Victoria Wieck is the epitome of the rags to riches American dream story. She immigrated from South Korea to America with her parents with only thirty dollars and has built a multi-million dollar business with over $500 million in retail sales. After a series of corporate jobs, Victoria started her own company in 1989 on a shoestring budget to spend more time with her family. She has founded several other successful businesses since then. She’s worked with a wide variety of retailers world-wide ranging from major department stores to duty free stores, as well as internet and TV retailers.
For the past 22 years (19 years on HSN, and 3 years on Shop HQ), Victoria has been sharing her jewelry designs with millions of viewers during her own monthly shows. She has built her highly successful business following her passion for jewelry, without sacrificing her family life. Throughout her career, she’s had to invent ways to have her products consistently outperform her competition and thrive.
Victoria is also the author of the science fiction novel, Shattered Sky, scheduled to be released in 2021. She completed a B.S. degree in Economics from UCLA, and an MBA with emphasis in Marketing and Finance from USC.
