Mickey Drexler is leaving J.Crew for good after 15 years at the company.
"It's been a privilege to have had more than 15 years with J.Crew Group both as CEO and chairman of the board. J.Crew and Madewell have been long admired as iconic American brands, and I am thankful to have been a part of their evolution throughout the years," Drexler said in a statement to the press on Friday. "I look forward to working with the Office of the CEO and the board as a strategic advisor to help support J.Crew's long term success."
The news comes at a tricky time for the brand, which currently finds itself without a CEO.

In a statement to the press at the time, Brett hinted that clashes with the board may have been the reason behind his departure.
