Our Team

We always pride ourselves on putting together a fantastic and happy team year on year.  It is this team that make your holiday and that bring guests back to F&P time and time again.

Philippa Hartley

Philippa Hartley

Director, Surrey
After 7 years in the Alps Philippa (the 'Pips') is now based full time in the UK. When not being run ragged by her two small children Ned and Clemmie she can be found at her desk in Surrey, holding the purse strings! Having stepped back from the day to day running of the business in the Alps, Philippa now governs all things financial and leads on the business planning. This winter she hopes to spend more time in the Alps both for work and pleasure – including the annual F&P family holiday – what better way to check the standards of our holidays than have a Director and all her extended family descend on a resort!
Holly Fisher

Holly Fisher

Director, Les Allues & Alderney
Holly - the 'Fish' spends the winter in Meribel running the resorts and looking after guests with Clare and the rest of the team. Holly thrives on working alongside a great team, meeting the guests, being out in the mountains and enjoying the superb food produced by the F&P chefs year on year. Holly's summers are spent running her second business The Georgian House - a successful restaurant, pub and hotel on Alderney in the Channel Islands. Look out for Holly on the slopes around Meribel and Val d'Isere and expect to see her for a canapé or two during your stay with Fish & Pips, she does need to make sure they're to the right standard after all!
Clare Truphet

Clare Truphet

HR and Operations Manager
Spending winters in Meribel and summers in Bristol, Clare looks after the teams in Meribel and Val d'Isere, ensuring guests all have lovely holidays with us and taking care of the chalets. In the summer she works with Holly and Philippa getting things ready for the coming season and dealing with all things related to our operations over in France. She is excited about getting stuck in to her sixth year with F&P, working with a great team yet again, and looking after lots of repeat and some new guests.
Emma Duffield

Emma Duffield

Sales & Marketing
Emma joined the team last season and predominantly manages all sales and enquiries from our UK office.. She also assists with marketing projects, website management, blogging and social media. A passion for skiing, food, and her two favourite resorts, Meribel and Val d’Isere are what drew her to F&P. Having lived in London for a few years the mountains tempted her away, and she has been lucky enough to run luxury chalets in the Alps for 3 winters (one in Val d’Isere and two in Verbier). Her resort knowledge and experience of what makes a perfect ski holiday means she can offer invaluable advice when booking your stay.
Lucy Deamer

Lucy Deamer

Holiday Co-ordinator
Lucy is lucky enough to live in Meribel all year round with her husband and daughter Frankie and loves the summers almost as much as the wonderful snowy winters. Lucy joined our team last year and does all the pre-holiday care from booking your transfers, ski schools and arranging your ski passes to noting your particular favourite tipple or arranging special requests, anything to make your holiday perfect. You might see her out on the slopes attempting to keep up with her 3 year old who is already on blue runs!!
Lexi Alston

Lexi Alston

Chalet Host - Meribel
Many people ask me, "when are you returning down under?" A question I find hard to answer, since moving abroad last year, as much as I love the London life nothing compares to making first tracks in fresh powpow and memorable evenings spent entertaining guests! I'm a passionate foodie with the appetite for travel and meeting new people, which is why I simply had to return to the Alps. Sorry Australia, Fish & Pips are calling!
Monica Cardoso

Monica Cardoso

Chalet Chef - Meribel
This will be my first season in the winter world. I’ll be spending half of my day cooking and the other half trying to learn everything snow related! I’m a typical food and travel lover who loves to listen to people’s stories and ideas. I can’t wait to get up there!
