Solyndra CEO Brian Harrison Resigns

DOVER, Del. — The chairman and CEO of a California solar energy company that sought bankruptcy protection after receiving a half-billion-dollar loan guarantee from the Obama administration has resigned.

Solyndra Inc. said in papers filed in Delaware bankruptcy court Wednesday that Brian Harrison resigned last Friday.

Attorneys for Fremont, Calif.-based Solyndra said Harrison’s resignation was contemplated even before the bankruptcy filing and was “consistent with the company’s budget and status of its wind-down effort.”

Solyndra provided few other details in its court filing. A company spokesman did not immediately return a telephone request for comment Thursday.
