Anthony Whittaker was running Mr Marlar’s M&A business in London and looking for a French business partner. After starting out as an entrepreneur in the textiles industry, Claude wanted to develop in France the new profession of mergers and acquisitions consulting for intermediate-sized companies and SMEs. His meeting with Jean-Paul resulted in the creation of CMW, much to everyone’s satisfaction.
