Our People

Dave Cullen

Dave Cullen
Co-founder/ Managing Director

As co-founder and Managing Director, Dave continues to drive the agency forward with impressive year-on-year growth. Shaping CMSourcing’s fresh approach to sourcing personnel, he’s built a team that doesn’t just buy into the agency ethos, but also laugh at his dad jokes (which is handy, because his kids don’t). While his background in the geophysical survey sector as a Marine Geophysicist also doesn’t impress the kids much, it’s part of the reason that has made CMSourcing such a credible choice for clients and contractors.

Mike McLean
Co-founder/ Operations Director

After 10 years of working across a vast number of geophysical projects as a Survey Engineer, Mike co-founded CMSourcing knowing exactly what was needed to close the gap between clients and contractors. In his role as Operations Director, he’s been helping to connect people offshore with transparency and integrity ever since. Elsewhere, in his role as dad, you’ll find him - come rain or shine - driving his boys to football on Saturday mornings. And when he doesn’t have to have the pair of them in the back, you’ll find him on the back of his motorbike.

Molly Redstone
Operations Manager

After rising through the ranks since her arrival in 2018, Molly now manages the operations department, ensuring her team of client managers live up to her very high standards. With a background in logistics and personnel support - and a range of our highest value clients in the survey market on her books - it’s safe to say that building relationships is Molly’s speciality. When not driving the team, she enjoys driving to the beach with Ralph the beagle for a good long walk in the sand.

Brad Hassall
Senior Client Manager

A client manager who prefers the pressure of life at sea, than the pressure of picking the office playlist, Brad came to CMSourcing off the back of 7 years operating sonar onboard submarines in the Royal Navy. Building strong connections and honest lines of communications were his forte during life under the Arctic ice; now it’s his strength in the temperature-controlled climates of the CMSourcing office. Just don’t ask him to pick the next song.

Gary Snihur
Senior Client Manager

Gary joined CMSourcing in January 2022 as a client manager. He uses his offshore operational and training experience - from his 12 years in the Royal Marines - to facilitate and support contractors and clients alike. Since swapping HMS Ocean for the slightly quieter Somerset way of life, he revels in spending time with his wife, kids and Jax the dog - and occasionally revels in being a Liverpool fan.

Jess Kelly
Operations Assistant

Joining our expanding team in 2023, Jess effortlessly supports our client managers with their daily administrative tasks. With over 7 years of experience as an operations coordinator, Jess knows the intricacies of offshore contracts and supplier management like the backs of both of her hands.

Katelyn Quantick
Operations Assistant

Katelyn joined CMSourcing in June 2024 as operation assistant, supporting our client managers and their contractors. Fresh from university Katelyn has a passion for environmental sciences. With her energy, discipline and drive, she's slotted right in. A thirst for knowledge, and a pint - the perfect combination here at CMSourcing!

Kelly Thomas
Finance Manager

Heading up the finance department, Kelly has excelled in her role for 5 years and counting. And it’s no surprise. Before adding CMSourcing to her CV, she’d gained a huge understanding of both practice and industry accounting in the 23 years since leaving college. Away from the spreadsheets, you’ll find her with her head in the sheets of a good thriller.

Rachel Merrigan
Lead Finance Assistant

As Kelly’s sidekick in the finance department, Rachel provides full accounting support. Slotting seamlessly into the role in March 2023, she’s been keeping the books ticking and the figures flowing ever since. Depending on the weather, you’ll either find her in a country pub or on a sun lounger. Or a sun lounger in a country pub if she can’t make up her mind.

Renee Adams
Finance Administrator

Working alongside Rachel and Kelly in our dedicated finance team, Renee meticulously maintains CMSourcing's bookkeeping to ensure efficiency for our contractors, clients, and suppliers. Her extensive experience, acquired from previous roles in Zimbabwe, has given her the title of fountain (well, source) of all knowledge.

Poppy Hunt
Compliance Officer

Since completing an advanced certificate in compliance, Poppy has had 8 years of practical experience across a number of different sectors. You’ll find the story of her first few months at CMSourcing in the Wikipedia page for the phrase ‘hit the ground running’. There is one thing that Poppy has always struggled to make comply though… Keith, her Dachshund.

Kay Jefferies
Marketing Executive

Kay joined CMSourcing in 2023 to lead the in-house marketing charge. She’s been the driving force behind a brand refresh, the new website (we might be biased, but we love it) and updated collateral for every nook and cranny she could shake a CMSourcing stick at. On Mondays, she deals with her most demanding clients (her kids) like a pro at home, but the rest of the week you can find her in the office running the social media, events and advertising campaigns.
