Co-op’s Michael Fletcher joins Co-op Foundation as trustee
The Co-op’s charity the Co-op Foundation has appointed Co-op Retail chief commercial officer Michael Fletcher as its newest trustee.
Fletcher has been working with the Co-op since 2013 following a 22-year career with Tesco where his roles included commercial director of Malaysia.
He joins the foundation as it builds up work on its own strategy which has been designed to support the Co-op’s vision of co-operating for a fairer world and encouraging co-operation as a way of strengthening communities.
Fletcher explained: “The Co-op Foundation already does incredible work and I’m proud to be a part of their talented team. I hope to help the charity grow in the coming year by raising awareness of everything they do and building networks both inside and outside of the Co-op. The Co-op does things differently and the whole Co-op will always be greater than the sum of its parts. The Foundation is an important part of this.”
Nick Crofts, chief executive of the Co-op Foundation, added: “Michael will bring fantastic expertise, experience and commercial know-how to our already talented Board of Trustees. He has helped to lead the Co-op’s Food business through an exciting time in its development and I look forward to learning from him as the Foundation agrees its own strategic direction to help deliver the Co-op’s vision of co-operating for a fairer world.”
