Keene’s co-op has a new assistant manager.

The Monadnock Food Co-op announced the hire of Patrick Cotter to that post in a recent news release. Cotter gained supervisory experience in the grocery industry while working at a Whole Foods Market in Pennsylvania for a decade, the release notes.

“We are thrilled to have Pat join our team. His knowledge of natural foods and love for local products supports our mission and will be invaluable to our thriving co-op,” said Stephanie Wright, the co-op’s store manager. “Please say hello when you see him in the store.”
