Following Natalie Massenet's resignation from her role as executive chairman of Net-a-Porter, the online fashion retail behemoth she founded in 2000 has finally closed its merger with Italian counterpart Yoox. With that, Alison Loehnis was announced as the new president of The Net-a-Porter Group.

Alison started as vice president of sales and marketing in Net-a-Porter.com in 2007, before stepping up to the role of president in December 2011, under fellow American Natalie's leadership. She previously worked for global corporations like Disney, Thomas Pink (under LVMH) and Saatchi & Saatchi.

"I am delighted and honoured to be taking on the role of President of The Net-A-Porter Group," the Brown University graduate said in a statement. "The opportunities within the business for growth, development and innovation – values that have always been at the heart of our work – are now without boundaries as part of Yoox Net-A-Porter Group. I look forward to leading our talented teams as they continue to set the standard for luxury retail online."

Alison will report to the group's CEO Federico Marchetti, and oversees the Net-a-Porter side of things, namely Net-a-Porter.com, MrPorter.com, TheOutnet.com and Porter magazine.
