HELP ME WITH THIS WORD!

Kabaliger or Cabaliger? My friend is sure this is a word, but I can't find it in any dictionary. He says it means: Someone who is in charge of something and pulls it off successfully. Have you heard of this.

I would think this is a bastardized form of caballer, being one who cabals.

from dictionary.com:

cabal

n 1: a clique (often secret) that seeks power usually through intrigue [syn: faction, junto, camarilla] 2: a plot to carry out some harmful or illegal act (especially a political plot) [syn: conspiracy] v : engage in plotting or enter into a conspiracy, swear together; "They conspired to overthrow the government" [syn: conspire, complot, conjure, machinate]
