The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that he is leaving, along with the company’s Chief Revenue Officer, Marty Amschler. The duties of that job are going to two other executives, a vice president of stores and a vice president of store operations.
While the company searches for a new CEO, the chief financial officer, Gordon Briscoe, will step in. RadioShack told the Star-Telegram that Garriques stepped down “to pursue other interests in a role that will put him back closer to his family.” That could be in Austin, where Dell is based, or it could just be a classic reason given now that his work slimming down the Shack is done.
