HOUSTON - The Signature Group has announced that it has acquired Daniels Family Funeral Services from Kevin R. Daniels, according to a news release. Daniels consists of eight funeral homes in Albuquerque, Rio Rancho and Socorro, as well as three cemeteries and two crematories in Albuquerque and Rio Rancho. With an intense focus on family service in the greater Albuquerque community, Kevin Daniels has grown Daniels Family Funeral Services into an industry leading business serving over 2200 families annually. He will remain actively engaged with The Signature Group to insure that the level of service and growth expected from Daniels continues well into the future.
“We are very excited that our first acquisition as a private company is a large, premiere business with one of the most respected owners in the industry,” said J. Bradley Green, co-founder of The Signature Group. “Daniels Family Funeral Services’ infrastructure and reputation as a high quality operation will immediately give The Signature Group a strong foundation to grow into a leading private funeral home and cemetery organization.”
“Kevin Daniels’ decision to entrust his family business to The Signature Group validates our belief that there are some owners whose priority is making sure that their business remains operationally strong and under the control of individuals who share their long-term focus on serving families for many years to come,” added Jay Dodds, co-founder of The Signature Group. “For these owners, The Signature Group is a very attractive succession planning option. We are extremely pleased to associate ourselves with the great employees and leadership at Daniels Family Funeral Services.”
The Signature Group is a privately held consolidation company with the same focus on operations and serving families as that of the well-respected independents in the industry. It provides independent owners the opportunity to join a company founded by two individuals with proven track records whose operational goal is to build a long-lasting organization that remains under their control.
