Neville Funerals has announced it has appointed Charmian Alexander as its new general manager.
Alexander has more than 20 years’ experience in the funeral sector, working her way up from funeral arranger to funeral director, manager and most recently, regional operations manager for Co-op Funeralcare where she oversaw more than 100 branches across London.
The appointment comes following Neville Funerals’ recent corporate rebrand, where Alexander will work alongside the senior management team to support the company’s eight branches.
Alexander said: “I was already very familiar with Neville Funerals as they have an excellent reputation within the industry. Their values are very much aligned with my own, so I was delighted to be offered this opportunity.
“Having worked for large national funeral directors for most of my career I was really excited about the prospect of joining an independent, family-owned firm. It offers me the opportunity to play a role in the direction of the business and influence the impact we have within the local communities. It’s a very close knit team of highly skilled people who are passionate about what they do and I’m looking forward to putting my skills and experience to good use.”
Vicky Trumper, director of Neville Funerals, added: “We have built our reputation on trust and recommendation, and it’s the skills and expertise of the people behind the brand that have achieved this. Charmian will be an excellent addition to the Neville Funerals team. Her experience will be invaluable and her appointment will strengthen our leadership team and provide a much-needed resource as we look to expand our reach across the region.”
