James Tovey Joins Golden Charter Board
Golden Charter and The Golden Charter Trust have the unique benefit of three representatives from the funeral director community, drawn from the elected SAIFCharter Executive Board, serving on the company’s board, and one as a trustee of the Trust.
Each is selected following a challenging appointment process and appointed for their ability to represent the culture, values and philosophy of the independent funeral director network.
Julian Walker, the chairman of SAIFCharter, said he was “extremely excited” to announce the appointment of James Tovey onto the board of Golden Charter, subject to the board’s final confirmation.
He said: “I have absolute confidence that James will bring balance and considered input to the development of Golden Charter’s strategy for the next few years – James is his own man and brings experience from his family business as well as his time as a chartered accountant.”
James has served as a trustee of Golden Charter Trust for the last two years. He is set to be replaced by Paul Stevenson as the funeral director representative on the Board of Trustees.
Julian added: “Paul is the epitome of an independent family funeral director and highly regarded in this community, among the funeral directors of Scotland, and within SAIFCharter. He is an ideal candidate to represent our views to those managing the millions of pounds within the trust.”
