Join us on September 19, 2024, at 2:00 PM EDT for Designing for the Future: Principles in Cemetery Cremation Development, with Gary Freytag, CCFE, former ICCFA President and CEO of Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum in Cincinnati, Ohio. 

Today’s cremation customers seek more than traditional cemetery offerings. Gary will discuss how cemeteries can adapt their products to meet these new preferences. He will cover the importance of balancing aesthetics with density and revenue generation. Drawing from his extensive travels across North America, Gary will share Spring Grove’s approach and offer design principles that all cemeteries can adopt to better serve cremation customers. 

Gary is President and Chief Executive Officer of Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum. He joined the organization in 2003 after previously serving in executive positions in the high-tech and manufacturing industries. He holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from Dartmouth and an MBA from Harvard.
