Solyndra CEO quits

Solyndra Inc. has asked a bankruptcy court to allow it to hire a bankruptcy expert following the departure of CEO Brian Harrison, who left the company on Oct. 7, according to a court filing.

Reuters reports Solyndra wants to appoint Todd Neilson of Berkeley Research Group LLC as its chief restructuring officer.

Neilson is a former FBI agent and served as a bankruptcy trustee for former world boxing champion Mike Tyson and others.

Former CEO Harrison last month refused to answer questions from lawmakers in Congress over the solar company's bankruptcy.
