A second key executive of struggling entertainment retailer HMV has announced a decision to leave - days after the CEO departed.
"David will remain with the company until a successor is appointed to ensure a smooth handover."
Last Thursday, CEO Simon Fox resigned from the firm, with a departure date announced of September 3.
Mr Fox has taken the struggling retailer through tough times during his six-year reign, and following the company's close collapse last year has tried to turn its fortunes around.
However, during his time in charge HMV’s share price has plummeted and the firm has been forced to sell various arms of the business to refinance itself.
In June HMV sold its live music venues, including the Hammersmith Apollo, for £32m.
Last year Mr Fox also oversaw the £53m sale of the firm's book chain, Waterstones.
In another bid to boost the business, HMV has shifted its focus onto technology products such as headphones, tablet computers and MP3 players.
HMV hopes that Mr Moore, who is credited with turning around camera chain Jessops, will further improve business strategy to pull profits back.
