Funeral Services, Inc. has named Michael Faherty as its new executive vice president of client relations, blending Faherty’s current role with Argent Financial Group’s Funeral & Cemetery Trust division.

In his blended role with both FSI and Argent, Faherty will seek opportunities to bring the benefits of both companies to existing and future clients, including sharing more options in investments and recordkeeping for preneed contracts for funeral homes and cemeteries, as well as cemetery endowment care needs.

“Since FSI has joined Argent Financial Group, the partnership has allowed clients of both companies to have access to more streamlined services,” said Bill Williams, FSI president and CEO. “Bringing Michael on board in this new blended role furthers our joint commitment to efficient service delivery for funeral home and cemetery firms.”

Faherty has been serving clients in the deathcare industry for more than seven years. His experience at Argent Financial Group spans new business development and relationship management where he has helped to strategically grow capabilities with funeral homes and cemetery firms.

“My goal for this new role is to ensure that FSI clients continue to receive the same great service they have always received while bringing them more options in investments and recordkeeping,” said Faherty. “The deathcare profession is at a pivotal time as the industry adapts to changing consumer trends. The preneed market in particular is well positioned for growth as consumers increasingly seek to plan ahead, and we look forward to supporting firms as they look to match this market growth.”
