Best Buy Says Chief Marketing Officer Barry Judge Resigns

May 02, 2012

Best Buy Co. (BBY:US) said Barry Judge resigned as chief marketing officer of the world’s largest consumer electronics retailer.

Judge is “leaving the company to explore the next chapter in his career,” Greg Hitt, a spokesman for Richfield, Minnesota-based Best Buy, said today by e-mail. He declined to say how Judge’s duties will be assigned other than that the retailer will tap “the skills and experiences of other additional senior leaders.”

Best Buy is searching for a new chief executive officer following last month’s resignation of Brian Dunn at the outset of a board investigation of his personal conduct. Judge was named head of marketing in February 2008.

Best Buy slipped 1.6 percent to $22.10 at 4:15 p.m. in New York. The shares have dropped 5.4 percent this year.
