A sharp-eyed tipster saw this story on the Bloomberg site in which a spokesperson from Hill + Knowlton Strategies, Claire Koeneman, the firm’s EVP and head of the financial comms practice, responded to questions about the abrupt resignation of Best Buy’s CEO Brian Dunn. Koeneman was named H+K’s financial practice lead back in June.
We contacted H+K about the story and while the agency confirmed that it is working with the troubled consumer electronics retailer following the CEO’s departure, it wouldn’t give any further detail.
When Dunn’s resignation was first announced, the company said it was due to the need for new leadership. However, now the media is reporting that there’s an investigation into his “personal conduct.”
