Farmington Hills, Mich. – Camelot Venture Group, the license holders and operators of the Sharperimage.com ecommerce business as well as the catalog business has hired Mark Anthony as senior vp and general merchandise manager responsible for developing, sourcing and merchandising products.
The site and catalog will carry product from both Sharper Image supplier licensees and non-licensees.
Anthony most recently served as operational vp/gmm at Brookstone, spending 12 years overseeing all web and catalog merchandising.
Camelot – a private investment group that focuses on online, catalogs and retail among other areas – re-launched the Sharper Image website three months ago. Its first catalogs will drop in time for the June Father’s Day holiday.
Anthony is charged with sourcing “unique, innovative products from best in class partners to provide the Sharper Image customer the selection, quality and experience they’ve come to expect from the iconic brand,” according to the company.
The Sharper Image brand is owned by a joint venture between Bluestar Alliance, Hilco Consumer Capital and Gordon Brothers. Its licensee for home textiles is London Luxury.
