The Marlowe business philosophy
Marlowe plc’s decentralised operating model gives our businesses considerable autonomy within a well-defined strategic and control framework. Its managers are empowered to make the decisions that they need to for their businesses and markets.
The model seeks to retain the agility of entrepreneurial private businesses whilst providing a platform, as part of Marlowe, which unlocks their potential and stewards their rapid growth, ensuring that all the key stakeholders are focused on value creation.
The Marlowe model
- Regulated and non-discretionary service sectors with steady growth prospects
- Long customer relationships, annuity-type recurring revenues with good future visibility
- Growth through value-enhancing M&A and integration
“The potential offered by the fragmented service sectors that we identify combined with our disciplined approach to M&A, quick decision making and the operational improvements we implement, when married with our access to capital to invest in growth, creates superior returns and provides a platform for significant growth.” Alex Dacre, Chief Executive
