J. Crew CEO Millard “Mickey” Drexler uses a Blackberry Bold 9900. Why does it matter? Well since he is on the Apple Board, you would think he would be more likely to use an Iphone. Apparently not. Since Blackberry is geared towards the Business market, it makes sense that someone in a high powered position would utilize a Blackberry. There is a quick video after the break that features Mickey, its part of a documentary about a fabric mill(nothing to do with Blackberries). It’s just to show you that he does use a Blackberry.
hit the break for the video
Filming a documentary on Mickey Drexler and J.Crew, CNBC visits the Albini Group mill in Bergamo Italy, where Thomas Mason fabrics are made. Silvio Albini, fifth generation to run the mill was showing Mickey Drexler (and CNBC’s David Faber) how it all works. While filming, Drexler noticed a sign on the factory wall that reminds him of a customer email and he springs into action.
