Seems like a pretty bad decision. Who knows though. Maybe he's making a significant amount more and will surely get a huge bonus when they declare bankruptcy.

I suspect that was the plan.

Wasn't he the guy that changed their name to JCP and had them stop doing weekly sales and promotions?

Reminds me a lot of the changing of the guard at the Big Box Book Store.
New guys would come in with great plans, most of whom had never sold books in their life, then would bail with expensive golden parachutes.
After four five of those the company went bankrupt.
Big surprise.
