Stein (pictured) has been IT chief at M&S since 2006, but the retailer said last month that his role had “significantly changed” recently.
He led the major redevelopment of the M&S website, which was launched in February. But in the last few years, board-level responsibility for online retail at M&S moved to executive director of multichannel e-commerce, Laura Wade-Gery, who in 2011 was poached from Tesco, where she was e-commerce director.
Reckitt Benckiser owns brands such as Air Wick, Cillit Bang, Dettol Clearasil and Durex.
