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 three small children Ned, Clemmie and Willoughby 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 Chandler

Holly Chandler

Director, Les Allues & Alderney
Holly - the 'Fish' (her last name was Fisher before she married the lovely Del) spends the winter in Meribel running the resorts and looking after guests with Fleur 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! Keep a look out for the latest additions to the F&P team - Wilf and Martha
Emma Duffield

Emma Duffield

Sales Manager, London & Surrey
Emma joined the F&P team in season 14/15 and manages sales and marketing from the UK office. Prior to this she has worked in both the finance and travel industry, and has also run luxury chalets in the French and Swiss Alps for 3 winters (Val d'Isere and Verbier). A passion for skiing, good food, and two of her favourite resorts - Meribel and Val d’Isere - drew her to F&P. She is now based in London and very much enjoys a role that incorporates all of the things she loves - with the added bonus of as much time in the mountains as she can fit in when not at her desk!
Lucy Deamer

Lucy Deamer

Holiday Coordinator, Meribel
Lucy is lucky enough to live in Meribel all year round with her husband and 2 daughters and loves the summers almost as much as the wonderful snowy winters. Lucy has just returned from maternity leave and does all the pre-holiday care, so 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 5 year old who is already on red runs!!

Francesca has been working in hospitality since university, both in management roles and assisting with the set-up of a new restaurant concept. She’s been skiing since she was 9, and from then, she fell in love with the mountains. This has inspired her to join F&P for her first season. Francesca is a foodie and can’t wait to combine her passion for great hospitality, quality food and skiing.

Katie Hodges

Self Catered Manager - Meribel
Having worked last season in Méribel as a chalet host, I am so excited to be coming 'home' to Méribel as part of the F&P team. Since graduating in 2015 I have spent time working and travelling in the Indian Ocean, the Alps and South America, in a variety of roles including hospitality, language teaching and logistics. I'm a skier at heart, and after ending up in the bushes last winter on a snowboard, I'll be sticking to the planks this season! See you on the mountain!

Leandri Kerschbaumer

Leandri Kerschbaumer

Chalet Chef - Val d'Isère
This season 17-18 will be my second year with F&P. After getting a taste of mountain life last year, I’m completely hooked! I have a true obsession with cooking and food, and I’m so blessed I can travel as much as I do with my career. My cooking style is modern European, with flavour over frill, meaning the ingredients can speak for themselves. When I’m not hitting the slopes in Val, I’m either working in commercial kitchens in London or privately in the Med and on yachts.
Simon Broadley

Simon Broadley

Chalet Host - Meribel
This will be my first my first season in the mountains, having spent the last three years combining university studies with working in all sorts of hospitality venues, from private boxes and music festivals to pubs and weddings. I’ve skied the 3 Vallées with my family for as long as I can remember, so I know the ski area like the back of my hand and can’t wait to spend the winter in Meribel.
Matt Keene

Having been shoved down a mountain at the age of three and skiing annually since then, at 30 I've finally decided to do a full alpine season! I'm looking forward to meeting lots of new people and hopefully improving my snowboarding.

I have recently completed my Law degree and Legal Practice Course with a MSc in Law, Business and Management. I am extremely excited to be spending my winter with the F&P team in Meribel before starting life as a Trainee Solicitor in the City. I have been described as a pocket rocket on skis, but I am keen to give the world of snowboarding a go this winter!
Pippa Mathews

Having recently graduated from university, I’m beyond excited for my first season in the Alps. Whilst I’ve been skiing for years with my family, as well as trips with uni, I’m really looking forward to improving and might even try my hand at boarding as well! I’ve worked in a number of different hospitality roles from bar work to the Wimbledon Championships and one of my favourite hobbies is baking, so I’m looking forward to helping the chalet chefs create some incredible cakes over the winter!

After starting my kitchen career in the alps, I've worked my way up from a resort hotel, to Michelin starred restaurants. Now I'm looking forward to creating my own menus and exploring the three valleys off piste on my board!

John Jenkins

Driver - Meribel
Having previously spent time working as a Subsea Engineer in the North Sea and Azerbaijan, I left the office life behind me to enjoy spending winter seasons in the Alps. This will be my fourth season in the Three Valleys, and first in Meribel and with Fish and Pips. Having recently embarked upon a project manufacturing my own skis, feel free to ask if you want to try out some prototypes during season 17/18...
Naomi Makanjuola

Naomi Makanjuola

Chalet Chef - Meribel
Having always had a passion for cooking and spending most of my late teens working as front of house in country pubs and restaurants, after uni I made the move to the kitchen. Since then I've been working in corporate kitchens through out London and spending the summer with a health based food company, and helping with a few private weddings. I enjoy cooking all things sweet, and all things spicy and I'm very excited about spending the winter in Meribel, both in the kitchen and on the slopes.
Joe Glover

Joe Glover

Resort Assistant - Val d'Isere
After an incredible holiday with Fish & Pips in Meribel, I decided to hang up my jacket and tie, jump in at the deep end, and join the team. I can't think of anywhere better in the world to combine my love of skiing, the outdoors, and also put my French to good use. I think it's going to be a good season ahead...
Cate Barr

Cate Barr

Chalet Host - Val d'Isere
I graduated from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland last year and have always wanted to experience a ski season in France. Having skied in The Alps from the age of four with friends and family, I can’t wait to hit the slopes for a full season in such a beautiful area, perhaps finally giving snowboarding a go. I’m looking forward to getting to know people who share the same love for the mountains in what should be a fantastic season ahead!
Zoe Clack

Zoe Clack

Chalet Host - Val d'Isere
I recently moved back to the UK after spending four years studying in the Netherlands and have since been on the lookout for my next adventure. Having really enjoyed skiing for the first time this year, I decided I needed an excuse to spend a whole season in the Alps to hopefully become a competent skier! More recently I’ve been working in various sectors in my local brewery so can’t wait to do something entirely different as a chalet host with Fish & Pips-I’m really looking forward to meeting lots of new people on and off the slopes!

Coming from Australia training under some of Australia's best Chefs I have been traveling and cooking for the last 3 years. I did a season a few years ago and fell in love with the snow and being able to combine my international fusion style cooking and the snow! Food is my life and passion.
