Stephanie Asplin
Founder & Joint Managing Director


With a background in Children’s and Live TV, Stephanie’s credits include Ministry of Mayhem and Richard & Judy.

Inspired to start her own freelance agency in late 2005, The Crewing Company was incorporated in early 2006 and Steph now owns one of the UKs most respected employment agencies for the creative industries.

Steph is Deputy Chair of the Skillset Facilities Skills Council, is listed in the Who’s Who of Britain’s Young Business Leaders, is a mum of two boys and used to host her own breakfast show on Radio Caroline.

Stuart Hatton
Joint Managing Director


After a brief career as a door to door salesman and an even briefer career trying to become a rock star, Stuart spent six years working in the petrochemical industry, two of these running his own consultancy business.

In 2006 Stuart helped Steph to launch The Crewing Company and in late 2007 joined as full time joint Managing Director.

For Stuart, customer service is paramount and his straightforward and honest approach to recruitment is refreshing for both customers and candidates alike.

Matthew Smith
Finance Manager


Having worked in recruitment for over ten years, across a variety of different sectors, Matt brings with him a wealth of financial experience – excuse the pun!

He is a part qualified accountant and is continuing his studies alongside his role of leading the TCC finance team.

A keen traveller who likes to experience different countries and cultures, the destinations on Matt’s bucket list are being ticked off one by one. Next stop, Bora Bora! (hopefully!)

Charlotte Orr
Lead Consultant


Charlotte joined us in May 2012 as Bookings Assistant and by January 2014 was managing our bookings team!

Her previous recruitment experience, incredible organisation and exceptional customer service make her the perfect lady for the job.

Charlotte is the proud owner of 50 pairs of high heels and has a special wardrobe to keep them in.

Laura Davis
Account Manager


Laura joined us in October 2012 after three years working at sea in a variety of roles including photographer, entertainments officer and stewardess.

She tells us she is very excited to no longer have a lifejacket as an accessory and, instead, have two legs firmly on the ground here at The Crewing Company.

Laura has a degree in photography, loves to dance, play scrabble and plans to learn the saxophone.

She was once nearly sick on miniature TV funnyman, Ronnie Corbett.

Sarah Dodds
Senior Consultant


Sarah arrived at TCC HQ in July 2012 fresh from University and immediatley managed to wangle two weeks work as a runner for us on the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

A Geordie lass and self proclaimed dancer, Sarah has recently moved back up north to be a Consultant at our Manchester office, taking good care of all our northern freelancers and clients.

In the short time she was in London she appeared in Look magazine, a New Look advert and even met Wills and Kate (well she sat not far from them anyway).

Daniella Buttice


Daniella or “Dani” joined us in May 2014 to look after our Front of House in London and is now part of our busy team of recruiters.

A graduate of Teeside University, where she earned a degree in TV and Film Production as well as a love for a North East accent, Dani is a huge fan of 80s pop duo Wham with a massive crush on George Michael and is convinced she will one day see them live!

She loves making wine with her Nonno (granddad) and has even started brewing her own beer. Friday afternoons in the office might get even more fun!

Jay Williamson
Bookings Coordinator


Jay arrived at The Crewing Company in March 2015 with a degree in Media, Culture & Society from the University of Hull and eighteen months of experience working in production.

She admits that she once left a lift at the wrong floor because she wanted to follow the Britain’s Next Top Model contestant who was getting out.

She also likes sheep. Although they don’t seem to like her!

Madeleine Budd
Bookings Assistant


Madeleine joined us in March 2015 with a degree in Television from the University of Westminster as well as international production experience including an internship with The Walt Disney Company.

Madeleine is a keen horse rider, loves the outdoors and is famous in Essex for her pumpkin carving skills where both she and her squash based creations have appeared in numerous local newspapers!

Mary Broome
Bookings Assistant


Mary joined us in December 2015 with a degree in Visual Communications from Leeds College of Art. She discovered the course somewhat accidentally by turning up to the wrong open day and feeling too awkward to leave!

She is a keen baker and tells us that if she wasn’t working at TCC she’d be baking cakes all day in a bid to become the next Mary Berry.

Animal lover Mary used to live next door to a Zoo and used her season pass almost every day to see the sea lion show!

Meharvash Rizvi
Accounts Clerk


Meharvash – or “Mev” – joined our accounts team in January 2016. She has an Accounting and Finance degree from the University of Greenwich – where she met “surprisingly short” Robert Downey Jr. during the filming of Les Miserables.

She likes to travel, has an incredible collection of handbags and will sleep in the hall if there is a moth in her room and no-one else is around to kill it.
