Club Med has announced the appointment of Nicolas Bresch as the new Managing Director, across the UK and Nordics. He succeeds Estelle Giraudeau, who has held the position for almost nine years.
Bresch will step into the new role from 5th September 2022 and will continue to lead the UK and Nordic market alongside a team of 40 who will be reporting directly into him. In addition to leading the UK and Nordic business, Bresch will be immediately focused on the impending winter season, which sees the brand’s first Exclusive Collection resort open in Val D’Isere as well as a brand new 4-Trident resort in Tignes.
Bresch first joined Club Med in 2014 where he played a pivotal role within the pricing team, before moving to the Asia Pacific (APAC) team in Shanghai in 2016, where he helped to launch the Club Med Joyview range. In 2020, Nicolas joined the EAF (Europe & Africa) Marketing department in Paris as Head of Data Analytics and Business Intelligence, where he was instrumental in the management of commercial decisions during the Covid period.
More recently, Bresch moved to London to become the Marketing Director for Northern Europe (UK, Scandinavia and Germany). In this role, he focused on the brand’s upscaling strategy and ambitious growth within these markets, working alongside the former Managing Director for the UK, Nordics and Germany, Estelle Giraudeau.
Speaking of his new role, Nicolas Bresch commented, “I am delighted to start a new role and chapter within the Club Med business, having been with Club Med for just over eight years now. I’m looking forward to continuing to drive the business forward with our ambitious expansion plans on sun and snow destinations, as well as ensuring that we are continuing to provide our customers and travel agent partners with the high level of service they have come to expect from us.”
