Funeral Directors Life announced the recent promotion of Drew Seale to executive vice president and chief marketing officer. “The board of directors, executive staff and I are excited to see how Drew will shape his new role,” said Kris Seale, president and CEO. “He has shown tremendous leadership throughout his career by growing our client base for our services, maintaining relationships with funeral homes and managing a diverse team. I have the utmost confidence in his ability as a leader to continue to support the efforts of our company and improve the lives of funeral directors nationwide.”
Seale graduated from Baylor University with a bachelor’s degree in business administration and began his employment in FDLIC’s active sales program, selling more than $1 million in preneed volume in his first year with the company. Within two years, he transitioned into sales operations, where he had been serving as vice president until this recent promotion. He and his team focused on supporting funeral homes and growing FDLIC’s various services, including social media management, Circle of Friends+ aftercare and other business solutions for funeral homes.
“I remain committed to growing our service options; serving our clients in the best, most respected way; and providing the most up-to-date information…” said Seale.
In other news, the FDLIC Board of Directors recently approved the formation of the company’s new Corporate Culture Department. The culture of FDLIC and its parent company, Directors Investment Group, is characterized by Christian values, appreciation and respect for co-workers, and a sense of mission from employees for the clients they serve. To implement this set of ideals on a larger scale, FDLIC created its Corporate Culture Department.
“This new department will be focused on building upon our legacy of optimum work-life balance, camaraderie and culture built on values like loyalty, trust, accountability, generosity and service to others,” said President and CEO Kris Seale.
Specifically for the funeral profession, the Corporate Culture Department will develop marketplace-focused programs that will be offered to funeral homes to ultimately enhance their operations and improve their overall ability to serve families.
