CHARLIE CHARLESWORTH - FOUNDER AND CEO

 

Charlie created Haute Pursuit in 2005 after seeing a gap in the market for corporate ski weekends. The company has since grown into one of the leading event management and team buidling providers in the Northern Alps.

 

Prior to moving to the Alps, Charlie had a succesful career in the City of London, working in the world of finance.

 

Charlie has managed and hosted a broad range of events across Europe and knows the Alps particularly well. His expertise lies in the incentive travel arena, as well as developing new markets, rewards experiences and exploring emerging destinations.

Originally from Sweden, where she attended art school, Anna has been living in Chamonix, France, for more than 20 years, where she has amassed in-depth knowledge of the local hospitality and events market.

 

Upon meeting the founder of international agency Collaborative Art, Steph Fonteyn, Anna was inspired to become a licensed facilitator of the directional and creative team building events devised by Collaborative Art, offering artistic team-building projects that “join the dots between the arts and the business worlds” using painting and drawing - attendees bring their teams closer together while expressing themselves creatively in a work environment.
