Our approach

Along with Weinberg Capital Partners, REALEASE Capital has doubled both its EBITDA and turnover, which is around €170m. In the same timeframe, the Group has led a successful management transition and digitalized the full range of its service offering and internal processes. The workforce has grown by close to 40%, notably with key recruitments among the executive management and sales teams.

Under our leadership REALEASE Capital has modified its organization to better accommodate the forthcoming growth. Lionel Le Camus has been hired in 2020 to support Cyril Marlaud in the structuring and development of the Group. To this aim this high-quality management team was able to conjugate healthily both commercial dynamism and risk management.
