PHOENIX – Erin Whitaker has joined The Foresight Companies, according to a news release.
“Erin Whitaker is a person of many talents and holistic business experience. We are very excited about having her join with us in the role of a financial and management consultant,” said company president Dan Isard. “Erin has a MBA in international business and is a licensed funeral director and embalmer. She previously worked for Eastman Kodak Co. and most recently as the operations manager in a family funeral business. Her education and life experiences make her a perfect addition to our team.”
“I have spent a lifetime within this great profession as a third-generation funeral director and have experienced all aspects of funeral service. The knowledge I have gained within the funeral industry coupled with my other business experiences and education, give me the ability to see funeral service from a unique perspective,” Whitaker said. “Through my professional interactions with Dan, I have seen first-hand the impact he has had on funeral service. My new role with the Foresight Company will enable me to help owners and managers understand how to make their businesses reach their full potential."
Whitaker’s role will essentially be the same as the role of Isard. She will be a financial and management consultant.
“Erin’s experience with small family funeral homes gives her a chance to empathize with her clients, far greater than I could have done when I started servicing this profession 30 years ago,” Isard said. “Erin has a passion for helping this profession change in a proactive fashion and we want her on our team with that energy.”
Whitaker can be reached at 800-426-0165.
