was asked what she felt should exemplify all Rosewood companies. She answered without hesitation, “High morals and good ethics. I'd like to know that each company is based on the highest of personal and business ethics.”
Preserving and enhancing the environment has also been a priority for Mrs. Hunt and The Rosewood Corporation. A unique private/public partnership between Wetlands Management, L.P. and the North Texas Municipal Water District resulted in the formation of the John Bunker Sands Wetland Center, a nonprofit, charitable organization. The Wetland Center was created with the mission of providing clean water through new innovative methodologies to municipalities in North Texas, educating the public, providing research opportunities, wildlife management, and wetland systems. www.wetlandcenter.com
