New NED appointed to Co-Op board

The Channel Islands Co-operative Society has appointed the Chair of its Audit and Risk Committee as a Non-Executive Director.

Peter Shirreffs, who has spent over 30 years in banking, was appointed in April for an 18-month contract.

He is a former president and fellow of the Chartered Institute of Bankers and currently serves as a Governor of Jersey Cheshire Home and Chairman of Crimestoppers Jersey.  

"I joined the Channel Islands Co-operative Society because I want to help the company develop and expand," he said. "I have significant experience in service delivery, performance management and strategic planning and feel that I could add great value to these areas. I have also chaired risk committees for several local and international companies so I’m able to use my previous experience and knowledge to chair the Audit and Risk Committee."

Former Head of international development at Jersey Post, Michael McNally has also recently joined the board following as Director following a successful election.

"As a Co-op shareholder for almost 30 years, I am passionate about representing shareholders’ views on the board as well as providing business advice," he said.

"I was delighted to be appointed following the Society’s first virtual AMM earlier this month and I’m looking forward to helping the Society to grow."

Paula Williams, President of the board, said they were thrilled to welcome both new Directors to the board and were excited by "the great leadership and diverse knowledge that they will bring."

"We would also like to say a huge thank you to Alex Fearn for the contribution he made as a director and as Chair of our Audit & Risk Committee last year," she added.

"Following this six-year role as director between 2010 and 2016, Alex brought his experience and expertise back to the Society and made an invaluable contribution to the management of our Audit and Risk.

"It’s thanks to the reliability and expertise of our past and present board members that the Co-op can continue to grow and excel."
