san francisco - dawn robertson, president of gap inc's old navy brand, has resigned after a year and a half on the job. i don't know if i'm shocked by this.....i think i'm not surprised that a ceo has left gap inc - like the new student at a grade-school cafetaria - the company just doesn't know where it belongs. is it crazy, cool and chic? or corporate, comfortable and conservative? either way the company - and stockholders - are not content. that has to be one of the reasons which drove robertson to quit after 16 months. but i'm only speculating....what do i know? i'm only a fashion blogger, right? tom wyatt, president of gap's outlet division (is that doing any better than old navy!?) is now the acting president of old navy while a search is conducted. i say gap should switch it up and get an old school hustler from 125th street in harlem. you never know!?
