Jeremy Langmead is returning home to Mr. Porter
“A year away was far too long”
Jeremy Langmead is returning 'home' to the brand he helped to found and build – Mr. Porter. Taking up the newly created role of brand and content director, Langmead is thrilled to be making a comeback after a year at Christie's London auction house where he has held the role chief content officer.
Langmead was previously editor in chief at Mr. Porter when he was part of the core launch team from 2011. His successor, John Brodie, will stay on, moving to the role of editorial director U.S., where he will focus on the growing US market. Langmead will slot into the London headquarters of Mr. Porter's e-commerce parent company, the Net-A-Porter Group. However, after recent news of a merger with Italian e-commerce company, the group is set to become the Yoox Net-A-Porter Group.
In his new role, Langmead's responsibility will be to build on the Mr Porter online content and editorial vision, and to drive "creative brand marketing" worldwide. The men's fashion site currently engages with more than 2.5 million users every month, and delivers to more than 170 countries. "A year away was far too long," Langmead said. "I can't wait to take on this new role and join together the content, branding and marketing elements, and create a powerful strategy."
Langmead has an impressive and colourful resume which includes positions as editor of British Esquire, Wallpaper magazine and Sunday Times Style. And during his year at Christie's he packed in achievements that include assembling a new content team, relaunching the auction house's magazine, creating an interiors publication and an online daily news hub. We will forward to seeing what his new plans are for Mr. Porter.
