Jeremy Langmead decamped from his role as editor in chief at Mr Porter more than a year ago to join the team at Christie’s London as chief content officer. But he couldn’t stay away for long: On June 1st, he will head back to Mr Porter as the site’s inaugural brand and content director. While at Christie’s, he was tasked with relaunching their glossy, creating an interior furnishings magazine, and piecing together a whole new team dedicated solely to creating content. But it seems he’s excited about his return: “A year away was far too long. I can’t wait to take on this new role and join together the content, branding and marketing elements of Mr Porter and create a powerful strategy to continue the extraordinary growth the brand has already seen since it launched in 2011,” said Langmead in a statement.
In his new gig, Langmead will focus on building the site’s editorial content; he will also lead global marketing strategies. To adjust for this new role, the site’s current EIC, John Brodie, will transition to the position of U.S. editorial director. Mr Porter currently has a monthly audience of 2.5 million men, spanning across 170 countries. The site was launched in 2011, with Langmead as one of the founding editors. Before arriving at Mr Porter, he held roles at Esquire U.K., Wallpaper, Sunday Times, and London Evening Standard. Net-A-Porter Group, which owns Mr Porter, was recently acquired by Yoox, changes are sure to be abound at this men’s style site. Stay tuned.
