There is 1 comment on Millard “Mickey” Drexler Honored

  1. I worked at Banana Republic, a Gap division , during most of the years Mickey Drexler was either President or CEO. During my tenure there, from 1991 to 2001, I saw many wonderful things happen. I became dismayed with retail, as I am a customer service “freak”, and saw the emphasis of our company begin to change. I went on to work in social work, and still found myself “selling” the best possible solutions for my clients in tough positions and places in their lives.

    I too have a department store background, and felt similarly to Mickey, in that I wanted a more personal experience with the people who entered the doors of my store. I left to work for Williams Sonoma, but wanted to work for Banana Republic in 1991 when they were just beginning to establish themselves as a brand. Oh what fun we had!

    I graduated BU, CLA, 1980, and now BOTH my kids go there.

    I just left my job at a family planning clinic after 10 years, and would love to work for Mickey again!

    Congratulations, sir, on a job well done!
