Luxury e-tailer MyTheresa.com has announced changes to its commercial leadership team with the appointment of Richard Johnson as its new chief commercial officer and the promotion of Tiffany Hsu to buying director.

Richard Johnson will become MyTheresa's new chief commercial director - MyTheresa.com

Johnson, who has been working as commercial director at MyTheresa rival Matchesfashion since December 2015, will join the company in November. He will take full responsibility for all buying and merchandising activities, and oversee MyTheresa’s buying, retail & merchandising and merchandise planning teams.

His previous experience includes senior roles at Dubai-based luxury group Al Tayer, high-end department store chain Harvey Nichols and menswear brand Moss Bros.

He will be joined by Tiffany Hsu, who is being promoted from buying manager of RTW to fashion buying director at MyTheresa.com.
