Sharper Image Corp. named a crisis management expert as its new chief executive, marking the third time in 17 months that the retailer has had a new leader.

The company named 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 Sharper Image's 183-store chain.

Lightman replaced Sharper Image Chairman Jerry Levin, who temporarily stepped in as CEO after the company ousted founder Richard Thalheimer from the job.

Sharper Image gave no reason for Lightman's departure in a statement announcing Conway as its new CEO. Company spokesman Tersh Barber declined to say whether Lightman resigned or was fired. (AP)
