The serious bit - part 1

Transformation can be strategic or tactical, evolutionary or radical. The only real certainty is that businesses today must be prepared to evolve to survive, whilst delivering business-as-usual before, during and after any period of change. BIE is constantly evolving, although remaining committed to building meaningful long-term relationships, lasting legacies and adding value. BIE was formed in 1996 and built a strong reputation in interim management. After a merger in 2010 and an initial management buy-out in 2013, the business was restructured to form an integrated executive search and interim management practice. In 2014, the addition of a consultancy practice prompted the development of the current proposition and brand to include a total transformation solution.

The serious bit - part 2

Following our second management buyout in 2017, we are now wholly owned by our Partner Team. This gives us the ability to react quickly to opportunities as we see them and be flexible when responding to client and candidate needs. This has enabled BIE to build on its current position and continue to evolve its market leading proposition. BIE’s strength in all three services is a unique differentiator. It allows us to understand the challenges that all business leaders face as they seek to seize opportunities, fend off threats and strengthen their market position.
