SmartCompany recently profiled our Managing Director Leonie Henzell on the journey she’s taken with starting Bockers & Pony and how she’s managed to grow the business so quickly over the past 11 years.

After moving from Brisbane to Melbourne, Leonie found it extremely difficult to send beautiful gifts to family and friends. So utilising the spare room at her house, she started Bockers & Pony with the notion of offering beautiful and luxurious gifts that could be ordered online and delivered all across Australia.

Leaving 10 years of working as a sports and orthopedic physiotherapist behind, she set out with some capital and started Bockers & Pony with her friend Nicole.  

11 years on, business is flourishing. Bockers & Pony now operates out of a warehouse in Richmond.
