 Financial Intermediation

Sometimes, filling a single position (as in Executive Search) will not adequately resolve the strategic needs of an organization.  An acquisition of an entire organization and its products may be the most suitable method of growth.   

Chalré Associates assists the Financial Intermediation process from concept through completion. Our region-wide contacts keep us abreast of companies in the fields of our focus. Our discovery process pinpoints entities whose owners and structures would be amenable to M&A strategies.  We work to establish optimal guidelines for achieving the corporate and individual goals of all concerned.  We assist in the division of responsibilities and the development of new organizational charts and job descriptions.  We are able to leverage our full range of expertise - from Executive Search, contact and negotiation through evaluation, trend watching and process review.
