Toby Bateman has resigned from his role as managing director of luxury online retailer Mr Porter after nine years of serving.

Parent company Yoox Net-a-Porter Group (YNAP) has not provided a reason for Bateman’s departure.

The company thanked Bateman for his “long-term commitment” and “many notable successes” during his career.

Bateman joined Mr Porter in 2010 as buying director, before being promoted to managing director in 2015.

The news comes after YNAP made five senior appointments last week, including Nicola Brandolese as the new managing director of sister site Net-a-Porter.
