With more than 300 stores, nearly two billion dollars in sales and even the First Lady as a fan, J.Crew has transformed from a once flailing, lackluster brand to a fashion force. Leading J.Crew is CEO Millard "Mickey" Drexler, known for his intuitive sense of what the public craves and his ability to lift troubled companies to new heights. Since taking over J.Crew in 2003, Drexler has successfully introduced designer quality clothing for the masses—driving the company's revenues up 170%.
"J.Crew and the Man Who Dressed America" premieres Thursday, May 24th at 10 PM ET/PT on CNBC. Join the conversation #InsideJCrew or visit the facebook.com/cnbcsmart
