Kevin Harrington, CEO of TVGoods.com LLC, and cofounder of OmniReliant Holdings, Inc., is widely acknowledged as the pioneer and principal architect of the "infomercial" industry. This year, 2009, marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of Harrington's production of the industry's first infomercial, with more than 500 product launches resulting in sales of over $4 billion worldwide; twenty of these products reached individual sales of over $100 million, creating dozens of millionaires. In 1991, Harrington's first company, Quantum International, which began in the mid-1980s, merged with National Media and grew into a multinational corporation with $500 million in annual sales and distribution in more than 100 countries.
Additional entrepreneurial startups included ventures with HSN, Inc. (HSN Direct) and Reliant International; the latter was sold to the Koo banking family of Taiwan in 2006. That same year, Harrington cofounded TVGoods.com and Omni Reliant Holdings, Inc., raising over $17 million in equity investment capital from a New York hedge fund. The firm recently purchased the controlling stake in Tampa Bay's premiere production facility, OmniComm Studios, which houses a 33,000 square foot state-of-the-art film studio and Harrington's offices on 5.4 acres in Clearwater, Florida.
In addition, Harrington's philanthropy has established two important global networking associations; the Entrepreneur's Organization (E.O.) and the Electronic Retailing Association (ERA). To learn more about Kevin, visit him at www.KevinHarrington.TV.
