    Intel CEO ousted after consensual relationship with employee

    Lots of companies are implementing these agreements, not sure how I feel about them all...

    Intel CEO Brian Krzanich is out as CEO and chairman of the board following an investigation into a "consensual relationship with an Intel employee," the company announced Thursday.

    Chief financial officer Robert Swan will step in as interim CEO, effective immediately. The board has already begun the search for a permanent replacement.

    "An ongoing investigation by internal and external counsel has confirmed a violation of Intel's non-fraternization policy, which applies to all managers," the company said in a statement. "Given the expectation that all employees will respect Intel's values and adhere to the company's code of conduct, the Board has accepted Mr. Krzanich's resignation."

    Krzanich violated a policy that said he could not have a relationship with either a direct or indirect report, people familiar with the situation told CNBC. The relationship ended and took place "some time back," the people said. It's unclear with whom Krzanich had the relationship.

    Has no one ever heard of the wise old adage, "Never dip your pen into company ink?"

    True. But I do think work is where a lot of people meet these days. Its a fine line, but also dangerous. I imagine at some point all companies will do this. Companies dont want to deal with the drama if there is a break up.

    Lawyers run everything on the premise of the worst case scenario. CEO knew the risk he was taking.

    Was the woman involved also fired? If not, why not?

    Love is more important than anything, even rules.

    I'm curious if he was offered to end the relationship (falling in line with policy) or else quit. And he chose to quit. He did resign after all.

    I hope he thinks she was worth it.

    I'd like to see a photo of the loving couple!

    Wow- that smarts. They may or may not have met at work.
    People that high usually do not reveal whom they work. That applies to both, and sexual attraction being what it is, plus, it could have happened and been over long time before light of day.
    Damn

    Here
    Well, if he was CEO of one of the nation's top companies and resigned based on implementation of the rules he oversaw as CEO, then while he broke the rules (love makes people do all kinds of crazy things, including kill, which thankfully, was not the case here), he also lived by the consequence. As ex-CEO of Intel and having resigned based on breaking the rule that he did, it is likely he will find another job without a great deal of trouble and either resume the relationship he had with the Intel employee or move on and not repeat the same mistake again.

    Since this is a political forum website, I am interested to know if anyone might relate this to the leadership of our nation, under the current POTUS and a lack of accountability for pretty much ignoring any rules regarding emoluments, especially in relation to his personal history and the case recently brought regarding his foundation and an admittance by that foundation for breaking the rules regarding "self-dealing". Other concerns are contradictory statements, denials then admittance, because of not being able to totally avoid evidence or things like required financial reports that are no longer information that is so easily hidden behind the wall of a private corporation or attorney client privilege.

    Considering this resignation and the resignations of all manner of people who have had allegations on all levels of sexual conduct, consensual and non-consensual relations and equal or worse (in some cases) allegations made about the POTUS, when is he to be taken to task for them, like a POTUS was taken to task, 20 years ago?
