FORT WAYNE, IN, May 12, 2014 – Frank Kaiser, a proven leader and veteran of both the airline and funeral service industries, was named president of the DW McComb Group, effective today.

Kaiser has served as president and CEO of Eagle’s Wings Air (EWA), the nation’s leading provider of logistics services to North American funeral homes and shipping services, since its founding in 2007. In his new role, Kaiser will continue to lead and manage the day-to-day operations of EWA along with those of Inman Shipping Worldwide, which the DW McComb Group acquired on May 1, 2014. Both companies will continue to operate as separate, independent entities moving forward.

“It’s an honor to serve this profession and play an integral role in the long-term strategy and success of the DW McComb Group and its companies,” Kaiser said. “Both EWA and Inman are market leaders in what they do and offer complementary services – which means we can now offer a full spectrum of shipping and logistics services to funeral directors on a global scale.”

Through a number of strategic initiatives and service/product extensions, Kaiser has guided EWA to sustained growth since its founding six-plus years ago. EWA and Kaiser’s team have managed the successful air transportation of 55,000-plus loved ones to their final destination on behalf of thousands of funeral homes throughout North America.

Overall, Kaiser has more than 20 years of aviation and logistics experience and served professionals in funeral services for more than 10 years.

DW McComb Group CEO David W. McComb launched the new holding company, headquartered in Fort Wayne, Ind., this month. McComb is a licensed funeral director and fourth-generation co-owner of D.O. McComb & Sons Funeral Homes, a family of seven funeral homes managing 1,500+ calls per year in Fort Wayne. A successful entrepreneur and investor, David has also founded companies offering a wide range of products, services and segments within the funeral service profession, including pre-need planning software, online obituaries and logistics.

“During this time of transformation for both EWA and Inman, there’s no one better to lead both companies than Frank,” McComb said. “Frank’s business acumen, leadership experience, work ethic, commitment to serving his fellow man and, most importantly, his entrepreneurial spirit make him a perfect fit for this role.”
