Sharper Image Promotes de Bellegarde

NEW YORK-Federico de Bellegarde has been promoted to senior vice president of licensing at The Sharper Image.

Previously vice president of licensing, de Bellegarde continues to oversee the company's licensing efforts in this newly created position. He reports directly to Joey Gabbay, the company's president and chief executive officer of Bluestar Alliance, one of Sharper Image's joint-venture owners.
