ANDREA & BARRY CAYTON

Barry L. Cayton is the President and CEO of the Goldrich Group, where he is responsible for the leadership and direction of the Goldrich/Cayton family’s business endeavors. Barry is also the Founder and President of Audio Command Systems, the West Coast’s premiere residential audio, home theater, lighting control, and home automation company. Andrea Goldrich Cayton is a philanthropic and charitable leader and community organizer. Andrea is the daughter of Jona Goldrich, Holocaust survivor and Southland real estate leader. As a true honor to her father, she serves as Vice President of the Board of the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust, which he founded. Additionally she serves on the Boards of the LA Jewish Federation, WISE Readers to Leaders and the Auschwitz Birkenau Foundation. In addition to Andrea’s leadership roles, Andrea and Barry’s philanthropy includes Boston Children’s Hospital, medical research foundations, universities, and museums.

Barry and Andrea are married 23 years with 3 beautiful children, Garrett, Lindsay and Derek. They are champions of the new Cayton Children’s Museum by ShareWell, committed to helping families raise children and youth who strive to be their best selves, give back and work to repair the injustices in the world. Both are committed to community and serve as role models for each of us. Anne Frank wrote in her diary, “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” Andrea and Barry seize each and every moment to do just that.
