Primary Team Contacts


Chris Brock   

Chris has worked at the highest level of island government in strategic planning, economics, tourism & hospitality, and utility services.  He is attributed to the origination and subsequent adoption of many successful and practicable initiatives covering economic strategy, land use planning, population management, tourism development, and statistical analysis.


In the private sector, Chris pioneered a unique research capability which not only benchmarked economic, social and environmental issues in islands around the world but also identified best practice in many areas.


Market research was a key component in the portfolio of workstreams and clients were drawn from a wide range of Jersey, Guernsey and Isle of Man economic and social sectors including: Retail, Utilities, Tourism & Hospitality, Financial Services, the Media, Health and Education.  This work has further enhanced his already extensive island experience and knowledge base.


Chris is a Member of the Royal Institute of International Affairs - Chatham House.

Mariessa Fossey

Our emphasis is always working with (rather than for) our clients and, therefore, Mariessa's primary focus is to ensure that excellent client-facing relationships are always the first priority. 

Mariessa has held a number of high-level administrative roles in a wide range of organisations.  She has always delivered projects on time and on budget with client needs and expectations being met at all times.  

Ongoing communication with government departments and the private sector is also a crucial aspect of Mariessa’s responsibilities in terms of keeping pace with ever-changing demands globally.  This has never been more important than at the present time.

Associate Resources

Depending upon particular project requirements, we are able to draw on a wide range of Associate Consultants with expertise in Economic and Financial Analysis, Information Technology, the Environment, Transport, Health, and Education.
