GameStop Shares Hold Losses After Reports Of CEO Replacement Search

As a reminder, GameStop announced last week that the Chewy co-founder will become its chairman after the company’s annual shareholder meeting, which is scheduled for June 9.

GameStop also said Thursday in a securities filing that other new board nominees include Larry Cheng, the first investor in Chewy, and Yang Xu, an executive at Kraft Heinz.

Quite a re-shuffle.
