Our Directors

Richard Tozer

After achieving a PGDip in Hydrographic Surveying, Managing Director Richard Tozer embarked on a successful career working offshore and onshore both in an employed and freelance capacity as a Hydrographic Surveyor. He then worked as a Technical Recruiter establishing a Hydrographic Survey recruitment division for a leading offshore agency.

He then went on to develop GOSS Consultants Ltd, which became a leading agency in the hydrographic recruitment industry, which supplied quality personnel and was acquired by one of the leading global survey agencies in 2013.

His extensive experience in the hydrographic recruitment industry, and in building a business, means that when it came to launching UTM in 2016, he knew exactly where to position the company so that it would offer a superior service to clients and contractors, compared to current market offerings.

Richard has worked hard to ensure that UTM will always be a business that offers exceptional levels of support to clients and contractors, and he relishes the opportunity to develop the company in such a way that UTM becomes the go-to agency for quality personnel in their areas of expertise.

Richard genuinely values all the contractors he works with, he understands that they are an integral part of the process, as well as recognising the importance of providing support and a smooth, beneficial service to clients looking to expand their teams. 

Alex Meeks

Operations Director Alex Meeks co-founded UTM Consultants Ltd in September 2016, and has spent the last 12 months building solid business foundations in order to position UTM as a leading global offshore agency. After studying business, Alex kick-started a thriving, fast-paced business and sales working life by moving straight into a professional environment, developing a highly successful career in sales.

An opportunity arose to move into the offshore hydrographic recruitment industry, where he swiftly moved up the ranks of a leading global survey agency. During this time, Alex built an excellent reputation, gained incredibly valuable experience understanding the requirements of clients and contractors, and managed multi-million pound budgets and large teams.

Alex believes the core of UTM Consultants, and the industry as a whole, is the people that he works with, so he makes it a priority to source the best quality contractors and clients. He works hard to ensure every area of the agency is conducting business activity with integrity, transparency and honesty.

His experience means he understands where clients and contractors are let down by other agencies, therefore he is determined that his work with UTM will see them exceeding the current offerings, as UTM are genuinely interested in supporting and developing the careers of contractors. Alex knows it is essential that UTM stick to every promise they make and that they consistently deliver the highest level of service to everyone they work with.
