Remaining competitive in global markets can also be challenging

Co-operatives and mutuals (CMES) are a type of member-owned organisation that spans a diverse array of business and industries around the world. Although they can operate in any sector, CMES are common in financial services, insurance, building societies, healthcare, education and the agricultural industries.

Gerard Daniels understands the unique structure and operating style of CMES, as well as the many challenges these organisations face.

Run by members, for members, CMES are not always well understood, as they tend to operate a little differently to other types of business.

Gerard Daniels understands the unique structure and operating style of CMES, as well as the many challenges these organisations face.

Given the democratic nature of these organisations they face some unique and significant operational and leadership challenges, particularly around the role and execution of boards of directors.

Remaining competitive in global markets can also be challenging for CMES, especially when competing with non-cooperatives. Limited budgets and pressure from members to reduce personnel costs can also make it tougher for this sector to attract and retain top tier talent.
