Biramis works for business owners who want to earn more, and become financially independent when they retire or exit their businesses. It is vital to build a wealth creation plan as part of your exit strategy.

Maximise the personal wealth you can gain from a successful exit, whether that is through a trade sale, management buyout, or passing the business on to a family member. 

Grow, Profit, Create More Assets, Achieve Wealth.

Plant growing
Cut through complexity

Maximise the value of the business you have created.

Every business owner at some point needs to make the choice to exit their business. Whether it is a succession to the next generation, or to another business, many owners overlook exit strategy since they are deeply involved within the day-to-day operations of the business.

Plus business exits come with  tax implications and lifestyle consequences.

Build long term wealth

The best business exit strategies are balanced to meet your needs.

We at Biramis understand the advantage of early planning to ensure that you create maximum value before your business exit and that the process is a smooth one.

Biramis helps you navigate this journey to ensure that your exit reaps the maximum benefits and value.

With experience in fast growth businesses, we find that clients require a mix of extra management skills, but also capacity, in order to move at a pace.

The Biramis Team

Bernard Kelly

Bernard brings entrepreneurial flair and deep experience in building substantial scale and value into businesses. He bought Benson Bed Centres in 1984, when they had 8 shops and in need of a turnaround. Bernard then built the Company to 140 stores before selling it successfully to a public company. On his departure, the Group had 423 stores. The company was then put up for sale with an asking price of £150 million. Now (not quite) retired, Bernard has a vested interest in helping grow and build Biramis MP into a leading international specialist management consultancy group, as he brings a wealth of practical skills and experience. In addition, Bernard also owns a substantial family property portfolio and retains a strong interest in stock market activity.

His broad commercial and financial background was gained from working in and consulting to a diverse range of private companies and industry types at a senior level.

Steve Eccles PhD, BEng, CIMA Dip MA

Steve has a background in project management and commercial management. He has held operational roles in a variety of industries where businesses have also benefited from his data and analytical skills. This includes risk analysis of projects and contract strategies, the subject of his PhD at Sheffield University. He supports our service and applies his mathematical rigour to bind our well-balanced quantitative and qualitative service together. Steve has applied his 20 years’ experience of planning and controls within the software industry to develop Biramis’ internal platform and service delivery.

His role helps clients and the team deliver the benefits of a management partnership with Biramis and maximise value-building.

As a full strategy team, encompassing Wealth Creation Strategy as the wrapper, Digital, Finance, HR and Lean Operations, we act as Management Partners rather than external consultants, as the Biramis blend. We are also perceived as a ‘Non Executive Partner team’.


"I have been working and collaborating with Christiane Hutchinson and her teams for the past 10 years on various projects. Her commitment to deliver is unshakable and her way of working is practical, strategic and result oriented. I have worked with Christiane on turnaround as well as business growth projects. The ethos of wealth creation has always been at the core of her approach and her delivery team. No matter what the starting point is, the method crafted by Christiane, and now being delivered under the Biramis banner, is robust and I would recommend it to anyone seriously wishing to build a valuable business, whether for retirement purposes, or fast growth."
Turlough O'Sullivan
Managing Director Resolve IE & former Director General, Irish Business and Employers Confederation (IBEC)
"I have known and worked with Christiane on business projects over the past 12 years. Her approach has always been totally pro-active to help grow businesses with the purpose of wealth creation and building value, before a medium to long term exit. This business purpose is supported by second to none experience and expertise and a determination to help clients achieve their goals, through a personable and flexible style. I would recommend the Biramis team to business owners who are serious about achieving business success and their wealth creation goals."
Neil Keenan
Partner and Head of Corporate Byrne Wallace Solicitors
"Christiane’s method to build valuable businesses really served us well when she and her team worked with us in Dublin over a two-year period. As a result, my business was in a much more structured shape and I was able to prepare for my exit, as a 50% shareholder. I am now retired, and I can enjoy a worry-free time. I know that the time and investment in building a valuable business in a purposeful way is a much better way to grow your business than purely reacting to events and hoping for the best. I would certainly recommend Christiane and her now Biramis team. True wealth is about choice and options – if you have a valuable company, you don’t need to sell it if you don’t want to, but you know you can… that is wealth from your business."
