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

Commercial Director, Surrey
Having co-founded Fish&Pips with Holly (the 'Fish') in 2006, Philippa (the 'Pips') lives and breathes all things travel. The seed for a future in travel was sewn early, having been lucky enough to have had the most remarkable childhood full of adventures – skiing and sailing. Philippa loves her role as Commercial Director at Fish&Pips, working to find fantastic new destinations and of course her love of spreadsheets.

She’s happiest when bobbing on a boat with her sailing husband and three children in the Adriatic but she reserves the right to change her mind as she plans her next adventure! She’s very excited as Fish&Pips continues to expand to new destinations.
Holly Chandler

Holly Chandler

Director, Méribel & Alderney
Holly - the 'Fish' (her last name was Fisher before she married ski instructor Del) has spent the last 14 years yoyo-ing between the Alps and the Channel Islands! She spends the winters in Méribel with Del and their two small children - Wilf and Martha. Holly focuses her time on product development, marketing and all things foodie for both the ski and sun aspects of the business. Whilst mainly office based in the winter, she still thrives on getting to know the team, meeting the guests where possible and being out in the mountains. Out of season, both Holly and Philippa spend a great deal of time scouring the Med for their next hotel or villa and planning Fish&Pips's next business adventure. Exciting times afoot!
Blake Rose

Blake Rose

Director and Investor, West Sussex
What fun... Blake joined F&P in 2018 as a Non-Exec Director and investor to help grow this small but energetic business with a great ethos of putting the guest first, employing fabulous staff, finding new and exciting properties complimented by wonderful service. He has a background in travel, having co-founded Scott Dunn World and built it into the pre-eminent luxury travel brand in the UK before selling to PE in 2014.

Now he can think of nothing better than bombing around the slopes of Méribel with his wife, Katherine, and daughters India and Isabella, or sailing with them to Ithaca in the Ionian - all seamlessly organised by F&P. Somebody has to do the hard lifting!
Jo Arkwright

Jo Arkwright

Senior Sales Consultant, Cambridgeshire
Jo met Holly and Philippa on their first season together in Méribel back in 2004 and they very quickly became firm friends. After a couple of years managing luxury safari camps in Kenya and Zambia and armed with a lifetime of incredible memories, she came back to the UK to work as an African travel specialist.

Jo is a very keen photographer and loves everything travel - she has particularly enjoyed introducing her triplet boys to the mountains and to travel adventures in the UK and beyond. She is most happy when she’s out in the African Wilderness surrounded by incredible wildlife and rich African culture. Each African country is so different that it would be hard for her to pick a favourite!
Gemma Goodfellow

Gemma Goodfellow

Senior Sales Consultant, London
With a broad knowledge of destinations worldwide, an expansive knowledge of our destinations in Europe, and an ever expanding understanding of what our clients are looking for, Gemma enjoys spending her time looking for new hotels and experiences to add to our portfolio. A keen skier (who is married to an even keener skier!) she spends a lot of time in the Swiss Alps with her husband and two budding little skiers.

During the summer Gemma can be found on the south west coast of France as well as exploring two of her favourites, Portugal and Italy. Gemma believes that there is always the potential for trying something new as well as re-visiting old favourites. When not on the move, Gemma enjoys a spin class and can 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.
Clare Truphet

Clare Truphet

Alpine Manager, Méribel
Clare started working with Fish&Pips in 2010, looking after our Méribel chalet collection. She now oversees the Alpine Operation, which includes managing chalets, our ski hotel collection, supplier relations and our fantastic seasonal team. With no two days the same, it's the people that really make it!

A huge lover of the outdoors, no holiday would be complete without some adventure. Clare’s love of food is mostly learnt from chalet chefs from years gone by and is central to her travelling. On the bucket list are Denmark and the Faroe Islands, Argentina and South Africa. When in the mountains you can usually find Clare walking her very energetic spaniel, Scout.
Lucy Fisher

Lucy Fisher

Concierge Manager, Méribel
Lucy has lived and worked in Méribel since 2012, what she doesn’t know about the resort is not worth knowing! Her special expertise is the restaurants and bars, on and off the mountain. Lucy is on-hand to look after 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.

When not in the mountains Lucy is a fan of going to the sea, especially the Balearic Islands – sun, sand, sea! Although sharing the same (maiden) surname as Holly, they are sadly not related – but they’re yet to go through the family tree!
Flora Perrin

Flora Perrin

Sales Assistant & Concierge, London
Flora has recently joined the Fish and Pips team and is on hand to help with any of your sales and concierge queries. After spending two seasons in Meribel as a chalet girl, Flora started working in the travel industry in the UK and has never looked back.

Flora is a keen skier, who can’t wait to take her little boy, Joshua, skiing for the first time and loves to cook – she is always on the hunt for a good cookery lesson as well as a good restaurant on her travels! Having spent a lot of time recently travelling in Asia, the next place on Flora’s bucket list is St Lucia. Back in the UK, Flora is usually found chasing her two-year-old around Bishops Park on his scooter.
Lawrence Marsh

Lawrence Marsh

Resort Manager
Hi, I'm Lawrence! I've been skiing since the age of two, and have visited 40 countries on 6 continents. Once upon a time, I very nearly became a lawyer, but after University fell in love with season life and being able to pass on my passion for the mountains in Austria in 2014. After moving over the French Alps, I've worked as a Resort Manager in Méribel, Alpe D’Huez, and Les Arcs. I spend my summers working on the Med and any spare time at home in Cornwall on the golf course, cricket pitch, or blindly following the two greatest obsessions in my life: Newcastle United and Exeter Chiefs.

George Jamieson

George Jamieson

Chalet Chef
Hi! This is my 5th ski season and my third with Fish&Pips, after one in Courmayeur and one in Val D’isère. I’ve been cooking and skiing from a young age so working as a Chalet Chef combines my two passions. I can’t wait to get back out to the Alps after missing out last year! I love everything about living in the alps, from warming up with a hot chocolate in a cosy café to getting the first lift on a bluebird day!
Libby Newbery

Libby Newbery

Chalet Chef
Hi, I'm Libby! I grew up in the small town of Swindon, and knew from a young age I wanted to be a chef, so I moved to London to train with the best. After learning different techniques and exploring flavours for 5 years, I'm ready to trade in my busy City life for a season in the snow!
Luke Turley

Luke Turley

Chalet Chef
Hi, I'm Luke! This is my first winter season after working in London and Alderney for the last 5 years, so I’m incredibly excited about a new era on the slopes. Being a chef is all about taking new opportunities and, who knows what this one might bring? I’ve got a passion for food and I’m hoping to find one in skiing too! 
Yann Gaida

Yann Gaida

Hi, I'm Yann, originally from the Italian Dolomites. My passion is the outdoors - sports, the ocean, mountains - where I am at my happiest and always keen for the next challenge. I also love learning about different cuisines and wines in my spare time.
