Announcing The IVC Evidensia Pet Funeral And Crematorium Board

Thursday, July 28, 2022

As we continue to develop our service channels across the Group, we are delighted to announce the establishment of a new Pet Funeral and Crematorium board to steer our strategic channel development of this critical service. 

Philippe Thomas, a qualified vet and CEO of Veternity, our largest and most geographically diverse pet funeral business, will chair the board as Group Head of Pet Funerals and Crematoriums in addition to his current responsibilities. The board will include representatives from across the Group. The first meeting will take place in September following Philippe’s establishment of the board with our country leads.
In a similar way to the successful Farm and Equine board established 18 months ago, and the other clinical boards before it, the Pet Funeral and Crematorium board will lead the strategic development of this channel ensuring we share learnings across the Group, develop new and innovative ways of working and are at the forefront globally in areas such as ESG and the use of technology. The operational line and P&L management of our individual crematorium businesses will remain within countries.
