Sharper Image names CEO

From the Associated Press

Sharper Image Corp. named a crisis management expert as its new chief executive Thursday, marking the third time in 17 months that the struggling specialty retailer has ushered in a new leader as it tries to survive a worsening sales slump.

The San Francisco-based company brought in Ron Conway, who runs a New York-based turnaround firm, as its CEO less than a year after hiring direct marketing veteran Steven Lightman to steer the 183-store chain.

A company spokesman declined to say whether Lightman resigned or was fired.
