Yoox Net-a-Porter has hired five senior leaders to bolster the retailer’s “ambitious strategy” for global growth, market expansion and innovation.

New chief technology officer Pete Marsden will focus on mobile, personalisation and AI to “enrich the customer experience”. The former House of Fraser and Asos chief technology officer will report to the fashion platform’s global chief operating officer, Olivier Schaeffer.

Paolo Inga has been appointed as global human resources director and will also sit on the group’s executive committee board.

Inga will report directly to Yoox Net-a-Porter chair and chief executive Federico Marchetti.

Most recently, Inga spent 11 years at telecommunications company Vodaphone as HR leader and was responsible for growing the staff to 24,000 employees across Hungary, Romania, India and Egypt.

Two appointments have also been made within the group’s luxury division covering Net-a-Porter and Mr Porter, as well as a new brand and communications director for Yoox.
