Bill Schereck Quote: "Very few people have a chance to participate from the inside of the startup of a new industry. Budd was part of the team that launched QVC UK. I was the supervising Executive for that startup and President, QVC International. He then had the opportunity to observe in the startup I supervised in Mexico for QVC. He then participated in the startup of TVSN in Australia when I was CEO. Only a handfull of people in the world have that level of experience in starting TV shopping operations. If there were a PhD in International Electronic Retailing, Budd would have earned one of the first."
