Our Team

Vaughn C. Greene
Founding Partner, President, Licensed Funeral Director, Pastor

A native of Baltimore, Maryland, Vaughn Greene shares his 30+ years of funeral experience with his internal team of professionals, as well as the thousands of families that have come to rely on him for compassionate care. Since the company’s inception, Vaughn’s leadership has shaped its ministry to reflect the highest standards in the funeral industry, and has positioned Batchelor Brothers, as the standard of excellence in the minority markets it serves and beyond.

Throughout his career, Vaughn has remained deeply committed to educating the community on issues regarding funeral care. His perspective is highly regarded and he is considered a valuable voice and resource for information. His generosity is displayed not only in the care he provides to the families he and his team serve, but also in his community outreach, including anti-drug and violence initiatives, as a member of several boards, as a thoughtful speaker to aspiring youth, as well as through sponsorships and other philanthropic actions.

Vaughn earned his degree in Mortuary Science and has an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters. He also holds professional memberships with the Funeral Director and Morticians Association of Maryland and Pennsylvania, as well as the National Funeral Directors Association. Local ministries have recognized him for being a model of success for his Christian entrepreneurship, and in 2010 he accepted the call to pastor Gethsemane Baptist Church in Baltimore.

Vaughn is the proud husband to his high school sweetheart, Brigette. They have two children and their oldest, Brittney, along with Brigette, are both integral members of the family business.
