Neville Funerals has announced the promotion of Charmian Alexander to the role of director.
Alexander joined the company last year as general manager, with over 20 years experience in the funeral sector.
Vicky Trumper, director of Neville Funerals said: “Charmian has been a significant addition to the Neville Funerals team and her drive and expertise has been invaluable over the last year, as we undertook an extensive company rebrand and expanded our services across the region.
“Now, Charmian’s guidance is vital as we navigate these uncertain times and look to keep our teams safe and well, as their support for those in our communities that have lost loved ones has never been so important.”
In her new role, she will continue to work alongside the senior leadership team to drive the strategic direction of the business and support the company’s eight branches in delivering services locally.
Alexander added: “Neville Funerals is a very close-knit team of highly skilled, dedicated people and I feel extremely proud to be part of such a company. At times such as these we are ever mindful of the difficulties faced by many in our region.
“This includes those that are bereaved and needing extra support to plan for funerals, which are always intended to be a celebration of a life lived but which now have to be ceremonies limited to small, close family groups. We must do what we can to help and guide and reassure.”
Neville Funerals has eight branches across Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
