Kirkland’s has announced that CFO and COO Nicole Strain will be leaving the company effective August 31 and that it has initiated an executive search process for a new CFO.

Until the company names a successor, Kirkland’s will rely on a newly-established office of the CFO, which will be co-led by Anna Wilhoit, the company’s controller, and Jessica Tatum, senior director of financial planning and analysis. Kirkland’s has assigned the functions within the COO role to other senior members of the operations team, the company stated.

With Its CFO transition plan initiated, Kirkland’s noted that it anticipates reporting fiscal second-quarter results in late August.

“Nicole’s executive leadership has been instrumental in transforming our company into a specialty home furnishings retailer,” said Steve “Woody” Woodward, president and CEO of Kirkland’s, in announcing the executive changes. “As we begin the process of selecting her successor, we are in experienced hands with our current corporate finance and operations teams remaining in place. On behalf of Kirkland’s Home and the board of directors, we wish Nicole the very best in her next endeavor.”
