Selfridges boss Simon Forster has left the business after just over a year at the helm.
Forster, who only took over in October 2018, has been replaced as managing director by his predecessor, Anne Pitcher, on an interim basis.
Pitcher will combine the duties with her current role overseeing the Selfridges Group until a permanent successor can be found.
According to The Sunday Telegraph, which first reported the news, Forster’s exit comes amid concerns about the direction of travel at Selfridges and its culture.
