Listed department store group Myer Holdings has sacked CEO Richard Umbers after issuing its third profit downgrade in less than 12 months. However, executive chairman Garry Hounsell says the group will persist with the "new Myer" turnaround strategy that Umbers launched in 2015, despite the fact that its targets have not been met. Major shareholder Premier Investments has renewed its criticism of Myer in the wake of Umbers’ departure, and argues that the entire board needs to be replaced.
