Today our Co-op Chair, Allan Leighton, and our outgoing and incoming Group CEOs, Richard Pennycook and Steve Murrells, spoke to colleagues at our Support Centre in Manchester about the handover of leadership.

The full video of the event (25mins) is available but here we bring you some short highlights.

Allan Leighton spoke about the continuity that Steve would bring and the importance of being able to appoint our new Group CEO from within the organisation.

Richard explained why he’s taken the decision to stand down now.

Steve Murrells then spoke about the importance and opportunities the Renew phase of our recovery holds for us.

Steve finished by saying how significant the next few years will be.
