Fellow Co-op Members,
At its meeting on February 26, 2020, the Co-op’s Board of Directors was tasked with choosing an Interim General Manager to serve the Co-op until a new General Manager has been hired. Current General Manager Ed Fox has given his notice and will be leaving the Co-op in early April.
We are pleased to announce that Paul Guidone will fill that role. Paul is currently the Co-op’s Strategic Advisor and a member of Ed’s Leadership Team. The Board’s process included interviews with all members of the Leadership Team, and we found their camaraderie, shared trust, and mutual respect to be reassuring evidence that Paul and the team will continue Ed’s good work. Paul will assume his new role on March 8.
The Board also elected board member Jessica Saturley-Hall to serve as chair of the Search Committee for a new General Manager. Jessica will be assembling her committee and moving forward in the next few weeks.
Both Jessica and I welcome any input, questions, or comments you may have regarding this or any other board matter. Please feel free to email JessicaSaturleyHall@board.coopfoodstore.com or firstname.lastname@example.org at any time.
Board President, Hanover Consumer Cooperative Society, Inc.
