Chris Hogan’s divorce and Ramsey Solutions
An investigation from Religion News Service earlier this year reported on Chris Hogan’s alleged extra marital affairs and the company’s handling of them.
RNS reported that after Chris Hogan’s then- wife Melissa Hogan alleged that he had been unfaithful, the company set up a “restoration plan” for their marriage. When Melissa objected, she was told that she “lacked hope for her marriage’s future.”
Dave Ramsey did not fire Hogan at the time, and in a staff meeting it was reported that he spoke about the situation, saying:
“Looking at it, it was messy but there weren’t clear lines. And we said, OK, not because we are taking up for Chris because he’s getting ready to go on book tour but because there was not a clear line. If there was a clear line, we would have taken the hit and canceled the book tour. But there wasn’t. And Chris wouldn’t be here anymore.”
Although unconfirmed, these could be the personal issues that Chris Hogan alluded to as the reason he is leaving.
