CDV French Office is a company created in 2005 by Gilbert Schaffer and Brigitte Baudoz. The idea came after some long travels around the world and life experiences abroad. The founders spent some months as backpakers in Asia and south America, then cruised the Caribean for two years. More recently they spent two years working in South America. Everytime they lef home, they had to ask family or friends to help take care of their mail and other business in France. There was no really convenient solution to be found.
So they first decided to offer a value-added internet service with full postal mail scanning. Then the company grew quickly and now offers a full virtual office in France with mail, phone and logistics services.
Gilbert Schaffer - CEO
Gilbert Schaffer is computer engineer specialising in telecom and web development. He has worked in Paris and Lyon on many different software developments.
"When we were abroad, we always had to find a solution for our business and mail in France. We asked our family to help. But I found this very embarrassing and I would have preferred a more independent solution. The growth in nternet use confirmed me that I could create a really professional online service of postal mail. Today the company's mail services operation is growing but its virtual office services continues to expand with a more important team onboard."
Brigitte Baudoz - Sales Manager
Brigitte Baudoz has worked as executive in several multinational entreprises. She knows the logistics and freight business inside out.
"Our dual competency enabled us to imagine and implement the service we were expecting . For mail, we offer a safe and innovating solution. For parcels, our flexible system helps foreign citizen to do shopping in France but also provides a logistics platform for all professional needs. I really enjoy helping people who need a reliable agent in France for all aspects of their business.".
