Marechale Capital was born out of the desire to provide a bespoke corporate finance advisory service specifically to leisure orientated companies, and so, after many years of advising well known pub and restaurant companies, Patrick Booth-Clibborn founded his own business in 2009 and teamed up with Mark Warde-Norbury. Mark had by this time sold his broking business, St. Helen’s Capital Plc, which had created the perfect AIM quoted cash-shell into which Marechale reversed.
Originally, Patrick had wanted to call his new company Cresta Capital after his love of the world-renowned tobogganing club, but with the name unavailable in regulatory circles he chose a family name, Marechale. His great-grandmother was the daughter of William Booth the founder of The Salvation Army, and with the nickname of ‘Marshal’ it was she who was responsible for bringing the movement’s great humanitarian work to France. French of course for marshal is ‘Marechale’ and we like to think that we help management teams marshal themselves through the complexity of financing their businesses to exit.
