Leadership

Wayne & Stella Karl

The Founders

Wayne (Managing Director) and Stella (Senior Executive Vice President)

Wayne and Stella Dearing have a combined 72 years in the business (yep, hard to believe) and they have literally seen it all.

After already working for industry heavy weights Hanna Barbera since the 70’s and 80’s, Wayne and Stella created Top Draw from one computer in their living room. Their greatest strength is their commitment to people and the product itself. Nothing else matters and they know that success will rightly follow when they focus on the quality of their work and their commitment to their relationships.

General Manager

Karl Bustos

Karl brings Top Draw more than 20-years sales, marketing and general management experience working for Fortune 500 companies in the Philippines and in the U.S.

Born and raised in Manila, Karl holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing Management and Bachelor of Arts degree in Organization Communications. He spent 13 years in the U.S. to pursue his MBA and work abroad, which places him in the unique position of being able to look at Filipino culture from the inside out and the outside in. He is the perfect bridge between client and studio.
