Harvey Nichols chief executive Stacey Cartwright will step into the role of deputy chairman, as the department store reshuffles its management board.
Cartwright will take up her new role at the start of 2018. She will oversee the brand and continue to report to Harvey Nichols chairman and owner Sir Dickson Poon.
Group commercial director Daniela Rinaldi and group finance director Manju Malhotra will take on joint roles as co-chief operating officers.
Under this new structure, they will assume joint responsibility for the day-to-day running of the business and ongoing strategic development of the group. They will report to Cartwright and Poon.
Harvey Nichols confirmed that Rinaldi’s and Malhotra’s new roles are permanent, and that the company is not seeking a new chief executive.
Cartwright said: “Daniela and Manju each bring a wealth of experience to their new roles, with highly complementary skill sets.”
Rinaldi added: “We have made great strides in our strategy to transform the business and I am committed to driving Harvey Nichols forward through the next phase of our growth.”
Cartwright joined Harvey Nichols in February 2014 as chief executive, taking over from previous postholder Joseph Wan.
Rinaldi has worked at Harvey Nichols for more than 30 years after joining in 1986. She became controller of perfumery and concessions a decade later, and in 2009 was promoted to the board as concessions and beauty director.
Malhotra stepped into the chief financial officer position in 2010, after holding various roles at the department store. She joined Harvey Nichols in 1998 as internal audit manager.
