You would definitely want Santa to check his list twice if you see your name in this.
According to Sydney Finkelstein, Dartmouth’s College Tuck School of Business professor, the next list of men won’t be getting a “Best Boss in the World” mug this Holiday season:
1. Brian Dunn (Best Buy): If pulling a Bill Clinton and being involved in an office affair scandal wasn’t reason enough, he resigned after declining stocks, poor market share, and bad investments.
2. Aubrey McClendon, the CEO of Chesapeake Energy (CHK) who apparently has trouble keeping his company’s finances and his own apart. According to Reuters, McClendon borrowed as much as $1.1 billion over three years in undisclosed loans against his stake in thousands of company wells and ran a $200 million oil-and-gas hedge fund on the side, an “obvious conflict of interest,” Finkelstein says. Use of the company jet (and company employees) for personal purposes and a corporate sponsorship deal for Oklahoma City Thunder while McClendon was an owner of the basketball team also didn’t help. Jim Gipson, a spokesman for Chesapeake Energy, declined to comment.
