Below Rowena speaks to europeansnowsport.com about her new role and the coming winter.
Q/ What was your background before ES?
A/ I worked in consultancy firms in London for a total of 10 years before starting ski seasons but having been on the slopes since my 3rd birthday I was keen to spend more time in the Alps. One season is never enough and before I knew it I had completed 8 fantastic seasons in Zermatt and finished both my BASI ISTD and Swiss patente.
Q/ Why did you decide to join ES?
A/ European Snowsport has moved from strength to strength in the last few years and with an established and enthusiastic team it felt like the obvious move for me. I look forward to taking ES to the next level.
Q/ What plans do you have for ES?
A/ I hope to build on the existing excellent reputation of ES by training and motivating staff, constantly looking for new ways to build our customer base and ensuring we provide the best all-round service to our clients. I want us to be the best school in the Alps, both for instructors and clients!
Q/ What do you think of the team at ES?
A/ The team has an excellent array of skills and experience, not just in skiing, but also in languages, personal skills and the ability to atune lessons exactly to the learner’s requirements. I look forward to working with all of them very much.
