If running a business was like colouring in, then Joy really likes to stay within the lines. With a background in marketing and public relations, Joy Leaper is no stranger when it comes to a good story. It also means she has a pretty good bullshit detector too. After more than 10 years in brand and communications strategy with award winning agencies One Green Bean and Liquid Ideas, she decided to redirect her focus and join forces with Luke to help manage his growing businesses.
Together, they created Hungry Box, converting an old industrial garage in Cromer into a thriving health food café, and continue to work together running Chocolate Box Training, Chocolate Box Travel, Sun Bear Sunscreen and several other small businesses ventures.
Despite being told she would never have a career in media, Joy completed a MA (Global Media Communications), BA Hons. (Media & Communications) and Diploma of Music at the University of Melbourne before moving to Sydney.
Joy is a proud foundation investor of Australia’s most awarded super premium gin, Four Pillars. They are never too pleased to crack open a bottle and share a refreshing Four Pillars gin and tonic with a new friend. They are also the proud co-founders of one year old Scout.”
