Hours after announcing the resignation of its CEO, Brian Dunn, a Best Buy spokesperson said his personal conduct was under investigation prior to his departure.

"Certain issues were brought to the board's attention regarding Mr. Dunn's personal conduct, unrelated to the company's operations or financial controls, and an audit committee investigation was initiated," Claire Koeneman, Best Buy spokeswoman who works for H+K Strategies, said in an e-mailed statement Tuesday. "Prior to the completion of the investigation, Mr. Dunn chose to resign."

Dunn, who was with the company for 28 years, began as a sales associate.
