Orlando, FL – Foundation Partners Group, a leading provider of innovative funeral, cemetery and cremation experiences and products, announced this week that Mike Bischoff has joined the firm as Vice President, Business Development.
“Mike brings a unique perspective to our team having worked as both a supplier and a consultant” stated Bob Bukala, President and CEO of Foundation Partners Group. “His experience in helping funeral home owners navigate succession planning from the consulting side, gives him a very nuanced understanding of what’s important to them and how we can help them achieve their goals. Mike is a great addition to our growing business development team and we look forward to his contributions.”
“My time as a consultant gave me a solid foundation on the process of selling and acquiring businesses”, said Mike Bischoff. “Funeral home owners have spent a lifetime building the value of their business, and when they begin to explore succession planning, they obviously want to be rewarded for the years of hard work. I feel that Foundation Partners has been in the best position to help these owners achieve their objectives.”
“While obtaining fair market value is important” added Bischoff. “They want to know whomever they partner with will continue to serve their community and build upon their legacy. It was Foundation Partners’ commitment to not only each brand’s heritage, but to providing an opportunity for growth to former owners as well as employees that impressed me. I couldn’t be more excited about becoming part of the team.”
Mike Bischoff has more than 20 years of business development experience in the funeral services industry. Prior to joining Foundation Partners, Bischoff was Director of Strategic Accounts for Batesville where he was responsible for developing and implementing strategic sales plans for key national accounts.
