San Francisco, 4 Nov : Fast food giant McDonald’s has fired its CEO Steve Easterbrook after its board of directors found that he “demonstrated poor judgment” in a consensual relationship with an unidentified employee, the media has reported.

McDonald’s Corporation on Sunday announced that its Board of Directors has named Chris Kempczinski, most recently President, McDonald’s USA, as President and CEO, effective immediately. Kempczinski has also been elected to the McDonald’s Board of Directors.

“Kempczinski succeeds Steve Easterbrook, who has separated from the company following the board’s determination that he violated company policy and demonstrated poor judgment involving a recent consensual relationship with an employee,” the fast food giant said in a statement.

According to MarketWatch, Easterbrook sent an e-mail with a memo to employees acknowledging the relationship and said it was a mistake, Efe news agency reported. “Given the values of the company, I agree with the board that it is time for me to move on,” he said in the letter.

McDonald’s said it voted to approve Easterbrook’s departure last Friday after conducting a thorough analysis of the situation, and his compensation details will be known on Monday after the submission of documents to federal authorities.
