FILE - In a March 3, 2010 file photo, Hewlett-Packard Company Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Mark Hurd speaks at the dedication ceremony of HP's customer service and technical support center in Conway, Ark. Best Buy's CEO Brian Dunn resigned on Tuesday, April 10, 2012, after the retailer's board launched an investigation into his "personal conduct." The 28-year Best Buy veteran joins a list of big-name CEOs who stepped down or were fired after getting into trouble for their actions outside of the corner office. The alleged offenses _ and the punishments _ have varied widely from lying to cheating. Hurd, former CEO of Hewlett-Packard Co., for instance, resigned and received a severance package worth $30 million after an internal investigation by the company uncovered some expense-account irregularities.
