We are delighted to announce that Nick Douch Of Douch Family Funeral Directors and the Dorset Funeral Plan has been included within the inaugural Family Business United ‘Family Business Top 100,’ which recognises the exceptional contribution of individuals and their work within a family business.
Recognition in respect of:
- Inspirational Leader
- Champion of Change & Innovation
- Multi-Generational Family Business Leader
Nick is the third generation to run the firm which began as a furniture shop and grew into a chain before pivoting into funerals. In recent years it added the award-winning Dorset Funeral Plan.
Nick oversees numerous branches in east Dorset and manages to maintain the traditions while embracing modern technology. As well as buying existing businesses, the firm has launched its own from scratch and has invested heavily in rebuilding two of its large premises.
The Covid crisis was a huge test, but the branches and the staff were nimble enough to come through with an enhanced reputation – and it all came from the top.
