HSN adds two execs

Television shopping network HSN last week named Steve Armstrong executive vp and general counsel, where he will oversee all aspects of HSN's domestic and international legal affairs. He will report to Mark Bozek, president and ceo.

Armstrong was most recently senior vp and general counsel of Agilera and before that vp and general counsel of Samsonite. He has also been a partner at the national law firms Baker & Hostetler and Paul, Hastings.

"I am pleased to welcome Steve to the HSN family," said Bozek. "His dedication to excellence and depth of legal expertise and experience will be key as HSN continues to build its various television, Internet and catalog businesses."

I'm Tom Russell and have worked at Furniture/Today since August 2003. Since then, I have covered the international side of the business from a logistics and sourcing standpoint. Since then, I also have visited several furniture trade shows and manufacturing plants in Asia, which has helped me gain perspective about the industry in that part of the world. As I continue covering the import side of the business, I look forward to building on that knowledge base through conversations with industry officials and future overseas plant tours. From time to time, I will file news and other industry perspectives online and, as always, welcome your response to these Web postings.
