Our people

CMC Associates are a group of creative, intelligent, well–respected professionals who excel in the heritage sector.

The core team consists of fifteen professionals who have been working together on exhibitions since 1994. The key is enjoying the work and the team put their all into every project. As a result CMC build good relationships with clients.

CMC’s success is based on the experience and attitude of its people. We combine trusted academic expertise with the best technical, design and management skills.

Working collaboratively with others is a key skill that CMC employ to make their work stand out. Over the past few years we have worked closely with Studio SPNomad Exhibitions, Abound Design and GBDM as four of our strongest design partnerships. More recently our partnerships in Australia have born fruit with a new strategic consultancy service SBG Advisory establishing a close working relationship with CMC.

I found working with CMC an absolute pleasure. Their understanding and development of the concept brief was outstanding. Detailed research brought integrity to the exhibition content and the overall interpretive approach, resulting in an enhancement of our initial project expectation. A great team to work with.
