Three months following merger effectiveness, the Group implemented a new organisational structure, conceived with the double objective of enhancing and innovating the customer offer across the distinct storefronts, and powering the growth of the business while fully unlocking synergies through a common global technology-logistics platform and corporate functions.
Effective February 1, the customer-facing divisions have been arranged into three separate business lines, reporting to CEO Federico Marchetti. Alison Loehnis who has been with the Net-A-Porter Group since 2007, has been promoted to President In-Season, with the responsibility of leading Net-A-Porter.com, Mr Porter.com and Porter magazine.
Luca Martines, former president Yoox.com and with the Company since 2005, has been promoted to President Off-Season, in charge of both Yoox.com and The Outnet.com. Paolo Mascio, who has been responsible for the Mono-brand division since 2009, is now President Online Flagship Stores. Alberto Grignolo, Group’s COO and with the Yooxteam for 15 years, will be heading the Shared Services Unit, a newly formed division encompassing technology, operations, sourcing centre for own label and market development, including China and Japan.
Alex Alexander, who joined Alberto’s team from Walmart Global eCommerce in June 2015 as Chief Information Officer of Yoox Group, was promoted to Chief Information Officer of the newly formed Yoox Net-A-Porter Group. Alex will play a pivotal role in unifying the London and Bologna teams and in building a shared scalable technology platform able to support the Group’s future multibillion euro business and empower customer-centric innovation. For this crucial role, Alex will leverage his 20 years of experience in successfully executing platform migrations of significant scale for international and fast-growing online businesses as well as in managing and growing globally-based teams.
William Duffy, after five years leading The Net-A-Porter Group global operations and another 15 in the field, was promoted to Senior Director of Global Operations of the new Group to lead the integration and future expansion of the Group’s global logistics platform. No changes have been made to the Group’s Corporate functions headed by Enrico Cavatorta, Chief Financial & Corporate Officer.
