We love to stay close to people we've helped place, since it gives us joy to see them make a lasting impact. Today we wanted to celebrate the work anniversary of a placement from five years ago.

Joanne Lee joined QVC as their Buying Director for QVC's Beauty Category in 2012, having previously been Buying Director for House of Fraser. 

Jo was an ideal fit for the role, given her extensive track record and detailed sector knowledge. We helped to place her five years ago and watched her settle into QVC's incredibly fast-paced environment. She has excelled in her post and, following three years with QVC, was promoted to manage buying for all categories for the global business. All the country bases, including the US market, fell under her new remit.

Joanne was recently promoted again to Vice President of Merchandising for the UK business, whilst retaining her global buying remit. Jo has become an integral part of the global executive team, and her time in post has seen the business grow and develop, and their category assortment and consumer spend increase considerably. We have no doubt that she will continue to rise due to her hard work and dedication.

We look forward to celebrating her next five years of service!
