GENERAL MERCHANDISE

Yoox Net-a-Porter appoints chief people officer

Online luxury fashion group Yoox Net-a-Porter has appointed Deborah Lee as chief people officer as part of its global expansion plans.

Taking responsibility for the group’s global HR team with direct reports in Milan, Bologna, New York, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo, Lee will take up her new role in January. She will be based at Yoox Net-Porter’s London offices and will report to chief executive Federico Marchetti.

Lee has 20 years’ experience leading international HR functions for a number of BT Group’s largest organizations including heading up the group learning function.

Most recently, she served as chief HR officer at BT Global Services where she was credited with driving the transformation of HR and boosting employee engagement through a focus on talent, training and metrics.

In 2013, she was selected as a Financial Times expert on “Human transformation in the digital age” and is active on several think tanks and advisory panels.

Marchetti said: “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 organization. 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.”

Hear how leading retailers are shaping the future of employee engagement, retention and wellbeing at Retail Bulletin's HR Summit in London on 5 October.
