The Outlook Group would like to congratulate Kyle D. Aler in his new role in Business Development for the states of Tennessee and Georgia. Kyle will be focusing on this new opportunity along with continuing his role supporting Raymer-Kepner Funeral Home in Huntersville, North Carolina as an Advance Funeral Planner. As the Outlook Group continues to grow and support funeral homes throughout the Southeast, Kyle is looking forward to the opportunity. “As a funeral director who has worked in all aspects of the funeral business, it’s a humbling opportunity to take this step. I look forward to building relationships with funeral homes throughout Georgia and Tennessee,” Aler states.
