JCPenney will soon be on the hunt for a new chief financial officer after Jeffrey Davis announced the he will leave the retailer by the end of this month, according to the Financial Times.
Why it matters: The retailer — whose chief executive left to be CEO of Lowes — has had a rocky year adapting to the shifting dynamic of online shopping. The company is $4 billion in debt with a stock price below $2 a share. Davis has been with the company since February 2016, and is stepping down “to pursue another opportunity,” effective October 1.
