Washington (AP) - The chief executive of fast food chain McDonalds has been dismissed because of a relationship with him under his official duties. With the relationship Steve Easterbrook had "bad judgment" on the day and violated rules of the company, McDonald's justified the decision of the Supervisory Board. His successor will therefore be Chris Kempczinski, who was previously responsible for the US business with its approximately 14 000 branches.
