Net-A-Porter’s global content director and Porter’s editor-in-chief Lucy Yeomans has decided to leave the business after six and half years. Yeoman had joined the company in 2012 and after publishing the 5th anniversary issue of Porter magazine, she is all set to work on new projects outside of the organisation. Meanwhile, Sarah Bailey will now become Acting Editor-in-Chief of Porter.
“I have enjoyed the most wonderful six and half years at Net-A-Porter. I am particularly proud of having created Porter, a game-changing new global editorial brand that has empowered and celebrated incredible women from its launch. As Porter hits its 5-year anniversary milestone, it feels like the perfect time to take on an exciting new challenge,” said Yeomans in a statement.
Key highlights of Yeomans’ career at the company include the introduction of fully shopaable digital weekly content, Porter Edit, published in four languages; the launch of bi-monthly Porter print and the launch of Net-A-Porter’s daily content service.
“Lucy has been a driving force behind the development of our pioneering content and has built Porter into an award-winning, world-renowned proposition. I have loved working with her and would like to express my sincere thanks to Lucy for her passion, creativity and commitment and wish her every success in her next venture,” added Alison Loehnis, President of Net-A-Porter and Mr Porter.
Bailey has been a key member of the Porter team since joining Net-A-Porter from Hearst last year. She holds an extensive background in content, having worked in senior global roles for magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Elle and Red.
