Best Buy CEO resigned amid probe into 'personal conduct'

Best Buy CEO Brian Dunn, who resigned on Tuesday, was facing an internal probe into unspecified "personal conduct" issues. "Certain issues were brought to the board's attention regarding Mr. Dunn's personal conduct, unrelated to the company's operations or financial controls, and an audit committee investigation was initiated," Claire Koeneman, a Best Buy spokeswoman, said in a statement to multiple news outlets. "Prior to the completion of the investigation, Mr. Dunn chose to resign." It's unclear what the conduct concerned or how long the investigation was going on when Dunn resigned. Dunn, a 28-year company veteran, was replaced on an interim basis by Mike Mikan, a Best Buy board member, while the company looks for a permanent replacement. Article
