Our Meribel team
Our resort staff members are key to the enjoyment of your holiday. So we spend a lot of time recruiting people who are able to deliver our high standards and meet our guests’ expectations.
We pride ourselves on offering a genuine and intuitive service. Our staff are enthusiastic, hard-working and professional people. We take pride not only in making sure that our guests have the best possible skiing holiday, but also in being a great company to work for. We hire people based on their skills, experience and attitude and expect the highest standards of work from them.
Davina, Resort Manager
Davina’s career in the hospitality industry has seen her working in hotels in Greece, London and Edinburgh as well as completing five winter seasons in the Alps, including Méribel. She has also spent time working in the ski industry in the UK, with roles in marketing and ski holiday sales.
Davina will return to the Meriski team this season as our Resort Manager.
Alun, Resort Manager
After studying a Business Management degree at Southampton Solent University, which was particularly focused on the Travel and Tourism industry, Alun decided to take a 'year' out.
Alun’s year out began with windsurfing for six months in Greece before taking to the slopes and joining the Meriski team as a driver, where he quickly became hooked to both the slopes and beautiful surroundings, as well as to working in such a diverse fast paced environment.
Alun then completed a further two seasons with us as Head Driver and we are now delighted to welcome him back for his fifth season with us, now as Resort Manager, alongside Davina.
Peter, Head of Transport
After successfully running a Transport Company in the North East of England for over 40 years, Peter is returning to Meriski for his third season as Transport Manager. Having bought his own house in Méribel over 15 years ago, Peter has an insightful knowledge of the region and many of the locals!
Peter will oversee our fleet of Drivers, ensuring that both our in-resort driver and airport transfer services run smoothly and efficiently. You may even see him walking his lovely Border Terrier, Digger!
Richard, Head Chef
After several years of working with some of the UK’s top chefs in a bid to expand on his talent and knowledge, Richard’s second passion, skiing, naturally led him to completing a successful season with Meriski.
Enjoying his first season based in Impala Lodge, Richard was motivated by the challenges of cooking at altitude and incorporating the ever-changing available ingredients into his menus, advancing his expertise. When Richard is not on the slopes, you can expect to find him sampling the dishes of some of Meribel’s restaurants – L’Igloo being a firm favourite!
We are excited that Richard will be returning for his third season as our Head Chef, to maintain and expand on the culinary experiences that our guests receive.
Nadine, Chalet Manager
Nadine has worked her way up the Front of House ladder both in the UK and overseas during the past few years. She began her seasonal career as a Chalet Host in a luxury property, where she learned first hand how rewarding the job can be.
She then moved into a training role, nurturing and supporting Hosts and Waiting staff to achieve to the best of their ability and has developed a keen passion for delivering bespoke, top level service.
Nadine returns this year for her second season with Meriski as Senior Chalet Manager.
