Danny has been working in the student snowsports industry for a decade, graduating from the University of Leeds in 2002 and immediately joining Off the Piste, where he remained until September 2011. He became Managing Director of Off the Piste in 2005 and, following their acquisition by TUI in 2008, was appointed MD of TUI Student Skiing, where he managed both of their student ski brands: Ski Alpine and Off the Piste.
Danny set up NUCO as he was keen to break free from the corporate world and re-establish himself as the leading independent player in the winter sports market. With NUCO he can refocus his talents back onto snowsports and into doing what he has always done best: organising the best run ski holidays and events available to the market. Quite simply, no one else in the industry can match Danny's knowledge and experience of operating group trips to the Alps.
NUCO's man in the Alps, Cedric lives with his fiancé in Bourg Saint Maurice, the valley town to Tignes and Val d'Isere. Cedric has been working in the ski industry since 2004, leaving his position as Operations Manager at TUI Student Skiing (Off the Piste and SkiAlpine) in March 2012 to join NUCO.
Cedric has extremely strong and long-standing relationships with all the key French suppliers, and no one else in the industry has the knowledge and capabilities that Cedric brings to the table. NUCO is extremely pleased to have him as a key part of the team!
After a well-earned break, Tom returns to the snowsports world full of energy and ready to make an impact. After his presidency of Reading Snowsports, Tom started repping for Off the Piste back in 2005, where he left as Sales Manager in February 2012.
Having spent over a year out of his last four in the Alps, he brings with him a wealth of hands-on experience and excellent personal relationships in all the major resorts. Always keen to get out there, Tom spends as much time as he can in the Alps and is always on hand to help with anything that needs attention. Tom will be your main point on contact for anything sales, booking system, aprés ski or in-resort related.
After graduating from the infamous UCLAN in 2004 where he was the Ski Club President, Sam spent a gruelling 20 week season in the Alps for the then 'On The Piste Travel' before joining OTP full time in September 2005.
Already in his career Sam has worked for a string of travel companies including Gold Medal, Airline Network, On The Beach and Off The Piste. This wide range of roles combined with his 9 years' on-the-ground experience in the student snowsports industry means he brings an abundance of knowledge to the NUCO management team.
With a love of Excel spreadsheets, printed Dymo labels and his head torch, Sam joined NUCO in September 2012 and heads up all things logistics including UK Travel and the all-important NUCO Rep Team. He is also blessed with the task of making sure everyone in the office and resort are as organised as possible.
Stephen has worked with the NUCO team developing the booking system and website since the very beginning, joining NUCO after graduating from Oxford University in 2012. A student skiing veteran, he has three years' experience on the committee of Varsity Trip, the mammoth Oxford and Cambridge ski trip, and a track record of tearing through the websites of societies big and small.
With experience from both sides of the picture, he knows as well as anyone what makes groups tick, and how to ensure everyone on your trip has the smoothest and easiest ride through NUCO's online empire, from signup to signoff.
After a very successful Sales and Logistics internship in 2011/12, Charlie graduates from MMU in May 2013 with a top notch Events Management degree and sacks fulls of passion, enthusiasm and hands-on student snowsports experience. This, coupled with numerous weeks head-repping for NUCO in the 2012/2013 season, gives her the best possible backing to jump head first into her new role as Sales Assistant at NUCO HQ.
Charlie knows a huge amount about the groups we work with; what makes them tick, and above all what ingredients make up a great week in the Alps. She will be working alongside Tom liaising with group leaders from the word go, and dealing with everyday enquiries from all our wonderful passengers. As the first girl in the office she's ready to hit the road running as part of the summer sales tour and is definitely going to give the boys a run for their money!
Having been part of the wakeboarding crew at On the Pond 2010, Scottie jumped straight into the snowsports industry and has been neck-deep ever since. From 2010-12 Scottie repped more weeks for Off the Piste than any other rep, quickly becoming a head rep and ensuring the smooth running of trips from 20 to 400 people. His energetic, dedicated and nothing's-too-much-trouble attitude has made him a favourite amongst many groups and resort suppliers.
Scottie will be looking after promo material, reps and logistics for all our groups; and he'll be attending all the freshers fairs and launch parties, so make sure you say hello or ask any questions you may have about your holiday.
