Brian Dunn was CEO of the consumer electronics company Best Buy. He began his tenure in 1985, working his way up to the highest rung on the ladder. He resigned in April due to what the company's board attributed to Dunn's "personal conduct."
According to their audit committee, Dunn had "violated company policy by engaging in an extremely close personal relationship with a female employee." Dunn, who was married at the time, received a severance package of over $6.6 millionin exchange for stepping down.
