Orlando, FL — Foundation Partners Group, a leading provider of innovative funeral and cemetery experiences and products, today announced the acquisition of Riverside Funeral Home with three locations in Albuquerque, Los Lunas and Santa Fe, New Mexico. The acquisition represents Foundation Partners Group’s first entry into the New Mexico market.
In 2004, Charlie Finegan, Riverside Funeral Home’s founder, saw an opportunity to expand his mortuary trade business and began offering cremation services directly to the public. From the beginning, Riverside’s mission was to provide dignified and affordable service to every family they served. After a period of rapid growth in Albuquerque, Finegan expanded to serve Los Lunas in 2012 and Santa Fe in 2017.
When asked why he selected Foundation Partners Group, Finegan said, “I chose Foundation Partners because they understood the value of what my employees and I have built and are committed to growing the business.”
Tom Kominsky, Foundation Partners Group chief financial officer, said, “We look forward to working with such an innovative brand that understands the New Mexico market and has grown alongside the community for years. They put customer needs first and share our vision for compassionate funeral care. We are excited to welcome the Riverside team to the Foundation Partners family.”
