DEQ's CEO Earle Hall is out.

To many this is good news.
Note that DEQ's CFO Francois Proulx is the interim CEO. Good news also.

As a shareholder, I have to say that there has to be more to this story.

There's quite a bit.

That article makes it sound like a mutually agreed changing of the guard.

Dan's comments, vague as they were, makes it seem like he got shit-canned.

Being in the industry, as well as having his game with them, I'm sure Dan knows a LOT more to this story, but can't spill any beans...

It was an involuntary resignation. He resigned under the threat of being dismissed, which would have been a [worse] black eye for DEQ. It is always done this way at that level [CEO or CFO level].

Earle didn't leave to head another company,
no one (yet) from another company came in to be the head DEQ,
and the CFO stepped in as CEO, on an interim basis to take the helm.

I don't know much about DEQ and I've never heard or Mr. Hall but I do know a fluff piece when I see it. Everyone is singing his praises just a little too much. The guy's staying on for a transitional period and remaining on the Board of Directors.

Sounds like a golden parachute or golden handshake to me.

Yes. Things were handled gracefully.
