Customer and technology chief, Rafeh Masood, will step down from Bed Bath & Beyond Inc, days after the home goods retailer reported a possible data breach, the company said on Wednesday.

Last week, Bed Bath said, by gaining access to the hard drive and certain shared drives of one of its employees, a third party had improperly accessed its data through a phishing scam. It’s still reviewing if the drives had any sensitive or personally identifiable information.

The technology chief’s resignation, effective 02 Dec., was not the result of any disagreement with Bed Bath & Beyond on any matter related to the company’s operations, practices or financial statements, the company said in a regulatory filing.

Once considered a so-called “category killer” in home and bath goods, the big box retailer’s fortunes have dragged after attempts to sell more store-branded products flopped and led to the reshuffle of its management team.

Bed Bath & Beyond appointed Sue Gove as its Chief Executive Officer earlier in October. Gove was named the interim CEO in June after it replaced Mark Tritton in a management shake-up to reverse a slump in its business.
