Acquired by Blackstone in 2015, Ideal Shopping Direct operates three live TV channels in the UK and US and a number of pure play brands in the craft marketplace.   

The company’s chief executive Mike Hancox said: “I am excited to be working with an executive with such an outstanding reputation in the retail and digital sectors. Richard has a proven track record of success and will play an important role in continuing the growth of Ideal Shopping Direct.”
