Yoox Net-A-Porter announces new Chief People Officer

The Yoox Net-A-Porter group has appointed a new Chief People Officer.

Deborah Lee will start her new role in January 2017, holding responsibility for defining the HR vision of the company.

Lee will manage the global HR team with direct reports in Milan, Bologna, New York, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo, but will be based in Yoox Net-A-Porter’s London office.

She joins from BT Global Services, where she served as Chief HR Officer.

Chief Executive, Federico Marchetti, comments on the appointment: “Building an outstanding Leadership Team has been at the top of my agenda since our group was born close to a year ago and a lot of our energy went into identifying the perfect candidate for this crucial role.

“Deborah has a proven track-record at the highest level in a successful tech-driven organisation. This experience, coupled with her international background, will be invaluable: people are at the heart of this business and it is critical that we give them every opportunity to develop and grow for future success.”

Lee adds: “I’m thrilled to be a part of the company that introduced consumers to online shopping for luxury 16 years ago.”

“I look forward to joining Yoox Net-A-Porter’s strong leadership team and working to develop and grow talent across the group.”
