Search committee tasked with finding new Best Buy CEO

MINNEAPOLIS — Best Buy may be dealing with all of the negative attention surrounding the resignation of Brian Dunn, but "the show must go on," as they say, and the search has begun for a new CEO. The company has announced the members of its CEO search committee. The company said the committee will oversee a global search process to identify internal and external candidates, including current interim CEO Mike Mikan.

As part of Best Buy’s commitment to transparency, the company said the board will also publicly announce the selected search firm and will post the position on the company website. The final search firm selection will be announced in the next few weeks.

Kathy Higgins Victor, who also serves as chairwoman of the nominating, corporate governance and public policy committee and a member of the compensation and human resources committee, will chair the search committee.
