For a CEO to leave with such haste, it's either a sexual assault case that he's trying to quieten or he knows something the rest don't and knows it's time to abandon ship.

Just speculating...

There has to be more reasons to resign than just those two alone.
  • Drug alcohol related issues.
  • Marital issues effecting job performance.

  • Tired of playing a competitive game.

OCZ makes great SSDs and when they used to make RAM they were good too. I hope the change of command does not affect their quilty.

Or a higher paycheck... although sexual assault makes for a much better rumor. I wonder if it has anything to do with him spending so much time with Kate Middleton.

CEOs get passed around like NFL coaches. For all we know the story next week will be that he just accepted a position with someone else.
