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."

Earlier this year, Mr Porter launched a campaign to re-establish its core brand values, reflecting on the progress made since it launched in February 2011 while also looking ahead to the future.

Earlier this week, Yoox Net-a-Porter Group confirmed the appointment of Alison Loehnis as interim Chief Executive Officer, effective 31 October 2022.

In her interim position, Loehnis will lead Yoox Net-a-Porter Group until the completion of the sale of 47.5% and 3.2% of YNAP’s share capital from Richemont to Farfetch and Alabbar, respectively, expected before the end of 2023, at which point an external CEO will be appointed.
