Gary joined the Co-op in 2004 as Head of Pensions and over the years his role has grown to include responsibility for Reward, Wellbeing, Benefits & Employee Relations.
The Co-op, which employs 62,000 colleagues and has pension schemes with assets of over £12bn, has been through an extraordinary journey over the last 15 years. Numerous mergers, acquisitions and sales alongside almost unprecedented levels of business restructuring and transformation have presented Gary with a hugely varied range of challenges and experiences.
At the Co-op, colleague and community are at the heart of everything and we are embarking on an ambitious financial & health wellbeing programme which seeks to “do what matters most”.
Prior to joining the Co-op, Gary held a number of financial services and pension orientated roles with Aegon, HBOS and Aon.
