Calvin Toler Joins Aurora Casket
Aurora, IN — Aurora Casket Company, the largest family-owned supplier in funeral service has recently added industry veteran Calvin Toler as a Strategic Account Manager.
Toler has been a licensed funeral director for more than 30 years and has worked with funeral firms across the country on merchandising and service enhancement. Based in Orlando, Toler will be responsible for business development and key account management throughout the southeast United States.
“The people, products, and programs from Aurora may be the best kept secret in funeral service,” Toler said. “I believe Aurora is the best positioned supplier to help independent funeral service providers take control of their future and succeed.”
