Solyndra CEO Brian Harrison steps down

Date: 14 October 2011
Solyndra CEO Brian Harrison, who refused to answer questions from Congress about his solar startup's high-profile bankruptcy, has left the company, according to a new court filing.

Harrison stepped down on Friday, Solyndra reported in a bankruptcy court document filed late Tuesday. The company said Harrison left "as scheduled," but didn't elaborate. A Solyndra spokesman could not be reached for an explanation.

To replace Harrison, Solyndra wants to hire R. Todd Neilson, who served as bankruptcy trustee for boxer Mike Tyson and rap impresario Marion "Suge" Knight. Neilson has a background in forensic accounting, including a stint with the FBI as a special agent on white-collar crime cases.
