Our core team

Marie Hancock

Marie is a chartered civil engineer. Prior to MHTC she worked with Hampshire County Council as a graduate engineer and in Transport Policy and the OECD in Paris. She continues to enjoy the challenges of organising surveys and analysing their results.

When not in the office (or in the kitchen or playing taxi), Marie is a keen open water swimmer.
Tim Hancock

Tim is a land surveyor with a background in systems development. Prior to MHTC he worked for Ordnance Survey in the UK and internationally and for the Department of Lands in Brisbane. He retains a keen interest in mapping and GIS.

Swimming faster (and further) than his children is, unfortunately, a distant memory for Tim. When he is not reminiscing, he gets involved with FOSS4G.
Sue Salthouse

Sue is our "touring" supervisor and travels extensively across the UK and Ireland. She is based just north of Edinburgh in Dunfermline and has been with MHTC since 2013. Prior to this she was responsible for training naval officers for the Merchant Navy.

When she is not on the road, Sue looks after an Explorer Scouts group near Dunfermline. She has clocked up a good number of jamborees from Japan to Ecuador as well as regular jaunts to Sweden for skiing.
James Bowler

James is our London area supervisor. He has worked within MHTC since 2017. Prior to MHTC, he enjoyed the challenge of primary school teaching within the London area and his native Melbourne.

James is our local film and music critic and gets to local venues whenever he can.

Our survey team

Equally important are our dedicated survey staff. They are a diverse group of people. The common thread is that they are passionate about getting the job done properly.

Since 2002 we have recruited over 1,000 people for surveys in different parts of the country. Our team includes many different types of people from students looking for work experience to retired people looking for something to do. We recruit people who enjoy collecting data and are willing to try something a little different. We work irregular hours and outdoors in all weathers sometimes with long hours and early starts.
