Notable executive resignations amid turmoil
Former CEO of Hewlett-Packard
A sexual harassment investigation into allegations that Hurd made advances toward a female contractor - who was also an actress - also reportedly uncovered that Hurd had shared private company information with her. After the investigation, Hurd resigned. Soon after, he was hired by HP rival Oracle Corp. as co-president in a move that prompted HP to sue, claiming that such a move would give Oracle the trade secrets of HP.
