As well as Farfetch, Hill has held senior roles at leading retailers such as John Lewis and Asos, where he worked closely with incoming Matchesfashion chief executive Nick Beighton.

Earlier this month, Matchesfashion appinted ex-Asos boss Beighton as its new chief executive.

Beighton will be replacing Paolo De Cesare, who joined Matchesfashion less than a year ago.

Beighton stepped down last year as CEO of online fast fashion giant Asos after over a decade, having transformed the platform into a £4 billion operation.

Hill said: “I am delighted to be joining a truly authentic leader in luxury fashion. For so long, the business has challenged luxury retail norms and pioneered creative retail experiences. I look forward to joining the outstanding team, now led by my former boss and mentor Nick Beighton, and taking the business’s unique proposition to even more customers across the globe.”

Beighton added: “Having worked with Stuart at ASOS, I have experienced firsthand the operational impact he can have on a business. As a founder of two successful logistics companies, Stuart will also bring a valuable entrepreneurial mindset to MATCHESFASHION, helping it to remain agile, innovative, and customer centric.

“I am sure we will all benefit from his industry insight and extensive experience in ecommerce, global logistics, and retail. I am immensely looking forward to being reunited with Stuart and starting to work with the exceptional wider team, including our new CFO, Dave Murray.”
