Chairman, CFH Docmail Ltd
Dave Broadway leads the UK’s largest provider of ‘hybrid mail’. CFH Docmail allows customers to send post from the comfort of their own home via their computer or smartphone – saving time and money.
Sustainability is a key focus for the business. It has reduced energy use by 20% since launch. More than 10% of its energy is produced through solar roof space and the company sources its remaining energy from renewable providers. CFH has planted more than 100,000 trees with the Woodland Trust through the Top Tree Initiative, which Dave founded. The company has also given away over 50,000 trees to customers at events and exhibitions.
He says the main motivation behind CFH is to combat climate change, and provide a seamless experience for the customer.
When asked for his key piece of business advice, Dave instructs, “establish your own direct route to the market.”
