Steven Cain, CEO Coles Group

At Coles Group, we are immensely proud of our team members who fed and helped the community during the 2019/2020 bushfires crisis. John Appleby, in particular, embodied our purpose to sustainably feed all Australians to help them lead healthier and happier lives, showing our values of passion and pace and responsibility in supporting his team and the wider Batemans Bay community in a time of great need. John went above and beyond, ensuring our emergency services, volunteers and evacuees could get the food and suppliers they needed, as well as helping our customers feel safe and calm in our Batemans Bay store.
