About Vanessa


Vanessa Strand - Founder

I’m originally from Oxford in the UK. I worked in television and film production in the early years of my career, but my love for new experiences meant that I always jumped at the chance to travel. This was how I landed in Verbier 15 years ago and the Alpine town became my home and primary base for work.


I have over 19 years experience in luxury hospitality. I’ve worked extensively as an independent event manager and love the challenge of the impossible. I have worked all over the world in various hospitality and event management roles, these have included being the Deputy General Manager of a hotel complex in the alps, consisting of multiple bars, a nightclub and restaurant. I was a Manager at Sir Richard Branson’s Lodge in Verbier in the Swiss Alps. I worked as the Hospitality Manager for the Formula 1 Ferrari Team while following the F1 circuit and I’ve also worked as a core member of the team who stage the annual Polaris Music Festival held in Verbier, Switzerland.  


I love to create amazing, unforgettable experiences and go the extra mile in whatever I do. I believe it’s the little extras that make a large difference!
