The Gap brand’s vice president and creative director, Dennis Leggett, a veteran of the chain, has departed after 14 years.
One source said Leggett became frustrated working at Gap, which has been struggling to regain market share and get more customers to shop its stores. A Gap spokeswoman had no further information on what triggered his departure or if he has a new job. Leggett was Gap brand’s second-highest-ranking marketing executive, next to Ivy Ross, executive vice president of marketing for the Gap brand and a former Disney Stores executive.
