No. Any time a senior official or corporate type “steps down,” it’s to protect their resume. They didn’t quit, they didn’t vote for the bad thing, they didn’t lose, they didn’t oversee a 10% YoY decrease in sales in steak as veganism overtook the country, whatever - it’s entirely a calculation to keep a resume that is only associated with success.

And I’m not saying that to be partisan here - I’ve seen politicians on both sides escape scandal, as well as some corporate officers avoid litigation, by “taking time to spend with family,” etc.,. I am not suggesting PR was facing scandal - AFAIK his maneuver was just staying ahead of headwinds.
