QVC Promotes Mathias Bork to CEO of QVC Germany
QVC today announced the appointment of Mathias Bork to the position of CEO of QVC Germany, effective January 1, 2015. Bork will be responsible for overseeing QVC's operations and growth in the Germany market, succeeding Steve Hofmann, CEO of QVC Europe, who has held the role of interim CEO of QVC Germany since the end of 2013. Bork will continue to report to Hofmann.
"As we continue to expand globally, our nearly $9 billion business requires a leadership team that is agile, insightful and ready to move with our customers in an increasingly global and connected world," said Hofmann. "During his five years as Chief Merchandising Officer of QVC Germany, Mathias has consistently demonstrated keen business acumen and leadership, and I'm confident his expertise will help solidify QVC's position as a leading multiplatform retailer in Germany."
Germany is currently QVC's largest business in Europe and its second largest business outside of the United States. In 2014, QVC Germany was named the best online shop according to the "ServiceAtlas Online-Shops 2014" survey by ServiceValue GmbH, and last year the business was recognized as "Germany's Most Customer-Oriented Service Provider."
Bork has more than 25 years of experience in the retail industry, having worked in both German and international positions throughout his career. Since joining QVC Germany in 2009 as Chief Merchandising & Sales Officer, Bork has collaborated with many members of the international executive leadership team to execute key priorities and aspects of QVC's business inside and outside of his direct areas of responsibility.
Prior to joining QVC, Bork was a member of the Management Board at Home Shopping Europe and has held prominent roles at prestigious retailers. He will continue to be based at QVC's Germany headquarters in Dusseldorf.
In addition to reaching a German audience of 41 million homes, QVC reaches more than 300 million homes worldwide, including the United States, Japan, Italy, United Kingdom and China. In 2015, QVC will increase its global presence with the launch of QVC in France

QVC's Lisa Robertson Leaves Network After 20 Years: Viewer Favourite To Take On 'New Challenge'
QVC host Lisa Robertson thanked viewers for their support during a two hour farewell special on the network, and told them to expect "new challenges" from her in the future.
For two decades, Robertson has been the most trusted name and face on the QVC home shopping network and became fast friends with designers like Isaac Mizrahi, whom she featured regularly on her show.
She has hosted a myriad of specials, but most recently has helmed several segments titled "The Lisa Robertson Show" and "Friday Night Beauty."
Robertson was also one of the top sellers on the channel, with viewers trusting her advice on everything from beauty products to clothing styles.
After selling some of her favorite items from brands like Dennis Basso, Philosophy and Laura Geller during her last show, Robertson was feted by fellow hosts, vendors and fans.
Robertson's emotions got the better of her during her final moments on the channel.
"Thank you so much for joining us," an emotional Robertson stated. "That's all I can talk now."
The former Miss Tennessee thanked fans on her QVC blog for their support the past 20 years.
"I am not sure you realize what a difference you make. We have shared a lot you and I, the good and the bad," she said. "You have become a part of my every day. I know you listen to me, but I want you to know that I listen to you, too. You have been a bigger help, a greater source of comfort and a more welcome diversion when I have needed it, than anything else I can think of."
Robertson has yet to reveal her new plans, although she looks forward to new challenges and new adventures.
Her blog posting ended with a promise: "I am not sure what the future brings, but one thing is for sure, it won't be boring!"
On her Facebook page, Robertson posted, "Age is a self-distilling process; the older we get, the more ourselves we become."
