A resignation letter – [Groupon’s Andrew Mason steps down as CEO]

Andrew Mason stepped down as CEO of Groupon – and posted this letter announcing his firing by the Board.  He writes with candor “After four and a half intense and wonderful years as CEO of Groupon, I’ve decided that I’d like to spend more time with my family. Just kidding – I was fired today. If you’re wondering why… you haven’t been paying attention. From controversial metrics in our S1 to our material weakness to two quarters of missing our own expectations and a stock price that’s hovering around one quarter of our listing price, the events of the last year and a half speak for themselves. As CEO, I am accountable.”

If only the Pope was as honest.
