Stacey Cartwright is stepping down from her role as deputy chairman of Harvey Nichols six months after a management shake-up that saw her give up her duties as chief executive.

Cartwright had led the luxury department store since 2014 before she was moved to the deputy chairman role in September.

Two co-chief operating officers Daniela Rinaldi and Manju Malhotra have since absorbed her duties as chief executive.

According to the Evening Standard, Cartwright is expected to exit the retailer at the end of the month.

“I leave the business in the excellent hands of Daniela and Manju, and will be an admiring fan and customer going forward,” she said in a statement.

Sir Dickson Poon retains his position at chairman.

Before Harvey Nichols, Cartwright worked for Burberry for nine years in chief financial officer and executive vice president roles.

She is credited with modernising the iconic department store.
