From Facebook to the Fresno Zoo, the diversity of clients served by Executive Interiors
Inc. highlight its range of custom wood working capabilities.
The growing Fresno, California-based
firm was founded in 2007 by husband and
wife team Tim and Jamie Russell. “Our base
product is commercial cabinetry and we
produce a lot of laminate casework with solid
surfaces,” said Tim Russell.
In addition to work for financial institutions such as Wells Fargo banks and ECCU
Credit Union, “We also have felt very fortunate to be asked to do work for the military,
including work for the U.S. Army’s Fort Hunter
Liggett and the U. S. Marine Corp. base, 29
Palms,” Russell said.
A corepartofthebusinessis work for
medical facilities, such as doctors’ offices,
dental practices and hospitals. Here, the com-
pany’s client base includes the Fresno-area
Clovis Community Medical Center, Community
Regional Medical Center and St. Agnes Medical
Center, “where we will do a $1,000,000 proj-
ect for their cancer center,” Russell said.
Executive Interiors recently worked on a
dental facility at Facebook’s headquarters in
Menlo Park. “Mark Zuckerberg is a fascinat-

Russell added, “I feel the same way and
we offer retirement, medical and dental
benefits to our employees. We have very

With 22 employees, the company has al-
ready undergone three building expansions,
from an initial shop size of 1,000 square feet,
to the current 18,000-square-foot facility.
Along the way, the company has invested
in new technology. Three years ago Russell
purchased a 10-foot TigerStop system with
optimization software, which the company
uses in conjunction with an upcut saw.
“We were interested in getting the TigerStop for the time it would save us,” Russell
said, adding that it has been fast and accurate in a variety of jobs.
“We do a lot of school work modernization
over the summers. It is fast-paced work with
tight schedules and the TigerStop allows us
to get parts done quickly and doesn’t tie up
the CNC to do them individually.”
Prior to using TigerStop, cutlists were sent
into the shop manually. “With Tiger Stop we
can send the cutlist directly to the tool. This
improves cut quality, eliminates error and
saves significant time previously spent cor-
recting those errors,” Russell said.
Microvellum software is used to provide
cutlists to the machines. The ERP program
from Seradex, purchased and installed three
years ago, also handles shipping and receiv-
