COO of AnnTaylor Stores, Laura A Weil, has quit less than a year into her tenure with the company.

President and CEO Kay Krill said the company's CFO and chief supply chain officer would report directly to her, while Weil's other responsibilities would be picked up by other senior management members.

Weil joined the women's wear retailer last August, having previously worked at teen apparel chain American Eagle Outfitters.
