Bed Bath & Beyond replaces CEO as sales slump

This post was originally published on this site

Shares fell 9% after the company reported a 23% slide in quarterly comparable sales. It named independent director Sue Gove in place of Tritton on an interim basis and also replaced its chief merchandising officer.

The company had in March reached an agreement with activist investor and billionaire Ryan Cohen, appointing three new directors, two of them to the committee exploring options for the baby products chain.

Cohen, who is also chairman of GameStop (NYSE:GME), had earlier said that Tritton was paid far more than what top bosses earned at far bigger retailers.
