The best GM for Weavers Way Food Co-op was right here in Philly

Former GM Glenn Bergman left on June 1 for Philabundance

The Board of Directors of Weavers Way, the cooperative grocery with locations in Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill, has appointed Jon Roesser as General Manager. Roesser had previously served as Weavers Way’s Human Resources Director, a position he held since October 2008. He had served as interim general manager since the departure of former general manager Glenn Bergman (who left to be the executive director Philabundance) on June 1.

“Weavers Way is about relationships, and there’s nobody better at that than Jon,” said Bergman. “I know he understands Co-op principles and the value of community. I enjoyed working with him for six years. He’ll be great at leading the Co-op through the transitions that lie ahead.”

Before he started at Weavers Way, Roesser worked for 13 years at Adecco Corp., a global HR services company, in a variety of roles including director of Adecco’s six-branch Philadelphia region.

A search committee with representatives from the Weavers Way Board, staff and membership, assisted by a consultant from Cooperative Development Services, engaged in a nationwide search before the full Board decided unanimously to offer Roesser the position, Hill said. He added, “We’re delighted that he accepted our offer.”

“I’m honored our Board of Directors has selected me to serve as our Co-op’s next General Manager,” Roesser said. “These are exciting times at Weavers Way, and I look forward to leading the Co-op as we continue to serve our communities and look for new ways we can grow the cooperative economy in Philadelphia.

“I’d like to thank our Board of Directors for the confidence they’ve shown in me. I’d also like to thank my amazing colleagues here at the Co-op, who have been so supportive and encouraging these last few months while I’ve served as interim general manager.”
