Banana Republic Announces Executive Changes

The creative director for Gap's Banana Republic brand is stepping down after 18 months in that role. The move announced on October 8, 2015 comes as the chain, which also operates Old Navy and Gap stores, reported a sharp drop for a key revenue measure in September for the upscale brand. It marked the third-straight month of declines that were all in the double digits. Marissa Webb, who was hired to re-energize the Banana Republic brand and is known for her oversized jackets, will transition into a creative-adviser role "affording her more time to focus on her own collection".
