Founder & CEO
Leanne’s career in pharmaceuticals started when she recognised the need for a natural head lice treatment back in 1997. She has since steered Wild Child from humble beginnings in her kitchen to a company that markets products in more than 50,000 stores worldwide.
Director & Formulation Chemist
John was the original director of Harper Point Pty Ltd and was responsible for the development of more than 400 drug and cosmetic products over a career spanning over 30 years. Today, as Wild Child’s Technical Director John is responsible for overseeing product development and regulatory affairs.
Research & Development Manager and Formulation Chemist
Beata is responsible for product formulation, customer liaison, materials sourcing and technology transfer. She has more than 20 years experience in drug and cosmetic manufacture as well as quality management and formulation.
New Business Development
Mary-Ann is responsible for our business development, client relationship building and management. Mary-Ann has over 14 years of commercial and professional services experience across various industries both within Government and the Private Sector. Experience includes contract management and negotiation, project management, human resources and internal audit.
In 1997 Leanne Preston, having discovered the gold standard head lice treatment at the time
was a pesticide, developed Australia’s first naturally based head lice treatment. Leanne was
inspired by the potential for safer, more natural remedies and so the Quitnits head lice
treatments were born. Quitnits grew into Australia’s leading head lice brand,
available in stores around the world.
In 2009, Wild Child joined forces with John Found, the scientist behind Harper Point Pty Ltd.
In doing so, Wild Child acquired a portfolio of more than 300 personal care and pharmaceutical
formulations. Additionally, the acquisition augmented research and development capabilities
taking Wild Child from the Australian Exporter of the Year to the go-to manufacturing partner
for the world’s most impressive global brands.
We are a highly qualified team of experts with a passion for premium, natural and organic
products. We also have the industry experience to formulate, develop and manufacture skin
care and over the counter and TGA registered pharmaceuticals for the global marketplace.
