NORTH MANKATO, MN—A struggle in the executive offices of commercial printer Taylor Corp. has led to the resignation of CEO Jean Taylor, who is the founder's daughter, and prompted human resources head Donna DiMenna to leave the company as well, several sources reported.
A battle in the executive suite at the Taylor Corp. has resulted in the departure of the founder's daughter, CEO Jean Taylor, according to a former human resources chief who also left. The HR executive, Donna DiMenna, said she quit after three top male executives sought to oust her and also scale back Jean Taylor's role at the Eagan company founded by Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor.
Glen Taylor nixed the coup attempt, DiMenna said, but also declined to sack the men behind it. That led her to resign about 10 days ago.
