    Nothing wrong with posting rumors, as long as they're identified as such. It'll be interesting to see if he is indeed on the out.

    And welcome - please feel free to jump in and contribute any time, anywhere!

      Cynthia Harris is also now at Gap Inc., having tagged along with Pressler. I work at the store in San Francisco, and he's in quite often--acutally a really nice guy!

        There was a big article in the LA Times last Sunday and it's no rumor. The board of Directors at The Gap is not at all happy with Pressler. Seems he pulled the same trick he did with Disney. Took over after all kinds of cool things had already been approved and budgeted and he moved in and took the credit (like with the Disney Stores) then when those ideas ran thier course, he had/has nothing. It will be interesting to see how long it takes for Gap to lose this loose cannon. Wonder who will have him next?

          This rumor is picking up steam--

          From the LA Times this week:
          The vexing trend at the store level has some analysts speculating about the boardroom and whether Chief Executive Pressler's days are numbered.

            Maybe they can start selling plushes, and set up small carts across the country from which people can buy their clothes on the sidewalks?

              Unfortunately this shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who has really looked at what he has accomplished (or not accomplished.)

              He seems to do a great job leveraging off of the final good items that leaders before him have put into place!

                I hope this doesn't mean he's coming back to Disney...

                  The rumor is going very strong, because I found THIS on the internet.

                    See? This is what happens when you put huge lemonade stands in a clothing store.

                      Paul will know what to do. He'll put khakis on hiatus, open up a fiber-optics dominated line of clothing that will make wearers look like mutant pixies, and make huge promises about "the store of tomorrow" that will quickly fail any of the myriad harsh conditions that are the realities of daily operation.

                      If all else fails, perhaps he could set up a cheap annual pass to the Gap?

                        This it what happens to all short-term free-agent types eventually. Let this be a warning to others out there.

                        Schadenfreude!

                            As I was fighting the crowds at the park last weekend I thought to myself, you know when Pressler was around the park was never this crowded - perhaps they should bring him back to Disney to help aleviate the congestion...

                              The only scary thing about all this is now Wiess' job is open. I mean I highly doubt there isn't some mis-guided jerk in Disney who is hoping he gets his spot back.

                              And I mean the answer is so simple, all Paul needs to do is set up Leave a Legacy modeling sections in all the stores. In$tant ca$h.
