Writing a paper on capitalism in America, looking for Example-Will give best answer!?

In my paper, I'm talking about how a board of directors can pressure an executive into being much more shareholder and short term driven than customer and employee satisfaction driven. I am looking for a well known company to use as an example as to where an exec stood up against the board and was relieved/fired/walked out on the company.

P.S. Please don't use Steve Jobs in 85 for reasons I don't feel like explaining.

Thanks, will give best answer!

Update:

Will also accept vice versa examples! ie. exec stock driven, BoD not
