Leadership

The Founders: Wayne and Stella

Wayne (Retired Managing Director) and Stella Dearing (Senior Executive Vice President) 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.

Grom Social

This is Grom Social

In June 2016, Grom Social bought Top Draw Animation.

Created by kids, for kids, Grom Social is a trusted, responsible, bully free space that encourages every child to dream big, be kind and stay safe.

With more than 15 million users to date (including parents) and growing rapidly, Grom’s mission is to teach kids around the world how to be good digital citizens, while providing parents with 100% transparency.
