Jeff Rudes seems to prefer being an entrepreneur rather than a manager.
Rudes on Tuesday stepped down as chief executive officer of J Brand, the premium denim leader he founded nearly a decade ago. Numerous sources said his departure had more to do with his entrepreneurial nature than with the difficulties confronting the premium sector in recent seasons.
