ITALIAN PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC
30 November 2017 – Federico Marchetti, CEO of YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP, has been awarded by the Italian President of the Republic, Sergio Mattarella, the honor of Knighthood (Cavaliere del Lavoro) during the ceremony held at the Palazzo del Quirinale, one of the official Presidential residences, in the Italian capital of Rome.
“It is a true honor to be awarded a Knighthood (Cavaliere del Lavoro). I dedicate this recognition to the over 4,500 employees at YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP who work with me every day on this ambitious project, making us the leader in luxury e-commerce. My thoughts also go out to all the young Italian entrepreneurs who – like me 20 years ago – find themselves working in a wonderful country despite the challenges we face. This does not feel like the end of my journey; this honor only drives me to keep striving for the best.”
