Sears Holdings Corp said Monday (2 April) that Donald Carty, vice chairman and chief financial officer of Dell Inc, has decided to step down from the Sears board in order to focus on his duties at Dell.
 
Carty will serve on the Sears board until its annual meeting in May but will not stand for re-election at that time. He's been a director of Sears since the merger of Sears, Roebuck and Kmart in 2005.

He was named to his most recent post at Dell in January.

"I want to thank Don for his service on the board and for his leadership, guidance and counsel," said Edward Lampert, chairman of Sears. "I especially appreciate the commercial judgment that Don contributed to our company."
