Royal Berkshire Shooting School has been acquired by Alex Newman
The shareholders of the Royal Berkshire Shooting School Group (RBSS) including the Really Wild Clothing Company, have sold the companies to Alex Newman, a Chilean-based Briton and a former senior executive at Antofagasta. Financial details of this transaction have not been made public.
The RBSS shooting school was established in 1991 and since that time has been run by co-founder Dylan Williams, supported by London-based property entrepreneur and avid country sportsman Bryan Richmond-Dodd, who also retains a significant shareholding in the elite fishing brands of Farlows and Sportsfish. It is now recognized as the finest facility of its kind in the UK. The Really Wild Clothing Company was created by Natalie Lake in 2002 to appeal to women who enjoy country pursuits and want to be stylish yet practical.
Dylan Williams and Natalie Lake will both be staying in the company with the new owner.
Oaklins Cavendish, based in the UK, advised the seller in this transaction.
