As a student in Lyon, Simon had his first foray on the slopes in La Plagne. After graduating and enjoying a number of winters as a ski rep, he decided to stay in France working for a chalet holiday specialist. Simon joined TUI’s Chamonix team in 2004, and as Head of Tour Operations and Properties implemented the Thomson and First Choice merger for France, Switzerland and Andorra. On moving to the UK, Simon joined the Ski Commercial team, then did two years at TUI Marine as VP for Revenue Management & Fleet Planning. He returned to Ski, Lakes & Mountains as Commercial Director in late 2014.
Simon, a Mile Muncher on the slopes, spends his spare time in the many green areas around Kingston with his family, daydreaming of the mountains and planning a return to the snow.
