Anthony Barton

Anthony earned his Business Degree from Santa Barbara Business College in 1991. Always a self-motivated and hardworking individual, he put himself through school by cleaning carpets and doing odd jobs. In 2004 he started “Perfect Polish” by cleaning the toughest jobs he could find – ones that others weren’t willing to do. Through hard work and a positive attitude, Perfect Polish has grown every year and by any measure has been a tremendous success.

Anthony is a man of many passions. He is passionate about his wife and about his three children. He is passionate about the assortment of kids he and his family have “adopted.” He is passionate about mentoring young people. He is passionate about his business and about integrating the passions of his life with his business.

“The Comprehensive Quality and Corporate Citizenship ideals of our Core Values are not slogans, but opportunities to put into action those deep yearnings which bear the fruit of joy and peace and ultimately outlast the best of us. Running a business, as in competing in a triathlon, demands that we give it our all. I like to win, but I do not have to win. As long as I have played by the rules and done my best, then I am at peace.”

In 2008, Anthony came in first place in the Sprint division of the Los Angeles Triathlon at the age of 40. In 2010 he was one of five qualifiers from Southern California in his division in the Ford Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii.

In addition to being founder and CEO of Perfect Polish, Anthony is the driving force behind creating The A Specialist and providing a comprehensive solution to his customers in maintaining the cleanliness of their businesses and ensuring they stay compliant with all of the regulatory agencies. At the same time, he is also the driving force behind the charitable work that is inseparable from his business. He has chosen to integrate “Children’s Hope Chest” and “Hope International” into his company. Both of these organizations are well-established charities that support the type of work that he is most passionate about –repairing broken lives by giving people hope, faith, love, value, sustenance and work.
