Suzanne Grahame has joined Golden Charter this month as its new Chief Executive Officer.
She takes over from outgoing CEO Ronnie Wayte, whose 10 year stewardship of the company saw it grow into the UK market leader in funeral plans with over £1 billion of live plans. Joining at the start of the month, Suzanne addressed her new colleagues at the company’s annual conference, which coincided with her first day in the role.
