What’s new at The Home Shopping Network? Well, it’s not just the top-of-the-line kitchen appliances and designer women’s fashions that the network is offering. The St. Petersburg-based HSN now also boasts a brand new product: general counsel Steve Armstrong. Before signing on with HSN, Armstrong was senior vice president and general counsel of Agilera, Inc., an Englewood, Colorado-based provider of software applications. But after four years of helping Agilera’s sales team close technology outsourcing agreements, Armstrong was ready for a change. “[HSN] has a lot of different and interesting legal and business issues, and presents a more interesting managing challenge,” says Armstrong, who now splits his time between HSN’s executive committee and its 17-person legal team. Armstrong has already helped the company navigate complex telecommunications regulations and negotiate agreements with hundreds of cable providers and broadcasters. “It’s exciting to be part of a healthy business that’s growing,” he says of his new employer. HSN has weathered the recent downturn in the economy with consolidated sales of close to $2 billion and a customer base of more than five million. Armstrong started his career at New York’s Sullivan & Cromwell; later, he became a partner at Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker, and then Baker & Hostetler, in the New York offices of both firms. He learned about the HSN job opening through former law firm colleagues. “It’s been the best job I’ve ever had in my career,” he says from his new home in St. Petersburg.
