Michael Collins


Michael is our Managing Director. Having worked in the events industry for the past 15 years starting onsite, Michael has a broad and deep understanding of the sector. In 2009 he founded Urban Crew with the key objective of providing a first class and value added service to its clients and retaining the best crew in the industry. “Today we have a reputation of delivering outstanding support to our clients and we continuously strive to work closer with them and improve all the time.”
On a personal level if not at work Michael will most likely be out riding his bike, running or training for his next endurance adventure or an Ironman event. Spending time with family and friends is high on his priority list and is always up for a good cup of coffee or glass of wine.

Ryan Wepener


Ryan is our Operations Director. He got into the events crewing industry purely by chance and after doing his first 02:00 he was hooked! He joined the industry in 2005 where he started out as a general crew member and worked his way into a management role before the exciting opportunity presented itself in 2009 to join forces with Michael and Andrew to set up Urban Crew Ltd.
Outside of work Ryan enjoys keeping fit and active, travelling, quality time with friends, beers in the sunshine and whilst he may not admit it, loves to dance to a tune or two.

Andrew Jakins


Andrew is our Finance Director. Prior to Urban Crew Andrew spent seven years in the city working in investment banking specialising in corporate finance. He is a qualified Chartered Accountant.
Co-founded Urban Crew with Michael and Ryan in 2009 with the responsibility of looking after the business finances. He is also closely involved with our business development, project and strategic planning. Andrew loves spending time with his family and whenever time allows getting into a river to do some fly-fishing.

Brad Wepener
