Founder and Director of Ski Verbier ExclusiveDavid has been in the ski chalet business in Verbier since 1992, when he founded Ski Verbier with just a single chalet. As a business graduate, trained chef and avid skier since the age of four, David had a passion for the mountains and felt strongly that the all-inclusive chalet holiday concept could be improved beyond all recognition.
Over the years, David built Ski Verbier into the leading quality chalet operator in Verbier, and one of the very best in the world. The company's enviable reputation was built around the professionalism and friendliness of its staff.
By the time David sold Ski Verbier in 2005, the business had seventeen chalets, 60 employees and occupancy levels consistently above 90%, with the vast majority of clients either being repeat or recommended through word of mouth. David decided to purchase a hotel in Verbier with the proceeds of the sale and in 2010 he undertook a major refurbishment of the hotel. No.14 Verbier has been transformed into a stunning chalet sleeping up to 26 pampered guests with indoor pool and spa.
In 2009 David set up Verbier Exclusive with Tom Avery and quickly built up an impressive portfolio of 7 exclusive chalets. In 2014 an opportunity arose to buy back Ski Verbier which David jumped at. After restructuring the business, Ski Verbier Exclusive was formed to showcase all 17 properties.
David has four children and lives with his wife Annabel in the Cotswolds. All his children have learnt to ski in Verbier and will soon be catching their Daddy up!
