Mindy Meads, Aeropostale Inc.’s co-chief executive officer, herself chose to leave the company, market sources said. The disclosure Wednesday that Meads’ last day at the retailer is Dec. 15 surprised the investment community.
Meads could not be reached for comment about the reasons for her departure. An Aéropostale spokesman said Meads will “pursue other interests,” and that she’s leaving the company with a “solid infrastructure” of merchants.
