Kramer and Walker were among several executives hired in November 2011 by Penney’s former chief executive, Ron Johnson. Johnson was ousted April 8 after his plans to reinvent the chain led to disastrous results.

The departures are the latest personnel changes from new CEO Mike Ullman, who had been Johnson’s predecessor.
