Following the changes to the Group Exec that I shared with you a few weeks ago, I’m now delighted to confirm that Jo Whitfield has become our permanent Food CEO.
Jo has been covering the role on an interim basis since February this year. During that time, she’s done a great job leading the work to transform our Food business.
Our Food agenda is ambitious and exciting. I’m confident Jo will get her arms around this huge opportunity and lead our thousands of Food colleagues in the right way, continuing to grow the business and secure our place at the heart of communities across the UK.
Congratulations Jo. I look forward to working together with you as we take our Co-op forward.
