If Digby is the lifeblood of the business, Leigh is the collective heartbeat. Leigh came to New Zealand with a solid background in banking – this expertise was instrumental to the successful commencement of the D&L Packaging business and its ongoing success ever since.
Now effectively managing two businesses, Leigh single-handedly co-ordinates the accounts, payroll and executive level business management. She thrives on being part of an energised team who are as passionate as she is about delivering client value whilst enjoying an incredible culture that only continues to get better over the years.
Leigh originated from South Africa, however after 24 years living in New Zealand, she calls herself a Kiwi and is a proud All Blacks supporter.
With a background in banking, both in South Africa and then New Zealand, Leigh found it an easy transition to managing accounts and has diligently managed this side of the business since D&L Packaging first started in business.
With a keen eye for figures Leigh co-ordinates all the accounts functions and general administration for D&L Packaging, Vacpack and third subsidiary, Odour Control Technologies.
There’s nothing more than Leigh enjoys more than entertaining her family and friends at their home – enjoying a glass of wine and BBQ’s during summer. She also enjoys taking walks along their local beaches and playing in the surf on her Waveski. Her other interests are reading, gardening and travel.
