Idea and Vision

Making customer experience measurable for global premium brands.

Liganova was founded in 1995 in Stuttgart by Bodo Vincent Andrin. First national and international projects were implemented for the client Hugo Boss. In 2003 Liganova took over the design as well as the production and logistics for the worldwide window campaign of Boss. With Adidas, Tommy Hilfiger, Triumph, Porsche Design and Mercedes further well-known and large customers follow. At the beginning of 2009 Liganova opens a new location for Ligaproction in Heimsheim near Stuttgart with a total area of 12,000 sqm.

Vincent Bodo Andrin has built the company over two decades as a visionary founder and has consistently focused on software-supported tools in the field of brand marketing.

In 2015 Dr. Marc Schumacher joined the company as Managing Director & CEO with the task of driving Liganova forward. Liganova is growing rapidly and is developing into one of the leading service providers in the field of brand retail marketing. The international team now comprises more than 400 experts who develop holistic solutions and experiences for global brands at four locations in Stuttgart, Berlin, Amsterdam and San Francisco.

Dr. Marc Schumacher, CEO Liganova
"The increasing digital interaction between brand and consumer makes direct physical contact with the brand all the more important."

A partner at all levels.

The list of internationally renowned brands with which Liganova has been working for several years represents the innovative strength of the company. The definition of what is technologically feasible is constantly being redefined and existing boundaries are further broken down. EMH Partners is a valuable sparring partner.
