He brings with him decades of experience in the army and with one of the UK’s oldest family-owned funeral director businesses, CPJ Field.
He said: “I joined CPJ Field, the oldest independent, family-owned and run, funeral director business, and spent just short of 10 years with them.
“I trained as a funeral director and then moved on to manage six funeral homes as a principal funeral director, then regional operating partner and finally general manager.”
He added: “I then joined the Westerleigh Group, which has given me the challenge of managing multiple crematoria while using my previous experience to help enrich the quality of service to the bereaved.
“I want our crematoria to become a big part of their local communities and to be the best we can be for our families and customers.”
