About Marcel:

Previous Roles Chair of Planning, Staffing, Finance and Scrutiny 2015 to 2020.

Moved from London to Somerset, Wookey Hole with my wife Thena and two very young Children in 1989 to join Somerfield Stores

Professionally after finishing further education I joined Lipton's as a Tea and Coffee buyer in the late 70's and after a merger with Safeway in 1985 and joined the Somerfield Group in 1987. This resulted in me relocating to Wookey Hole in June 1989. Fortunately working in the area of procurement ever since until I took early retirement in 2015 when the Co-op purchased Somerfield as I wished to remain in the lovely county of Somerset.

I have been involved in all aspects of procurement for most categories within a Supermarket and was involved in working with local producers during the Foot and Mouth and BSE crisis. I have enjoyed the love of good wines as was fortunate to Head up Wines and Spirits for 4 years. You could say retail was in my blood and I have been very fortunate to have had a very enjoyable job whilst managing to travel the world on procurement trips to circa 40 countries.

My two Children both live locally and we now have 3 Grand children with another due in 2021 which are all our pride and joy and keep me very busy.

I look forward to continue representing the parishioners of St Cuthbert's Out Parish.
