FACC-NY: Ask Me Anything with Liaigre’s CEO Thais Roda
April 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
As an early-career professional, the opportunity to exchange with executives can be invaluable, providing the impetus you need to excel in your current role, seek additional responsibilities and position yourself as a leader. The Young Executive Committee is pleased to launch an Ask Me Anything series. One guest executive will share their path to their current role and frankly discuss the challenges and obstacles they encountered along the way.
Meet the Speaker:
Thais Roda, CEO of Liaigre, has been part of the Liagre executive direction since May 2013, initially in the role of C.O.O before taking on her current position of C.E.O. Prior to Laigre, Thais served as Head of Business and Finance, U.S. Operations at the French fashion company Marithe + François Girbaud. Thais is a native of Spain, a graduate of the University of Barcelona and Columbia Business School in New York.
At the end of 2020, founder Christian Laigre, the namesake of Liagre, passed, marking a full-circle transition to a new creative team under the leadership of global C.E.O Christophe Caillaud. Liagre’s high-end furnishings are characterized by a « style without being stylish » that seduces a clientele wanting to live in contemporary interiors as well as holding on to the excellency of the French furnishing tradition.
