After three years as GC of Symbol Technologies Inc., Peter Lieb can finally breathe easy. Having doused fires from the moment he arrived at the scandal-plagued company, Lieb jumped to NCR Corp. in May.

At Symbol, based in Holtsville, N.Y., he negotiated a settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission and a nonprosecution agreement with the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York. This was no small feat at a company where the previous GC, Leonard Goldner, pleaded guilty to orchestrating an illegal stock options scheme, and the former CEO remains on the lam in Sweden. (At press time Goldner awaited sentencing. Other former executives also pleaded guilty, while still others await trial.)
