Finance and Admin Director
Like the rest of the team, Anne-Isabelle Debreu-Barberet is literally fascinated by La Mainaz's setting – "a majestic, unique location"! Likewise, the finance & admin director highlights the team spirit that prevails at La Mainaz: she loves the feeling of having a common goal and working together to reach it. Her wish? That guests staying at La Mainaz experience this warmth and friendliness and that they feel at home!
Alain Brunier has been the head of the Geneva Hotel School since 2005, after managing a host of prestigious establishments: the Impérial Palace when it opened, Les Airelles in Courchevel, Domaine de Divonne, which was awarded a Michelin star in 1995… he therefore knows the region well and has been frequenting La Mainaz for many years. He therefore enthusiastically agreed to advise the new owners when they decided to "wake Sleeping Beauty"! His role? To assist them with the strategic and organisational aspects.
Today, on the strength of a new team – he actively participated in its recruitment – La Mainaz can write a new chapter in its story. Alain Brunier loves the exceptional location and size of the establishment. He also trusts "the alchemy between the staff's professionalism and the owners' enthusiasm, which works wonders." His ambition for La Mainaz: "To immediately position it among the benchmark establishments for the Greater Geneva area. Given its exceptional location as a balcony over Lake Geneva and the Mont Blanc, on the edge of the Haut Jura Regional National Park, the quality of the renovations, the excellence of its cuisine and the know-how of the hosts, I am sure that La Mainaz will quickly become a must-visit destination and a key player in Geneva and Jura tourism."
Commercial & Hotel Services Director
A family project championed by an extremely dynamic professional team in an EXTRAORDINARY setting. That's how Thomas Delécolle explains his role in the La Mainaz adventure. Add a deep affinity for human relations (he was a salesperson), drive and a shared ambition. When you ask our Commercial & Hotel Services Director his vision for La Mainaz in a year's time, he quite naturally replies: "That it's the most popular destination among Genevans for dining or staying with friends."
