Springfield, OH—This fall when other students are crawling through caves or memorizing lines for a play, two management students will assist the owner of several funeral homes to identify the needs of its customers. The team, Marc Sewell and Adam Rogier, will provide their client with an unbiased, fresh viewpoint of its services, service level, and assess the opportunities of the business as a whole. Additionally, they will craft ways to communicate the firm’s unique positioning to customers.
