    Chief Executive


    Steve Murrells became Co-op Group CEO in March 2017 having previously led the Co-op’s Food business. Steve was a key part of the Executive team who rescued and turned around the business post 2014 when the Group almost collapsed. Now, Steve has overall responsibility for all the Co-op’s businesses - Food, Funeralcare, Insurance, Legal Services and Health. Steve has also overseen the acquisition of Nisa Retail Limited which now sees the Co-op wholesale to over 7,700 stores across the UK. The Co-op is the UK’s largest mutual business with more than 4.5 million members, 63,000 colleagues and a presence in every postal region of the country. Steve has developed a bold vision for the Co-op, to ‘Co-operate for a fairer world.’ He has led the organisation to stay true to this throughout and in the aftermath of the Covid 19 crisis and campaigns boldly on issues such as violence against shop workers, modern slavery, racial inequality and food poverty.
