The LIGANOVA Group appoints Klea Simon to the Management Board. In this newly created position, 36-year-old Klea Simon will further expand our community with the aim of attracting the best employees and keeping them permanently in the Group.

Stuttgart, February 16, 2022. The role and importance of employees in a company makes all the difference in the world during these times of skilled-labor shortages: Anyone who consistently focuses on new work, employer branding, further training and development for employees will remain attractive in the job market, gain new talents, and manage to keep them in the long term. This is an important criterion in the competition for lucrative contracts – especially for agencies. In order to implement these important prerequisites throughout the Group, the LIGANOVA Group, which specializes in the development and implementation of seamless physical & digital brand, product and service experiences, is now appointing Klea Simon to its Management Board. The LIGANOVA Group is the umbrella company of the eponymous GmbH as well as of the subsidiaries LIGADIGITAL, LIGAPRODUCTION and the Frankfurt digital Experience agency HERREN DER SCHÖPFUNG.

Simon, who has been with the Group for more than ten years, was previously responsible for human resources and organizational development at the company’s locations in Stuttgart, Berlin, Amsterdam and Chicago as Director People & Organization in the Management of LIGANOVA GmbH. The psychologist started her career by advising competitive athletes, before she advised well-known clients from the industry in the field of personnel and organizational development at the management consultancy teamwerk. At LIGANOVA, she successfully expanded the human resources department in her role as Human Resources Director and developed the company with its 400 employees into a modern and agile development platform, her credo: “Shape a future-ready community!”
In her new role as Managing Director People & Culture, Klea Simon complements the Management Board of the LIGANOVA Group consisting of Mathias Ullrich (Managing Director Experience Solutions), Torsten Dietz (Managing Director Global POS Campaigns) and Timo Schönauer (as Chief Executive Officer responsible for strategic orientation and development).
Klea Simon: “Our expertise, which we offer in the market, is conceived and filled with life by our employees. They are therefore our greatest asset. I see my task as creating a diverse working environment for the entire Group with a unique community that finds, promotes and permanently retains talents – and at the same time giving each individual the opportunity to make the best possible use of their own strengths.”
