The Chalets1066 team - Discover the members of Chalets1066
Mark and Susan Nathan
Mark and Susan bought the business in 2008, when it had just 4 apartments, at the time it was just Chalet Hastings and 2 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 focussed on speaking with customers while Mark has focussed on marketing, accounts and IT systems to support the business.
Mark has over 30 years experience in Management Consultancy, Consultancy and IT System sales. He has advised many corporations on how to re-engineer their business using leading edge technologies to increase sales/streamline processes. He holds a BSc(Hons) and ACGI from Imperial College. Mark focusses on marketing and business management. Susan previously was a Yoga Teacher, mother to their three children. Susan started her career in the Civil Service and then moved to a Building Society - both in finance/administration roles.
Ben started his career in the Royal Marines, where he served in Afghanistan and Sierra Leone and undertook some challenging missions including leading a team to transport critical equipment across Afghanistan.
He decided to leave the Royal Marines in 2010 and started his training to be a ski instructor. He is now qualified to ISIA level and has also worked in the business in the summer and some ski seasons.
Outside of the ski season, up to 2017, Ben usually worked for DHL, where he managed up to 200 people at Heathrow airport and whilst DHL wanted to keep him permanently, he could not keep away from the mountains and Les Gets.
For ski season 2019-20, Ben will be managing operations at Chalets 1066, he has proven skills in managing teams of people and delivering services where timescales are critical.
Outside of work, Ben spends his time - either in the gym, cycling, running or hiking up a mountain.

He is part of 1066's meet and greet team and will put you at ease regarding any questions you might have, from the nearest bus stops and scheduling to piste orientation and nearest chairlift. When he's not hitting powder on his board he will be found taking care of any maintenance issues that pop up.
