Director Craig Leishman established Boutique in February 2007 with a vision of providing cost effective and solution orientated secretarial services. Boutique remains focused on just that. It has grown rapidly as a result of the specialist expertise and enthusiasm Craig and the BBCL team brings to the business.
Craig practiced law in the property field for fifteen years after graduating with an LLB and BComm (accounting major) from Otago University. Whilst practicing law Craig became involved with the Unit Titles Act and began acting as a Body Corporate secretary. A Diploma in Property was obtained in 1997 to complement the law and accounting degrees.
After a period of involvement in the timber and bloodstock industries Craig returned to the secretarial role after being invited by NZ’s largest Body Corporate secretary to manage their problem Body Corporates and in particular leaky buildings. Complexes suffering from construction issues remain a large part of Craig’s personal portfolio within Boutique.
Craig enjoys the challenges of the industry and puts the impressive growth achievements of Boutique down to the service ethics both he and the team bring to their roles.
