Co-Operatives and Mutuals

Co-Operatives and Mutuals

Fostering excellence in the community sector

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.

Being member-based organisations, co-operatives and mutuals (CMEs) have a different sense of purpose and set of objectives compared to shareholder-driven enterprises. As CMEs exist to meet the needs of their members, employees and the communities in which they operate, this can present unique recruitment, operational and leadership challenges, including for the role of a Board Director.

Supporting co-operatives and mutuals

Gerard Daniels understands the uniqueness of CMEs and the social and economic contribution that they make.

As a trusted industry advisor, we have considerable experience working alongside CMEs in sectors like banking, insurance, healthcare, education and agriculture. We can offer our entire service offering to help CMEs be strong; resilient and to develop diverse, respected and highly effective Boards and Executive leadership teams.

As well as identifying and recruiting skilled and suitably experienced directors and senior executives, we offer support and expert advice on talent orientation and development; board composition; independent performance assessments; remuneration review and succession planning – to ensure both current and future business success.

We know how rewarding working with CMEs can be. We also understand what it takes for CMEs to successfully compete for and keep good people, particularly when executive talent is high in demand, but short in supply.
