Net-a-Porter's Managing Director Vikki Kavanagh has been appointed to Managing Director of menswear retailer Mr Porter, uniting the two brands under the same leadership.
Kavanagh joined the YOOX-Net-a-Porter Group in 2018 as Global Buying and Merchandising Director at The Outnet. She then became Managing Director of Net-a-Porter in 2021. She also previously held roles various buying roles at Very Exclusive, Harvey Nichols, House of Fraser, and Fenwick.
Kavanagh published the news on LinkedIn, commenting: "I’m happy to share that I’m starting a new position as managing director for both Net-a-Porter and Mr Porter."
