"Now is the appropriate time to put New York & Company's next generation of leadership in place,” says Crystal. “Greg is a talented merchant and an outstanding choice for president of our company. His track record of success, along with his approachable and collaborative leadership style, gives me great confidence in his ability to be successful at New York & Co. I look forward to working closely with Greg over the next nine months to ensure a seamless transition."
