The head of technology at online retailer NotOnTheHighStreet has stepped down just one year after being hired for the role.
According to Retail Week, it is not yet known if chief technology officer Hugh Fahy has left the etailer to take up another role, but a spokeswoman said it was “mutually agreed that [Fahy] would step down and the business will move forward with the team he’s built beneath him”.
Retail Week said NotOnTheHighStreet’s technology director Dan Knight and product director Caroline Ohrn will jointly fill Fahy’s former position on an interim basis, with the possibility that his role could be directly replaced sometime later.
A key achievement by Fahy, who was poached from Net-A-Porter, was that he oversaw the roll-out of Apple Pay across NotOnTheHighStreet’s website and mobile app.
“Hugh has built a talented and highly skilled team, and has played an important role in helping to deliver our strategy to build the leading platform that connects small creative businesses with millions of customers the world over,” chief executive Simon Belsham said.
“We have a succession plan in place and our strategy remains unaffected.”
