NewBridge Group Assists Delehanty Funeral Home in Acquisition by Pinnacle Funeral Service Delehanty Funeral Home with over 10,000 square feet, including seating for over 300. “Paul and Mary Kay Lizer’s reputation in the community is a testament to the business’ success and continued growth,” remarks Pinnacle CEO, Paul Haarer. I value the legacy the Lizer family has created with Delehanty, the funeral home they’ve invested in over the years, and most importantly their staff – many of whom have been employees for decades. Together, with the next generation funeral director and manager Garrett Lizer, we look forward to providing the same level of commitment to the community.” NewBridge Group, the merger and acquisition consultants who matched Delehanty and Pinnacle in the sale, is pleased to have yet again helped a funeral home owner find their “best-fit” buyer. “It’s important that funeral home owners know that our buyers are privately-owned businesses that understand the needs of family-owned businesses,” explains New Bridge president Tony Kumming. “They do not want to lose the loyalty their community has provided them, but rather maintain it.” Pinnacle Funeral Service is a funeral home acquisition company located in greater Atlanta that prides itself on being “anti-corporate,” which was attractive to the Lizers. “If there’s a funeral home owner who’s on the fence about selling, I’d recommend talking to NewBridge,” explains Paul Lizer. “The process was seamless and NewBridge knew from the beginning who was going to be the best option for us.” LOVES PARK,IL— The NewBridge Group is happy to announce Delehanty Funeral Home has recently sold to Pinnacle Funeral Service.
