Gather’s passion for their work stems from their firm belief that supporting families through loss is one of the noblest professions. Chase Downs, Gather’s Demand Generation Specialist, echoes their dedication to this cause and shares invaluable insights for operating a business in this sensitive industry.
According to Downs, three pillars guide their success in the funeral service industry:

This dedication to cultivating a supportive workplace extends to their customers, ensuring an exceptional experience for everyone they serve.
In May 2022, Gather began its partnership with Alturas Capital Partners, securing a lease at Cottonwood Plaza. Gather’s team strategically selected the location to create a nurturing environment for its growing team, fueling its ongoing success.
