Best Buy‘s board is probing allegations that the electronics retailer’s CEO Corie Barry had an inappropriate romantic relationship with another company executive.
The board had received an anonymous letter that said Barry years-long relationship with former Best Buy senior vice president Karl Sanft before she became CEO in June 2019. Sanft did not immediately respond to CNBC for comment.
The electronics retailer’s board retained outside counsel to investigate the allegations.
