We are pleased to announce the appointment of John Chillcott as our Non Executive Chairman.
John brings with him a wealth of business experience. He has recently stepped down as CEO of Anglia Co-operative, after 6 years in the post, after the completion of a successful merger with Midlands co-operative. The role at Anglia demanded strong strategic skills and the ability to lead a large team along a path of significant change and restructuring. John left Anglia with the support and engagement of the board and his colleagues at full strength.
John served over 3 years on the Board of Beales PLC, a national Department store group and currently serves on the board of AHF, one of the largest worker co-operatives in the UK. John is also Chair of Social enterprise East of England, a member organisation for that sector.
John is a strategic thinker with strong leadership, influencing and implementation skills which he will use to great effect to assist in the continued growth and development of Magentity.
Co-Founder Jason Russell and Istvan Orban commented: ‘We are delighted that John has taken the very positive step and agreed to join our company. His business expertise and experience wil ensure the continued strategic developments and growth of Magentity.’
