Geek Squad's senior VP to exit Best Buy


The top executive who oversees Geek Squad is leaving Best Buy after nearly four years on the job, the Star Tribune reports.

Company spokeswoman Paula Baldwin confirmed George Sherman, senior vice president for services, will exit the Richfield-based consumer electronics giant.

“We wish him well,” Baldwin wrote in an email to the newspaper.

Geek Squad founder Robert Stephens left Best Buy a year ago.

Last summer, Target started featuring Best Buy's Geek Squad agents in more than two-dozen stores in Denver.

The Business Journal reported the Minneapolis-based retailer recently expanded the partnership to 20 stores in Missouri.
