The top post at Heelys is vacant for the second time in a year.

The company announced on Tuesday that CEO Donald Carroll, who was appointed in May 2008, had resigned from the company. Carroll replaced Michael Staffaroni, who stepped down in February 2008.

Former CFO Michael Hessong has been named interim president and CEO until a replacement is found.

As previously reported in Footwear News, Skechers made a play last August to buy Heelys for about $143 million, but the offer was rejected.
