Federico Marchetti is an entrepreneur at the intersection of luxury and technology.
In 1999, he founded YOOX, seizing the opportunity long before industry insiders understood what the Internet could offer the world of fashion. Since then, Federico has continued to stay two steps ahead of the market and customer trends – whether it’s developing artificial intelligence or promoting sustainable fashion.
In 2015, Federico drove the game-changing merger of YOOX and NET-A-PORTER to create YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP, the world leader in online luxury and fashion.
Uniquely positioned in the high-growth online luxury sector, YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP has a client base of more than 3.5 million high-spending customers from over 180 countries, employs over 5,000 people and generated revenues of almost $2.5 billion in 2017, half of which were from mobile sales.
In 2018, with a valuation of $6 billion, YOOX NET-A-PORTER became part of Richemont, one of the world’s leading luxury groups, whose portfolio of Maisons includes Cartier, IWC Schaffhausen, Chloé, Montblanc and Officine Panerai.
Today, Federico Marchetti is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP, and divides his time between Milan, London and the rest of the world.
Federico holds a degree in Economics from Bocconi University in Milan and an MBA from Columbia Business School in New York City.
