Our Team

We pride ourselves on having a fantastic and happy team. It’s this team that makes your holiday a true holiday; from an initial enquiry, answering questions and requests with our concierge service or physically looking after you in the resort. We know it is the team that brings guests back to Fish&Pips time and time again.

This is why, in our chalets we pride ourselves on carefully selecting a team of ski, hospitality and food enthusiasts, year on year. We adopt a relaxed professional approach to service. This fits with the chalet environment, creating a home-from-home feel for both guests and team.

When it comes to our Summer holidays, it is our team who will do all the hard work for you and make sure that no detail of your trip is left untouched. They are experts and they are happy to share their knowledge with you.

Philippa Hartley

Philippa Hartley

Director, Surrey
After seven 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 Fish&Pips 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, Méribel & Alderney
Holly - the 'Fish' (her last name was Fisher before she married the lovely Del) spends the winter in Méribel 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 Fish&Pips 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 Méribel 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 Fish&Pips team - Wilf and Martha.

Concierge Manager, Méribel
Lucy is lucky enough to live in Méribel all year round with her husband and two daughters and loves the summers almost as much as the wonderful snowy winters. Lucy 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 six year old who is already on red runs!!

Clare is based in Bath in the summer, and out in Méribel during the winter months. An avid skier, and most at home in the mountains Clare has spent summers and winters in Méribel and thoroughly enjoys sharing the mountains with our team year after year.

With a background in sales and travel design Gemma is here to answer any queries you may have regarding any of our properties and their availability for the season. A keen skier (who is married to an even keener skier!) and mother of two, she has spent many hours on the slopes both skiing and handing out snacks to little mouths.

Victoria Clark

Victoria Clark

Marketing Manager, Méribel
Vicky first worked for Fish&Pips in 2014/2015 as a chalet host in Du Guide. What was meant to be one quick season before returning to a marketing career in London quickly escalated in a complete lifestyle change after falling madly in love with the skiing, the mountains, Méribel and a ski instructor. She now lives in Méribel for much of the year and works alongside Holly on managing the marketing side of the business for both our ski and our new sun holidays.
Jordan Ford

Jordan Ford

Resort Manager
Entering my fourth consecutive winter in the French Alps I think it’s time to admit I’m addicted to the snow! This year I’m thrilled to be back in Méribel alongside our brilliant Fish&Pips team, where we’ll ensure your holiday is just the way you like it, down to the last detail. I’m the type who likes an adventure and I enjoy hiking the backcountry to get those fresh tracks at sunrise. That said there’s nothing quite like a vin chaud with friends after a satisfying day on the piste. After the snow melts you can find me rock climbing, hiking or eating my way across the globe, exploring new countries along the way.

I'm really looking forward to starting my third season out in the Alps, joining the Fish&Pips team this year. After enjoying a great season in Méribel a few years back, I can't wait to get strapped into my board, and explore the huge area on offer once more. I hope to make your holiday just as amazing and memorable as I know my season will be!

I’ve loved cooking from a very early age when I would sit on the kitchen worktop and watch my Mum cook. Following my passion for food I have already done two seasons in the Alps and have loved every minute of them. My first skiing holiday was in Meribel when I was 7 and I cannot wait to return to this beautiful resort with Fish&Pips.
