Lord Victor Adebowale, MA, CBE (Cross Bench)
Independent Non-Executive Director
Who's on the Co-op board and executive.
The executive is the highest level of management with day-to-day responsibilities for managing our Co-op.
These are Co-op employees and part of the executive management team (senior management). They're responsibile for managing day-to-day business.
The board appoints up to 2 executive directors who are then subject to election by Members at the first AGM following their appointment, and every 3 years after that.
These are members of the board but not on the executive management team. They are not Co-op employees. They provide professional industry knowledge. The board selects and appoints INEDs but members vote for or against INEDs remaining on the board at the first AGM following their appointment.
A Member Nominated Director makes sure your voice is heard at the highest level. Just like the Executive Directors and the Independent Non-Executive Directors, they’re part of the Board but the difference is that they are chosen directly by you. The term of office for the MND position is three years.
