Highlights

Mark Tritton is out at Bed Bath and Beyond (BBBY) as sales continue to slide and will be replaced by Sue Gove on an interim basis. BBBY shares are down over 80% in the past year and the company has faced increased pressure from activists. Tritton failed to last 3 years at the company having joined back in 2019.

Pinterest (PINS) CEO and founder Ben Silbermann announced that he would be stepping down as the CEO of the company, but remain executive chairman. Taking on the executive chairman role is a move that we’re increasingly seeing from founders of tech companies. Bill Ready will take over from Ben.

Hyperfine (HYPR) CEO Dave Scott is resigning just ~7 months after becoming a public company thru a DeSPAC transaction. Shares have fallen quickly hovering ~$2. It’s the latest quick management shakeup for a DeSPAC.
