About Leanne Preston

Work history on LinkedIn

Leanne Preston, CEO and Founder, recognised the need for a natural head lice treatment back in 1997. She has since steered the company from humble beginnings to a company that markets products in more than 35,000 stores worldwide. Leanne’s vison and market insight has kept Wild Child on the cutting edge of cosmeceutical technology. Leanne’s original product Quit Nits is now sold throughout the world. Leanne decided in 2013 to vertically integrate her company and enter pharmaceutical manufacture. The new facility grew rapidly to become a leading Australian manufacturer of natural healthcare. The company is now licensed to distibute medicines for the world market. Wild Child exports over 1 million units a year to the US and the EU
