HSN, Inc. taps Elizabeth Arden exec as finance chief


HSN, Inc. has appointed Rod Little as CFO, effective January 3, 2017.


Most recently, Little served as executive VP and CFO of Elizabeth Arden, where he led the company’s global finance and IT organizations and was instrumental in a turnaround that restored revenue growth and profitability, ultimately resulting in the company’s sale to Revlon.  Prior to that, Little was CFO for Procter & Gamble’s multi-billion dollar global salon professional division. 


In his new position,  Little will succeed Judy Schmeling, who was named president of HSNi operating division Cornerstone Brands in August 2016, in addition to her ongoing leadership role as COO of HSN, Inc.  Schmeling will work closely with Little to ensure a seamless transition. 


“Rod is an accomplished finance executive with significant public company and operational expertise in the consumer products industry.  We are absolutely thrilled to have someone with his background and proven experience join the HSNi leadership team,” said Mindy Grossman, CEO.
