    Check out this article..The Gap has hired goldman to look at options like selling off the Company. Xmas was another down season.

    Re: Is the Gap for Sale? Pressler punts.

    From your article:

    ``He'll not be the leader of the company six months from now,'' said Katz, who helps manage more than $1.6 billion in assets at New York-based Matrix, including 2.3 million Gap shares. ``The critical piece for Gap's success has been the right merchandise. He's not been able to do that. He did a great job getting the finances under control. He's not the right person now.''
    Any other front desk jobs available at the Disneyland Hotel?

    Same story: corporate hatchet man - not someone who knows what the public wants/needs/desires. Almost destroyed Disneyland, just may destroy The Gap instead.

    He'll just get picked up by another company. Execs just shuffle around. Once you're in the club, you're in. I saw it happen when the exec staff went from reel.com to pets.com. Killed them both.
