Meanwhile, group finance director Matt Robinson has been promoted to chief financial officer.
Both promotions come into effect immediately.
Stewart and Robinson will report directly to group chief executive Hash Ladha.
Oasis and Warehouse has said that neither of the managing director roles will be replaced.
Stewart joined the Warehouse buying team in 1994 and was promoted to brand director in 2012, before becoming managing director in 2019.
Robinson joined the group in 2007 before becoming head of finance for Oasis and Warehouse in 2013, and finance director in 2014.
Property, IT and distribution teams will now report to Robinson, in addition to the finance teams.
Ladha said that both Stewart and Robinson have proved themselves over the years.
In January, Oasis revealed that managing director Sarah Welsh is leaving to join the N Brown Group on March 30 as retail chief executive.
