NEW YORK — Laura Lendrum, who served as president of Gucci America for nearly two years, has left the firm. Lendrum resigned to pursue other opportunities.
The executive joined Gucci in 1997, and moved to Yves Saint Laurent America as president in 2001. She was named Gucci America president in 2010, supporting the development of the business here. During that time, Gucci opened a number of stores, including an 11,000-square-foot unit in Crystals at CityCenter in Las Vegas and a 6,445-square-foot boutique at NorthPark Center in Dallas.

"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. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
