Kingfisher confirmed Weir, 41, had tendered her resignation as group FD on Tuesday morning. She is understood to be seeking a more operational management role.
She has been with the company for eight years and her three-year tenure as group FD has seen her focus on restructuring the group, which includes DIY store B&Q.
Formerly with McKinseys, Weir will step down from the board at the end of this financial year but will remain with the group until the end of next March to ensure an orderly handover to her successor.
