Fathom are a group of engineers who love what we do.
The founding team first worked together on a successful marine project in 2015, and kept in touch as we followed different paths, gained diverse experiences and focused on our individual specialities.
In 2018 we got together again to discuss the good, bad and ugly of engineering projects and concluded that by combining our own unique blend of skills and experience, we can do it better – so we set to work.
Later that year we founded Fathom Group Ltd with the vision of creating an engineering business to challenge the status quo in engineering design and analysis through a leaner and more personal service model.
Richard has over 15 years oil & gas experience across project management and multi-discipline design roles delivering projects for Operators and Tier 1 contractors such as BP, Helix ESG, Saipem and Transocean. Richard draws from this experience across project management, design engineering and hands-on roles to offer a rounded and holistic approach to all Fathom projects. Richard has a strong focus on customer engagement and an attention for detail to leave no stone unturned.
Krzysztof’s technical leadership comes from his experience as lead engineer on a diverse portfolio of offshore, marine and subsea projects. These projects have ranged from intricate tooling and machinery design up to large subsea structures in excess of 1600t. He has a great depth of knowledge in the design, analysis and validation of subsea structures including structural integrity, operability, joint design, fatigue, transit studies and more. Krzysztof’s fundamental understanding of engineering principles, combined with his passion for engineering software, drives the constant evolution of Fathom’s engineering methods and the development of our in-house software to solve complex engineering problems.
Jacek is passionate about utilising Computer Science for the optimisation of engineering methods. His understanding of engineering principles and FEA methods, combined with his experience in data analysis, allows him to identify bottlenecks and implement relevant automation strategies to improve the efficiency of complex engineering analysis tasks. Jacek holds a BEng in Power Engineering (Fluid Flow Machinery), MSc. in Subsea engineering and is currently pursuing second MSc in Computer Science with Data Analytics.
Anna is an experienced industrial engineer and academic and is currently studying her PhD at the University of Technology in Warsaw – and forms in important bridge for us between industry and academia. She is passionate about system dynamics with a particular focus on marine and offshore engineering. She is an experienced Python programmer and helps to develop our efficient in-house methods and numerical modelling solutions. Anna has co-authored engineering papers for noted scientific journals including a combined paper with Fathom published in Ocean Engineering titled the ‘Proposal of the 3-DOF model as an approach to modelling offshore lifting dynamics’. She has been recognised as a technical authority in this area and has since been part of the review panel for Ocean Engineering.
Joining us in 2022 with 34 years of experience covering the energy sectors and offshore technologies Russell is a fantastic addition to our team. Russell has supported many subsea projects oriented on high end analysis of safety critical systems including subsea drilling and completions and intervention systems. His experience adds strength and depth to our portfolio, as he supports Fathoms innovations for offshore renewables and asset life extension.
Holly brings her engineering experience and expertise to the team which she has developed since graduating with a BEng in Mechanical Engineering at Lancaster University. With a passion for renewable and clean energy technologies, she is an ideal fit for great engineering scopes Fathom have been awarded in this sector. Holly is a dynamic engineer with ambitions to create a more sustainable world by applying her knowledge of offshore design & analysis and further by innovating with Fathoms software development team.
