About Nick

Nick is the President of the Co-operative Group National Members’ Council. Passionate about the Co-op, he has served as an elected member of the Society since 2009. He became President of the Council when it was established after the governance reforms following the near-death-experience at the Co-operative Bank.

He is the former Chair of Venture Housing Association, and now serves as a Deputy Chair of Cobalt Housing, a Liverpool social housing provider with 6000 homes.

Nick has been Labour & Co-operative Councillor for Knotty Ash in Liverpool since 2012, and served four years as a member of the Co-op Party’s National Executive.

Having worked for fifteen years in sales and marketing consultancy roles, he is the (soon to be former) Chief of Staff to ex-Labour & Co-operative MP Stephen Twigg.
