While the firm has provided financial advice to major companies, Madison has focused in partnering with the firms in the middle-market to successfully navigate intricate transactions and attain the best possible results. The experienced financial experts are always at the table providing expert financial advice and sophisticated guidance to clients whenever options emerge.

Charles Botchway’s ideas on Madison Street Capital
Charles Botchway is founder and CEO of the Madison Street Capital. He manages the overall operations and strategic direction of the firm. Before establishing Madison, Botchway was vice chairman and co-CEO of the Houlihan Smith and Company, his task was overseeing the operations and strategic direction of the company and crafting and executing the international expansion strategy of the firm. He has also served in various roles within the mergers and acquisitions and corporate finance sector of the investment banking that focuses on private mid-market and developing market transactions.
Botchway got the idea of starting Madison Street Capital while he was a co-CEO of another investment bank. His partner wanted to specialize on derivatives and big corporations while he wanted to remain dedicated to serving corporate needs and M&A of the middle market clients. He believes that that segment is the heart of American economy and the impact that they make on individual lives is more fulfilling. The divergence of the strategy is what motivated the creation of the Madison Street Capital.
Botchway and his team bring ideas to life by constantly brainstorming and sharing ideas on ways to do things in a different and in a more efficient manner. Since they are generally a diagnostic bunch, they vet new ideas very quickly. If an idea proves to be viable, they then execute it.
One thing that really excites Botchway is the globalization scale. The international transactions were normally reserved for big international investment banks. Thanks to growth of technology, the boutique banks such as Madison are now in a position to compete in global investment bank field.
