No Drop in this Shop
HSN — formerly Home Shopping Network — still runs second to QVC in the TV shopping game, but CEO Mindy Grossman has made the company competitive by injecting a heavy dose of style, taste and energy. This year's financial results continued to build on Grossman's success since taking over in 2006 — even as other retailers continue to struggle, HSN continues to post impressive results. Through three quarters of 2011, HSN's sales grew 7% over the previous year to more than $2.2 billion. Grossman had previous successful stints at Polo Ralph Lauren and Nike.
