The board wants your input on hiring the new General Manager!
Your Co-op has been functioning smoothly under an interim management team since October, 2017, when our prior General Manager resigned. After considering the options of continuing team management versus hiring a new GM, the interim management team impressed the board with their assessment that a General Manager was in the best interest of the Co-op.
So it’s been 17 months, but the GOOD NEWS is that we are on the home stretch in our search for a new GM. We’ve interviewed several candidates and, though we are keeping the search open, we are ready to move to the second round of interviews for three individuals we would like you to meet.
They are Maura Holliday, currently the Grocery Manager here at East End Food Coop; Christopher DeAngelis, the General Manager at Apple Street Market Cooperative in Cincinnati, OH; and Janiqua Jackson, the General Manager at Urban Greens Food Coop in Providence, RI.
We have scheduled three “Meet the Candidate” sessions. We hope you can attend one or–even better–all three, to hear the candidates introduce themselves, ask your questions and provide us with your impressions.
