RadiumOne Fires CEO

Gurbaksh Chahal gone after months-long controversy over abuse


RadiumOne's board of directors last night voted to fire chief executive officer Gurbaksh Chahal after he pleaded guilty to charges of physically abusing his girlfriend last summer.

The San Francisco-based marketing software company announced the move today, within hours of Chahal publishing a blog post, dubbed Can You Handle The Truth?, while evidently attempting to save his job. Chief operating officer Bill Lonergan has been named RadiumOne's new CEO.

Chahal was reportedly caught on security video striking his girlfriend 117 times in about a half hour on Aug.
