“MINNEAPOLIS, October 24, 2012 – In a move to make Best Buy more responsive to business opportunities and challenges, the company announced today a new leadership organization for its U.S. operations. The senior-most layer of the U.S. operation is being removed; resulting in a leaner structure intended to improve the company’s agility.
“One thing I have learned in helping turn companies around is that a business needs to have a nimble organization,” said Best Buy President and CEO Hubert Joly. “Our new organization will help build a closer connection to our customers and front line employees, as well as accelerate our transformation.”
