Another HSN refugee has landed at ShopNBC.
The No. 3 home shopping network has appointed Teresa Harris, a beauty merchandising veteran formerly with HSN, as the company’s director of beauty.
Harris will oversee the merchandising efforts for ShopNBC’s beauty category, which includes a growing line of hair and skin care, cosmetics, fragrances, and bath and spa products. She will spearhead the acquisition and development of new beauty brands as well as strengthen and maintain relationships with existing vendors.
Harris was with HSN for 13 years. As its director of merchandising for beauty, she was responsible for managing a $100 million cosmetics and skincare business while overseeing over 360 health, fitness and wellness concepts.
While at HSN, she also led product and new business development strategies, successfully acquiring brands such as Wei East, Clean, Dr. Susan Evans, TruLift, Brazilian Peel, as well as creating the Serious Skincare Instatox line (we have that in our beauty war chest). Harris began her career with HSN as a planner.
“We are delighted to have Teresa join our team as Director of Beauty,” Annette Repasch, ShopNBC’s chief merchandising officer, said in a canned statement. “Teresa has a proven track record of success in building signature brands and a beauty pedigree that lends itself to improving and driving the category. We look forward to her contributions.”
