He is credited with steering Hamleys through the recession, which toppled its owner Baugur, overseeing its sale to both Ludendo and its current owner C.banner in 2015.
Dunn is also hailed as being instrumental in building Hamleys’ international portfolio.
It is understood that he is handing over his role to Tesco’s chief financial officer Alex Jablonowski and that the transition process is already underway.
