Report: Dunn Probe Centered on Conduct With Staffer
The internal investigation that led to this week's resignation of Best Buy CEO Brian Dunn was related to Dunn's conduct with a female staffer, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported Thursday.
According to "a source close to Best Buy," the investigation was the result of "multiple complaints that Dunn behaved inappropriately with a female subordinate," including the use of company resources, the newspaper said. Best Buy has not commented on the nature of the investigation, but the company declined when asked by the Star Tribune to challenge the paper's reporting.
Dunn's abrupt resignation was announced Tuesday, with the company disclosing later that day that his departure was related to a company investigation, which is still ongoing, related to the CEO's personal conduct. G. Mike Mikan has been named interim CEO.
