NEW YORK — Gap Inc.’s search for a new chief executive is gathering speed — but it’s tough.
Finding a successor to Millard "Mickey" Drexler has proven to be a long and challenging search, considering the magnitude of the assignment and the shoes to fill. But sources said Wednesday the search is accelerating, with mounting speculation on new candidates from inside and outside the world of fashion retailing, and search officials are pressing to get the job done soon, before the holiday season when retailers are busiest and most difficult to lasso.
