Miller will remain an adviser to StoneMor GP and vice chairman of the board following his retirement. The board has engaged the nationally recognized executive search firm of Heidrick & Struggles to assist in identifying candidates to replace Miller.
Robert B. Hellman Jr., lead director of the board of directors and chairman of the general partner said, “I have known Larry as a personal friend and a dynamic business colleague for over 15 years and have enjoyed partnering and working with him. As the co-founder of StoneMor, Larry played an instrumental part in the formation and creation of the company, and I want to thank him for his leadership, long service and unwavering commitment to delivering on our mission: To help families memorialize each life with dignity.”
“I have been thinking about retiring for some time and wanted to ensure an orderly transition for the business,” Miller said. “It has been an honor and privilege to work with and partner with the incredible team of men and women at StoneMor and the families we serve. I am proud of our achievements, especially over the last 13 years as a public company, during which we have grown to become one of the largest owners and operators of cemeteries and funeral homes in the United States. I am grateful to our board and associates for their unwavering encouragement and look forward to continuing to support StoneMor as a director following my retirement in August.”
