Managing child’s play

Gary White takes the playground indoors and Gymboree's profits upward

of stores and operations. In 1996, he was handpicked by Stuart Moldaw, chairman of Gymboree, to be the company’s senior vice president and chief operating officer.

Looking forward, White’s Gymboree agenda includes a new apparel line for older children, ages six through 12, called “Zutopia” to be launched this spring, and

additional franchises in Japan. He has also instituted the first “kid-friendly” Gymboree board of directors, which has five seats reserved for children ages four and five. This forward, innovative thinking proves that Gymboree is in very capable hands and White will soon have the most toys in the sandbox.
