The CEO of outdoor gear retailer REI is stepping down after an inquiry into a personal relationship that appeared to be a conflict of interest. Jerry Stritzke, who has been
president and CEO since 2013, will leave the company March 16. “An outside law firm had been looking into Stritzke's relationship — described by REI as 'personal and consensual' —
with the head of another group that operates in the outdoor space,” according to USA Today. No financial improprieties were uncovered during the investigation.
