Mark and Susan Nathan
We bought the business in 2008, when it had just 4 apartments within Chalet Hastings and two small chalets.
We decided we should focus our business on delivering a great experience for customers and good value at multiple price points, we have developed the concept of tailoring your own holiday with this objective in mind.
Susan has focused on speaking with customers while Mark initially focussed on marketing, accounts, and IT systems to support the business. Now Mark is running the business overall.
Mark has over 30 years of experience in Management Consultancy, IT Consultancy, and large IT System sales. He has advised many corporations on how to re-engineer their organization using leading-edge technologies to increase sales/streamline business processes.
Mark holds a BSc(Hons) and ACGI from Imperial College. Mark now focuses on the overall management of the business, also on marketing and business development.

Susan became a full-time mother and then trained as a Yoga teacher before taking on Chalets1066. After 14 years she is now gradually handing over her work to our team.
