Written by Jake Johnson, president and CEO of Johnson Consulting Group, Staying Alive in the Funeral & Cemetery Profession holds the insights you need to understand current trends and opportunities to buy, grow, and sell your business while building a legacy you can be proud of.
Had to give Vince and Johnson Consulting a shoutout thank you again for the invaluable experience in Scottsdale with Dave Shank last March and May. Had to give credit where it’s due and hope to send some of my staff to see you in the future.
Hope all is well with you, sir. Thanks again for a meaningful experience last year!
Before the Incentive Compensation Plan (ICP), our company’s bonus payouts lacked consistency and transparency. I primarily decided on them based on what I considered a good quarter or year. However, with the ICP in place, it has eliminated any confusion among employees regarding the timing and eligibility for bonuses. Additionally, it has positively impacted our survey response rate, as the funeral directors now understand that a specific response threshold must be met for bonuses to be awarded.
The ICP is a vital tool that ensures bonuses align with company performance goals while remaining fair and attainable for employees. Once we’ve set the annual budget, my involvement is minimal until we receive the quarterly reports. These reports are invaluable for our quarterly reviews and decision making.
I highly recommend Johnson Consulting’s Incentive Compensation Plan. It has revolutionized our bonus approach, making it more meaningful and aligned with our company’s success. The customization, ease of management, and insightful reports make it an excellent choice for improving compensation structures.
We have been with JCG for about four years. As we have expanded and grown we hired our own CFO and separated from JCG. After four months we realized we had made a mistake. I called JCG and explained what had happened and asked if they could help us out. Of course they did and with in four weeks they had everything caught back up for us. They have been terrific. Nelson and Niccole have been the biggest help to us, but I know there is a whole team working behind the scenes to keep us going.
Vince and Nelson did an outstanding job of facilitating the steering committee meeting. They treated our business as if it were their own. Their thoughtful input, suggestions, and comments were always very insightful and helpful. Please relay to them my heartfelt gratitude for their passion and dedication of making our operations and business the best. We look forward to implementing what we went over and becoming a better funeral service organization.
What a powerful and meaningful Customer Service Revolution retreat you facilitated for our team. We are already implementing our learnings to create powerful and meaningful experiences for our members.
We turned to JCG for their expertise and guidance to help us transition the business which was the heart and soul of who we are…and left with so much more. We consider Karen a dear friend and are blessed to have had her leadership as we moved from ownership to retirement. We often remark that without Johnson’s support, we would still be mired in the process of finding the right successor owner for our business. Trusting JCG to navigate the way was, hands down, the best decision for our family.

Once we made up our mind to sell, Johnson’s were quick to market it and bring some favorable offers to the table. We appreciated Jake & Brian’s expertise in the transition and completion of the sale.
John and Amy Potter
To the Johnson’s and staff at Johnson Consulting, thank you so much. Throughout the process beginning with evaluation to closing you were there for me. Your industry expertise, connections with qualified buyers and your negotiating skills all proved invaluable in attaining a satisfying outcome both for me and the buyer. I would highly recommend your services and wish you all the best of luck into the future.
Johnson Consulting Group’s disciplined and structured processes resulted in several very serious offers and maximized the value we received…Tom and Jake were sincere in wanting to help me reach a decision, whatever it might be. Tom made me realize he was more than a broker, he was a trusted advisor and friend, with my best interests at heart. JCG helped secure my family’s future and we are forever grateful.
We sold our small funeral home on January 11, 2018. Karen McCurdy (Johnson Consulting Group) was the primary person we worked with. Karen was instrumental in helping us get our business sold!
From the beginning, Karen guided us step by step thru this process. Karen listened and advised us every step of the way.

Johnson Consulting diligently researches every phase of an acquisition project which gives the buyer and seller the confidence they need to make a fair and equitable agreement. Acquisitions would never happen without an intelligent articulation of all the aspects of a complex deal.
The specific data that I needed in order to make quick and accurate decisions was always at my fingertips. With the systems that Johnson Consulting brings to the table, I am able to draw the same data and specific information that I need to operate my business at a very high level and at an extremely affordable cost.
