Two Best Buy directors resign

New York -- Two directors of Best Buy Co. have resigned from the board of the retailer, the company disclosed in a regulatory filing Monday, the Wall Street Journal reported.

G. "Mike" Mikan, who served as Best Buy's interim CEO in the wake of CEO Brian Dunn’s resignation last April, has left the board to become president of ESL Investments Inc., the hedge fund run by Sears’ Edward Lampert. Mikan, whose appointment is effective Jan. 1, will report to Lampert, the firm said today in a statement.

Matthew H. Paull, Best Buy's lead independent director, is resigning but will remain on the board until the company’s  quarterly meeting in April, the Journal said.
