Mindy Grossman

Overseeing a $4 billion direct-to- consumer retail portfolio that includes HSN and the Cornerstone divisions is only part of Grossman’s job. She also constantly inspires others. Through innovative campaigns and strategic collaborations with the likes of DreamWorks, All Recipes, and financial guru Suze Orman, Grossman and HSN have redefined the shopping experience as “boundary-less retail.” Due to her efforts, dozens of homegrown entrepreneurs including Joy Mangano—the real-life woman behind the film “Joy”— have built their brands on HSN. It seems most of them have heeded the same advice Grossman would give her younger self: “Believe in yourself. People may doubt your decisions or question the risks that you take, but nothing will prove more important than the transformational power of believing in yourself.“
