For his part in taking the retailer to the top of the digital luxury sphere, Net-a-Porter's chief was awarded a prestigious prize.

With sales of Dhs5.4billion in the first nine months of this year alone, luxury online retailer Net-a-Porter is on the upswing, with one man in particular responsible for that stunning trajectory: Federico Marchetti, Chief Executive Officer of the Yoox Net-a-Porter Group. For that achievement, Marchetti was recognised as the 2016 Entrepreneur of the Year by Ernst & Young, one of the world's leading professional services firm.

Receiving the award over the weekend at the Italian Stock Exchange, Marchetti commented, "Anything is possible. It's not a question of capitals, but rather of execution. People are more important than capitals, they are the ones that turn ideas into reality."

Congratulations Federico Marchetti!
