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.

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.
