Would the leadership of a worker cooperative in a capitalist state be a proletariat or bourgeois?

Kind of a hypothetical situation I’m curious about: What would you think of a socialist or communist that founds and/or works in a high up position in a worker co-op (presumably such a position would be elected by employees)?
