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 Truphet

Clare Truphet

Alpine Manager, Méribel
Having been with Fish&Pips since 2010 Clare works with Holly and Philippa to keep things running smoothly in resort from recruiting our seasonal team and running our training programme to managing our properties and working with all our lovely suppliers. 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.

Gemma, a fellow enthusiast for the mountains, is based in the UK where she is on hand to help you with all your sales enquiries. 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. Back in the UK, Gemma enjoys a good spin class and can generally be found chasing the children and dog around Barnes common.
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.
Chris Fry

Chris Fry

Resort Manager
After leaving the city I returned to 'my home' out in the alps last winter and I am extremely excited to head out to Meribel again, joining the Fish&Pips team this year. I love all things skiing and snowboarding from the days on the mountain to the cosy evenings you can come back to with great food (and maybe some wine). I will be working flat out to ensure you have the best time and share my love for the alpine lifestyle.
Off the slopes in my downtime you will probably find me enjoying the other fruits Meribel has to offer such as great music, local events and cheese... lots of cheese. This winter is going to be one to remember, see you out there!

Resort Support
Going in to my second season with F&P I hope to see some familiar faces again in the chalets! Really looking forward to using my strengths to support the team across the board, and of course get some slope time in. You’ll often find me hiking up hills or hot chocolate in hand at the Lodge du Village.

Back home I work as a builder although this summer has been spent travelling Asia. I look forward to meeting the new team and seeing last year's guys again. See you all soon

Coming from Wales via Australia, I'm excited to be spending this coming season in the Alps with Fish&Pips. I'm a keen skiier and was heavily involved in university snowsports prior to my move to Australia where I've been working in the Music industry for the past 7 years. In my free time I'm generally found in the kitchen and can talk about food & drink for hours on end!

Having just graduated from Imperial, I’m ridiculously keen to get back on the mountains for my second season. I learnt to ski at the age of 3 and have been a big fan ever since. I can’t wait to meet the Fish&Pips team, get stuck in and start hosting.

Chalet Chef
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 three seasons in the Alps and have loved every minute of them. This will be my second season with Fish&Pips and I cannot wait to return to Meribel.

My Nan taught me how to bake and from there my love for food has grown. I love everything about food from cooking to eating it but most importantly learning everything there is to know. I can't wait to embark on a new adventure after being a chef in London with Fish&Pips.

Hi, this will be my 3rd season with Fish&Pips. I have been a chef now for over 15 years, although a perhaps mediocre snowboarder (we here at F&P don't agree with that last part - Kim's ace!). I am looking forward to starting this his new season and meeting you all out in resort
