Cathie hires new Cables Lead as part of UK growth

Gareth Ellis - Cathie Offshore Cables Lead

Following two years of record growth, offshore geoscience and geotechnical engineering consultancy, Cathie, has recently significantly expanded its business based in Newcastle upon Tyne and continues to grow its London based team. Taking over a new, bespoke office space, the company has doubled the size of its team of experts in Newcastle since 2018.

As part of this growth, Cathie has recently appointed a Senior Engineer and Cables Lead, Gareth Ellis (pictured) to the Newcastle team.

With over 20 years’ experience in project management and engineering in the global offshore industry, Ellis brings a wealth of knowledge to the business. Having spent a number of years of his career as a Cables Package Manager for several developers, and formerly as Project Manager and Engineer on numerous subsea installation projects, Ellis’ role at Cathie will be to enhance and develop Cathie’s cable construction management capabilities, from development and contract stage, through to managing the supply and offshore installation.

Robin Comrie, Managing Director commented, “Having contracted Gareth before as a cable installation and trenching consultant, we are delighted to have him on board permanently. His offshore cables package management experience will be vital in Cathie’s ambition to expand the cable services we offer our clients as part of our mission to deliver ‘Expertise, seabed and below’.”
