GroceryAid names two new trustees

Helen Murray and Louise Stigant

Two leading industry figures have been appointed to GroceryAid’s Board of Trustees: Louise Stigant (pictured right) of Mondelez and Morrisons’ Helen Murray (pictured left).

Louise Stigant replaces Mike Taylor, having taken over the reins as MD of Mondelez in June 2018. She commented:“The importance of GroceryAid’s work has never been so apparent as our industry deals with mounting pressures and even finer margins. I’m looking forward to helping the charity support even more current and former colleagues across the UK in addition to raising awareness of the great work they do.”

Helen Murray joined Morrisons in 2013, where she is currently Special Projects Lawyer. “GroceryAid makes a critical difference to the lives of so many colleagues each year, and its work is now more important than ever,” she said. “It’s a privilege to be able to use my legal skills and expertise in this way, and I look forward to making a positive contribution to the continued success of the charity.”

Ruston Smith, Chair of GroceryAid Trustees, added: “We are delighted to have Louise and Helen further strengthen our Board of Trustees. Their experience and knowledge will give further insight into the industry and I’m sure they will make a very valuable contribution to our long-term strategy of helping more colleagues in need.”
