For those who have been following the Management transition period at our co-op, we have entered a new phase. We have switched to a seven person Interim Management Team (IMT) and we have hired an executive search firm to help with our General Manager (GM) search.
Our new Interim Management Team is comprised of all seven of our current departmental Managers: eric cressly, Jen Girty, Maura Holliday, Shawn McCullough, Erin Meyers, Amber Pertz, and Kate Safin (the Produce Manager position is in it’s own transition right now). These Managers will continue to cooperatively manage the store while we look for a new General Manager. We thank the three person DGMT (eric cressly, Jen Girty, and Shawn McCullough) for seeing us through the last year so smoothly. We have made this switch at their request for increased parity and collaboration among their peers. The Board is confident that we are in good hands!
The Carlisle Group, an executive search firm with experience working with co-ops, is now on the hunt to find us a GM that will provide the leadership we need to continue to improve all aspects of our business, community, and mission. If you know anyone who would fit the bill, please send them the job posting
