Here’s a throwback to when Leanne met her mentor Kim Kiyosaki back in 2009, and a more recent encounter in 2020 discussing women in business. Over the past 11 years, with many more un-filmed meetings, Kim has grown from being Leanne’s mentor to friend, and their bond is a classic example of the strong relationships Leanne creates throughout the business. As our Mergers and Acquisitions Director, these skills in building relationships and managing and negotiating M&A activity to its completion are essential at United Capital. A lot of her work is carried out behind the scenes, so what better day to celebrate her than International Women’s Day!
Over the past 13 years, Leanne has grown her residential property company, Carling Property Group, into the largest privately-owned residential landlords in Scotland. She’s been involved in over 1,000 property transactions with a value of over £200million, and Leanne’s work behind the scenes is just as interesting as the high figures. Whether Graeme’s come home to find the microwave’s gone missing or their duvet’s done a disappearing act, it’s testament to Leanne’s caring nature that she’d give her own belongings to tenants who have nothing.
Leanne absolutely loves giving back, so if you’re looking for a successful businesswoman to speak and inspire women at your next event, just get in touch! #IWD2020 #EachforEqual
