Wilbert Funeral Services Promotes Matt Stewart to Regional Vice-President

Wilbert Funeral Services is pleased to announce the promotion of Matt Stewart to Regional Vice-President for the direct operations in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Colorado and North Texas.  His responsibilities include sales and marketing as well as operational oversight for the twelve Wilbert Funeral Services locations serving funeral professionals throughout the region.

Stewart joined Suhor Industries, which was recently merged into Wilbert Funeral Services, in 2007 in a sales capacity for the Oklahoma City location.  He advanced to Regional Manager for the entire Oklahoma, Arkansas and Colorado region in 2012.

“Over the past seven years Matt has earned the respect of our customers as well as everyone within the organization and I know that he will further advance the growth of the region,” said Dennis Welzenbach, President of Wilbert Funeral Services.

A licensed funeral director and embalmer, Stewart has been involved in the funeral service industry since his teenage years working in a family funeral business.  He graduated from Dallas Institute of Funeral Service in 1994 and subsequently served as funeral director and embalmer at several Oklahoma funeral homes until joining Suhor in 2007.

“The growth of our region is attributable to the dedicated individuals at our locations and the confidence placed in us by our customers,” Stewart commented. “While I am privileged to take on this role, I realize that success is contingent on the commitment of our entire team and I thank them for that.”
