The Legend Of Sharper Image


<p>Much of the success of Richard Thalheimer and The Sharper Image – the $750M, 200 store retail behemoth he founded in 1977 and led as CEO until 2007 – can be traced to Richard’s prenatural ability to decide what people wanted often before they knew it themselves. This intuitive knack to drive market trends combined with his lawyer’s precision, a healthy dose of entrepreneurial drive and an eternally playful outlook, converge to give Richard Thalheimer the well-deserved title, “America’s Genius of Retail Marketing”.</p>
