Luxury etailer Net-a-Porter has announced appointments for the three key roles of fashion director, group head of brand relations and a newly-created group publishing director position.
Holli Rogers has been named fashion director while Jenny Cossons fills the role of group head of brand relations.
Tess Macleod Smith has been appointed to the newly-created position of group publishing director.
Rogers joined Net-A-Porter in 2002 as assistant retail director and was promoted to head of retail and buying in 2007 prior to being named buying director in 2008.
In her new role as fashion director, Rogers will continue to focus on buying as well as looking at new categories and strategies for the etailer.
Cossons, who joined the company two years ago, previously held the position of publisher at Net-a-Porter during which time she was responsible for the procurement of advertising revenue from a number of key luxury partners as well as the implementation of the etailer’s print magazine’s first ever beauty supplement.
Prior to joining Net-a-Porter Cossons worked for Conde Nast where she was Director of Fashion & Beauty advertising.
Macleod Smith joins Net-a-Porter today (January 23) in the newly created role of group publishing director. Macleod Smith was previously group publishing director at the Hearst Corporation and in her new role she will report to Net-a-Porter founder Natalie Massenet and chief executive Mark Sebba.
Commenting on the new roles, Massenet said: “We are committed to the continued growth and development of the Net-a-Porter group.
“The appointments of Jenny and Tess allows us to reinforce our positioning as the leading global marketing and sales partner for brands. Both have a wealth of experience in this category and we look forward to building on the tremendous results already achieved.”
