We’re excited to introduce the newest members of our growing team: Kevin Barry and David Fernandez. Joining us as Account Executives, both Kevin and David are strong believers in the CM Access philosophy that great work comes from great relationships. They’re looking forward to working with you to find the perfect fit for your creative, marketing and interactive needs.
Kevin is a driven sales professional whose upbeat, positive personality draws you in. Building relationships is his specialty and he’s excited to put his talent to work connecting clients with just the right candidates. Kevin is passionate about growing his clients’ businesses and has eight years of experience working with professionals at all levels. Kevin has a B.S. in Marketing.
Not just business, it’s personal… I play golf, hockey and fish, and enjoy cooking something weird I’ve never eaten before. A fun fact about me is that I’m the only person I know who has never been pulled over while driving a car. Must be luck!
David’s rapport building and passion for the arts make him a perfect fit for the CM Access team. His interest in recruitment began in college while working in Alumni Relations, where he honed his outreach and relationship building skills. During a stint in an art gallery, David developed his eye for creativity. When David experienced the “CM Access difference” during his own job hunt, he knew that it was the perfect place to put his skills and interests to use, helping clients and talent succeed. David has a B.S. in Philosophy and History.
Not just business, it’s personal… I’m interested in many things including the arts, philosophy and sports. I’m an avid basketball and tennis player, and full time supporter of Detroit sports. Go Pistons!

Kristin is passionate about people. As Director of CM Access, she loves leading her team’s success, as well as that of clients and candidates. Committed to what’s best for the people she works with, no one is treated as a commodity. Kristin is fascinated by learning about the twists and turns in people’s career paths, leading them to where they are today.
Kristin embraces a customized, personal approach to building partnerships. She began her career in sales as an account executive for a boutique graphic arts representation agency. Her dedication to providing top-notch service to clients built the company’s reputation and doubled its revenue and size during her tenure. In 1996 Kristin’s entrepreneurial drive led her to co-found CM Access with Inga Wennik (then Wennik&Motta). Kristin attributes her drive to a career in sales, which shaped her carpe diem attitude toward business. Her approach to sales, which she applies to running a business, is the belief that, “The greatest risk is not acting on your hunches and failing to follow your dreams.”
Joulé Inc., a specialized, regional staffing organization, purchased the firm in 2003, providing the resources needed for growth. Kristin was a recipient of Boston Business Journal’s “40 Under 40 Award” in 2001 and is a graduate of Bentley College with a B.S. in Marketing.
Kristin enjoys spending time skiing and hiking with her family and in a quiet moment she also enjoys a good fiction book.

CM Access takes a personal approach to recruiting and placing talented creative, marketing and interactive professionals in contract, project and full-time positions. Our focus on the personal touch is the CM Access Difference. So what better way to extend our personal touch than ensuring you all get to know each member of the CM Access team? You might have worked with only one recruiter, but we have quite a few talented faces hard at work in the CM Access office. We’re rolling out a “Meet the Team” series, bringing you a new team member each week to give you an opportunity to meet the full crew!
We’re kicking off the series with staffing veteran Lisa Manning, Lead Career Advocate. Lisa just had a great month – out of the entire office, she placed the most candidates with jobs!
Lisa’s nearly 15 years of sales and recruitment experience in creative and interactive have made her a pro in career counseling and client relationship development. As Lead Career Advocate at CM Access, she pursues and meets New England’s top talent, providing career guidance and coaching while developing professional relationships that last. A go-getter, she is constantly networking and meeting talented designers, writers, web designers, and marketing professionals. She seeks out new clients and enjoys understanding each company’s culture and unique opportunities. Lisa’s favorite “staffing success” story is a placement that lasted a year, when it had originally been contracted for just one week.
Outside the office, Lisa is happily married and mother of two beautiful boys. She loves spending time with her family, working out, biking and swimming.
