Yoox Net-a-Porter group taps in-house talent, appoints Mr Porter’s managing director

 

 

Yoox Net-a-Porter names new managing director for Mr Porter. Yoox Net-a-Porter group, owned by luxury holding Richemont, has appointed Fiona Firth, until now buying director of Mr Porter, as new managing director of the menswear ecommerce platform. The executive joined the company in 2016.

 

Firth had previously held several senior leadership roles in menswear buying for River Island, Harvey Nichols and Harrods. The executive will report directly to the president of the luxury division of Yoox Net-a-Porter, Alison Loehnis, and will be responsible for driving the ecommerce platform expansion plans.

 

Richemont acquired Net-a-Porter in 2010 and, five years later, it merged it with Italian rival Yoox. The resulting company was listed on the Milan Stock Exchange that same year and Richemont kept a 49% stake in the business. In 2018, Richemont took out the company from the stock market after reaching 98% of its capital.
