One of the founding fathers of the health club industry, Allan has established over 100 health clubs since opening the 1st Holmes Place in 1980. Allan is passionate about the potential of business to influence positively on society and as such he continues to be a dynamic entrepreneur in his 70’s. His enthusiasm for creating aspirational brands and company cultures is as contagious as his appreciation of excellent wine.


A visionary and refreshingly unconventional CEO, Jonathan believes in blending eastern and western philosophies and practices to inspire peak performance. Calm yet competitive, Jonathan is as committed to his twice daily meditation practice as he is to winning in business and in life. A ardent promoter of holistic health and the Holmes Place mantra – enjoy the journey.


For our financial expert Xavier, the math of a balanced life is fairly simple and it’s easily found at Holmes Place. “At Holmes Place I found something I had never found before. Most companies see training as something that should be done on your personal time, but Holmes Place showed me that training should be part of our life and helped to make it happen. This inspired me to take a hard look and realize that life is not only about working but also living well.”


Being passionate about people Larissa finds Holmes Place to be the right company to be able to have a positive impact in people’s careers and lives and there is a long history to prove it. “It’s been more than 20 years since I was hired as a part-time receptionist in Chelsea. Why am I still here? Working at Holmes Place has given me the opportunity to meet people and do extraordinary things I had never dreamed I was going to be able to do. I am still here because I wake up each day thinking my work makes a difference!”


Driving a company designed to change people’s lives means inspiration and motivation walk hand in hand. The strong synergies and positive influences, from personal life and professional experience, are the right stepping stones for Doron’s strategic views. “When I started at Holmes Place I had no inkling I was to embark on a ‘life journey’ that would foremost improve my own life immeasurably; and more importantly affect that of so many others. I cannot think of a more fulfilling way for us to spend our time, nor a more positive impact we can have on society.”
