BIE Executive, a leading consultancy working with businesses going through change, has announced that its executive leadership team, led by CEO Rob Walker, have completed a management buyout of the business.
The business has enjoyed a highly successful and profitable period since its previous buyout four years ago, growing turnover by 20%, creating a very strong platform on which to build.
Commenting on the buyout and plans for the business, Rob Walker said, “When we partnered with Barclays four years ago, the aim was to bring a carefully considered, clearly defined proposition to market, focusing on organisations who are going through change. Through the loyal support of our client base and candidate pool we have been able to achieve this.
“The buyout allows us to build on our current position and continue to evolve our market leading consulting proposition. It gives us the ability to be flexible and react nimbly to our client and candidate needs. Our focus is very much on the long-term, we want to grow the business by investing in being even more client and candidate centric.
“We are eager to ensure we maintain the momentum we have built and don’t stagnate by becoming complacent.
“I would like to thank Barclays, who have been a huge support. Without them we wouldn’t have had the opportunity to complete the first buyout, and we wouldn’t be in this position to finalise the buyout of them today.”
