David Jones’ CEO David Thomas is out.

The retailer confirmed with Business Insider that Thomas has resigned for personal reasons.

“A replacement CEO for David Jones will be announced in due course, and WHL Group CEO Ian Moir will work directly with the David Jones management team in the interim,” a spokesperson said.

Thomas took over from John Dixon when he departed last year. Thomas was formerly the company’s chief operating officer.

Thomas was the third CEO for the company since Woolworths Holdings Ltd acquired the business in 2014.
