Steve Murrells, Co-op Group CEO, joins The Co-op Credit Union

We’re delighted to welcome Steve Murrells, CEO of the Co-op Group as a new member to The Co-op Credit Union.

Steve visited the Credit Union’s stand in Co-op’s head office in Angel Square as part of Co-operatives Fortnight, where The Co-op Credit Union team were promoting the benefits of Credit Union membership to employees.

Steve chatted with the team and recorded a short video about the credit union, saying “I wanted to reflect on the importance of the work the credit union do. Since their beginning they have now lent £30m to its members up and down the country. It’s a great way of connecting with our co-op, it’s a great example of how co-op does things differently.

“I’ve signed up today because I think it’s really important that we do have a connection with the credit union. It’s a way of responsibly getting credit, and why shouldn’t we do it in a way with an organisation that is so affiliated with our co-op.

“My encouragement is to all of you is to sign up – I’m sure you’ll find it’s the best way of either saving your money or getting the most helpful way of borrowing money for your needs and to help you get on with life”.

The Co-op Credit Union has over 8,500 members and membership is open to all co-op employees, and members & employees of a wide range of Co-operative businesses and organisations. To find out more and join us, visit:
