Will familiar faces bring fresh hope to DJs?

Paul Zahra’s resignation from David Jones makes a lot of sense from Woolworths’ point of view. The group can now focus on seamlessly executing its overhaul of the retailer's strategy, with all senior executives on the same page.

Paul Zahra didn’t last long under the new ownership of David Jones. Less than two weeks after South Africa’s Woolworths acquired the department store group and he has announced his immediate resignation.

Whether the departure was voluntary or otherwise -- Woolworths said he had 'taken' the decision to resign and wanted to move onto new challenges -- it makes sense from the South Africans' point of view.
