Federico Marchetti

Federico Marchetti (born 1969) is the founder of YOOX and CEO of YOOX NET-A-PORTER Group. After graduating at Bocconi University and getting an MBA at Columbia University and following a brief career in finance and consulting, he created the Internet retailing company in 2000 in Zola Predosa. In December 2009, Marchetti took YOOX Group public on the Borsa Italiana (Milan Stock Exchange), the first European tech company to do so since the economic downturn of that period. In 2010, YOOX Group opened its first offices in China in the city of Shanghai, opening its first mono-brand site there, www.emporioarmani.cn. In 2011, Marchetti was given an award for Innovation and Internet by the Italy-based Chi è Chi (Who's Who) organization. On January 25, 2012, Marchetti and YOOX Group were awarded the Comitato Leonardo's Premio Leonardo award for innovation by Giorgio Napolitano, President of Italy. Described by The New York Times as the man who put fashion on the net, in 2015 Federico led the merger between THE NET-A-PORTER GROUP and YOOX Group to become Chief Executive Officer of YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP.

The merger brought together two highly complementary businesses covering all key geographical luxury markets and customer segments.

Dubbed “The Geek of Chic” by The New Yorker, in 2016 he co-founded the Center for Digital Business Education with the support of YNAP and Bologna Business School. It is the first center of excellence in Europe dedicated entirely to the digital world. Several pioneering companies in the digital sector have joined this project that offers a one-of-a-kind education in the online field, and is open to both graduates and professionals. Fittingly, WIRED included him in their “100 most influential people” list.
