HSN CEO ranked for creativity by 'Fast company'
HSN CEO Mindy Grossman ranked No. 91 in Fast Company magazine's recent listing of the 100 most creative people in business. Her push to partner with Hollywood to broaden the network's audience was cited. For example, she created a 72-hour "shopathon," selling custom bangles, bedding, tunics and tea sets similar to those seen in the movie Eat, Pray Love. Others on the creativity list in the June issue include Wadah Khanfar, director of Al Jazeera; Conan O'Brien; Hunger Games trilogy author Suzanne Collins; and the chief of the Surui Amazon tribe in Brazil, who is working with Google employees to record illegal logging.
