Marston: How an interim can drive the M&A integration process

Marston is a major player in the judicial services market, a very unique and heavily regulated, yet very lucrative, industry. Created in 2008, the Marston Group was already enjoying success, but after private equity investment, was seeking to expand further via strategic acquisitions.

We were introduced to Marston by the Chairman, who we had worked with previously, and asked to find an interim integration specialist with plenty of prior M&A experience, followed by an executive search for a permanent COO.

Find out how we leveraged our Elite Interim Network, enabling the business to quickly get to grips with the complexities of managing the integration process.


“We were looking for an interim with financial and deal strategy understanding, not just a programme manager.  To me, there’s a big difference; they had to understand M&A and the strategy of the deal.”
