William Najdecki, 52, a director of 13 companies in the Harrods group, joins two other directors who have left this year, alongside the nine who departed in 2001.
He had been with the company four years and is reported to be returning to his native US.
Harrods’ former auditor PricewaterhouseCoopers resigned at the beginning of this year and was replaced by mid-tier firm Grant Thornton. Latest available figures show that Harrods’ profits tumbled from £38.9m in 1999 to £20.2m in 2000.
