Web and TV retailer QVC has promoted John Cowan to senior vice president, information technology global services. He reports to chief information officer Linda Dillman and will oversee global information technology programs, including the retailer’s European I.T. operation.

OVC is part of Liberty Interactive Corp., No. 5 in the 2013 Internet Retailer Top 500. U.S. web sales for OVC increased 9.4% year over year in 2012 to $777.1 million, according to the research and rankings guide. The company does not break out international web sales.

Cowan joined QVC in 1994 and most recently worked as vice president, global systems and initiatives. Previous jobs included vice president, business strategy and technology integration, and vice president of business technology. He also helped launched QVC in Germany and Japan, the retailer says.

“As QVC continues to grow and evolve globally, it is important that we effectively leverage our resources at the local, regional and global levels," says Dillman. "This is particularly true for our technology teams. John's extraordinary knowledge of both I.T. and QVC's global markets, coupled with his strong leadership and relationship-building skills, will be invaluable for our future growth.”
