Several months after its logo disaster, the Gap has booted Marka Hansen, head of its North American division. It wasn't just the universally panned logo change that did her in, though; the Post also points to lukewarm holiday sales. Hansen had been with the company for 24 years. When she took over four years ago, she promised to add some edge and sex appeal to the chain's style, but at least one insider says she was just too conservative to pull it off. [NYP]
