  • David Hallam

    Company Director

    Smethwick

    My main message to co-operators in the West Midlands is always feel free to get in touch, which you can do by emailing david.hallam@memberscouncil.coop

    I have been a Member of the European Parliament and a borough councillor and know that democracy works best when there is a dialogue between electors and elected. My ambition is that the Co-op becomes a major brand on the high street and online. We must be part of every community and seen to be a vibrant contributor to the wider regional economy. We offer an alternative way of doing business and must show that we can be efficient, modern and customer focused.

    I work for the Co-operative Party in Membership. I am Chair of Revolver Co-operative a Fairtrade Co-op; A Trustee Board member of the Co-operative College; a Co-operative Trustee Governor of Stafford Manor High School; a Director of Stafford Rangers Supporters Trust, and “President” of Fairtrade Association Birmingham. I aim to help the Group business follow the Co-operative Values and Principles. And I hope to help the National Membership Council hold the Group Board to account.

  • Janson Woodall

    Business Information Manager

    Talke

    I worked for The Co-operative Group for 19 years, only leaving when the Society sold our Pharmacy business. I was also a Group Pension Trustee until 2014. I currently work for the Pharmacy Group Well as Acquisition Integration Programme Manager. I use many of our business such as Food and General Insurance and also continue to use The Co-operative Bank for my financial needs. I want the Council to be a real voice for all Members, ensuring we truly have a say in the way we do business and the strategies we set to truly prosper.

    I am privileged to represent you. I have worked for the coop for 15 years, starting as a Customer Team Member in the Hereford store then moving into the learning and development team. I have two wonderful children who I am very proud of. I also work as a coop member pioneer in Hereford, supporting 36 charities. I believe when people come together there is nothing stronger. This is the coop way.
