Thais Roda has developed her 10+-year career as an executive professional with a specialization in Luxury and International business.
As CEO of LIAIGRE, Inc., a French-based Architecture and Interior Design Studio firm, Ms. Roda has developed and grown the U.S. market through the launch of major initiatives including the expansion of the brand within secured representative partner showrooms throughout North America.
Before joining the LIAIGRE Group in 2013, Ms. Roda had focused her career in Operations at recognized European luxury fashion brands in the US market. She previously served as Operations Director for Pronovias, the worldwide leader in Bridal Apparel and as Head of Business for the US operations of Marithe & Francois Girbaud.
Born in Spain, Ms. Roda attended the Lycée Francais de Barcelona where she was exposed to a multilingual and international environment. During her time as an Economics Student at the University of Barcelona, she spent semesters in Switzerland, Canada and Italy. Her extensive travels around Europe since an early age solidified her cultural awareness and fluency in 5 languages.
Combined, these experiences gave her the opportunity to truly distinguish the diversity of cultures. This unique understanding has become key in her approach towards a luxury client experience.
Over the past thirty years, LIAIGRE has become synonymous with refined, iconic designs and craftsmanship. Through use of space and light, basing design on local cultures and traditions, choice of materials and a special love of art and crafts, the combination of luxury and comfort embody the hallmarks of the brands signature and sought after aesthetic. LIAIGRE's design ethos are rooted in the philosophy that interior architecture and design are far from fashion and trends, but are timeless, achieved by calm beauty and subtle luxury. This uniqueness became more and more apparent and marked a distinct identity within the industry, one in which dreams and beauty are epitomized for even the most discerning of clients.
