Menswear etailer Mr Porter has announced its founding editor-in-chief Jeremy Langmead will return to the business as brand and content director.
Langmead, who helped launch the site in 2011, will re-join in the newly created roll on June 1. He left in November 2013 to become chief content officer at auction house Christie’s.
Langmead will report to Mr Porter’s managing director Ian Tansley and be based in Net-a-Porter’s London headquarters.
Mr Porter’s current editor John Brodie will become editorial director of the business’s US arm.
It comes after Mr Porter’s parent company, Net-a-Porter Group, last month signed a deal to merge with its Italian rival Yoox.
Langmead, who has previously held senior roles at Esquire, Wallpaper and Sunday Times Style, said he will join together the content, branding and marketing elements of the site under his new remit.
As Drapers reported earlier today, Mr Porter will launch a dedicated sportswear minisite on April 28.
