The CEO of Best Buy, Corie Barry, is being investigated by Best Buy due to misconduct allegations against her. The company received an anonymous letter claiming that Barry had an inappropriate romantic relationship with an executive in the workplace prior to being given the Best Buy CEO title. Further details regarding the allegations have not been provided at this time. Barry worked as Chief Financial and Strategic Transformation Officer before she took on the role of CEO at Best Buy.
Best Buy is still unaware of the letter author’s identity, but they are hoping the individual will come forward in the future. The company is ensuring the review process will be completely confidential if the author does step forward and claim the letter. Barry is giving her full cooperation as the Audit Committee of the Board and outside counsel conduct the thorough review of the allegations.
