Celebrating Employee Ownership with Aardman Animation


In November 2018 Aardman Animation co-founders Peter Lord and David Sproxton chose employee ownership as their preferred route to continuing independence and success.

With over 40 years of producing award-winning content under their belts they wanted to secure the creative legacy and culture of the company for many decades to come; a legacy that has reaped the company four Oscars and fourteen BAFTAs since 1989.

They believe this transition is a natural evolution and will allow the company to continue as a sustainable, successful, independent organisation, creatively and commercially, now in the hands of those who built it – its people.
