Golden Charter Appoints New Chief

According to City AM Golden Charter, the UK’s leading independent funeral plan provider, has appointed Suzanne Grahame as its new chief executive officer. She takes over from outgoing CEO, Ronnie Wayte, whose 10-year stewardship of the company saw it grow into the UK market leader in funeral plans with over £1bn of live plans. Suzanne joins Golden Charter from UK top-20 law firm Addleshaw Goddard where she was executive director following the amalgamation with leading Scottish commercial law firm HBJ Gateley, where she was chief executive. A professionally qualified accountant with experience across many sectors, Suzanne also worked for the Financial Conduct Authority-regulated investment fund manager Standard Life as well as serving as group finance director for Alternative Investment Market-quoted UA Group. Her focus will be building on the recent success at Golden Charter while creating a robust and forward-looking company.
