Barneys New York has double trouble — losing its chief executive while struggling to get its expansion strategy on track in a tough U.S. economy.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
