April 17, 2017,
NEW YORK—Crate and Barrel’s CEO Doug Diemoz has left the company after less than two years, the Chicago Tribune reported.
Neela Montgomery, an executive board member at the Otto Group, Crate and Barrel’s parent company, told employees that she would take on “most of Doug’s current responsibilities working closely with Steve ‘Woody’ Woodward, President and Chief Merchant, and Mike Relich, Chief Operating Officer, and the rest of the executive leadership team,” according to an internal memo obtained by the Tribune.
Diemoz, who is involved in a lawsuit with Restoration Hardware over a food and beverage store concept, left earlier last week, the Tribune said.
Crate and Barrel couldn’t be reached for comment.
