Roy Muir (Council Colleague Member)
Co-op Food store manager in East London and therefore doubly interested in the success of the Co-op. Particularly keen for colleagues to engage more with the membership side of the business and for the Co-op to cascade our values and principles and heritage down to the colleagues more effectively. I certainly think we miss a trick by not enthusing colleagues to be advocates for co-operation and even more so by not promoting our values and principles as aggressively as we promote our brand. Away from the Co-op, I read thrillers and support Spurs - both stretch the imagination at times.
Dan Crowe (Vice President and Senate)
I have been a co-operator since Woodcraft Folk. I trade regularly with the Co-op across our businesses and work to promote our values and principles in my personal and professional life. With a background in policy, research, communications and project management I am trying to use my skills and experience to promote greater opportunities for member involvement in the Co-op. I am particularly keen for the Council to champion innovative and accessible member education and training that promotes the Co-op difference and to support local co-operative, self-help and mutual aid initiatives in the communities where we trade.
I’m a long-term supporter of the Co-op and its values, and I am honoured to serve on the Members’ Council because I believe they are more relevant than ever. I work as an environmental journalist, which has given me insight into the importance of issues such as sustainable business and Fairtrade, including meeting people in co-operatives around the world. Back home, I love being part of London and enjoy volunteering with young people in my community.
My career was devoted to public service, in local government and the NHS. Environmental concerns encouraged me to study Environmental Management and establish the Global Commons Trust. I’m motivated by my desire to tread lightly on the planet, improve organisational and business practices and help the Co-op show leadership in investment decisions that have social and/or environmental impacts.
To fulfil my love of art, I work at the William Morris Gallery and create contemporary textiles.
