Heather Reisman will return to helm Indigo Books and Music Inc., the company she founded, amid a series of executive shakeups and recent setbacks for the retailer.
The company said Monday that Reisman will return as CEO after outgoing chief executive Peter Ruis announced his departure a couple of weeks ago.
Ruis took over the leadership role from Reisman a little over a year ago. Reisman had been orchestrating an exit from the company, stepping down as CEO at that time and retiring as chairperson of the board of directors on Aug. 22.
Indigo’s sales have taken a hit in recent months amid aftershocks from a ransomware attack in the spring and signs of a slowdown in consumer spending.
More to come.
