Executive Interiors hosted a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday to celebrate the first day of construction for a new building on West and Nielsen avenues in Fresno.
Executive Interiors is a commercial casework company that provides fixtures for commercial buildings. It was founded in Fresno in 2007. Their clients include Community Hospitals, Fresno Chaffee Zoo and Facebook, among others.
Tim Russell and his wife Jamie Russell first founded the company out of their home garage. They currently operate out of a 16,000 square foot warehouse in Fresno, but have outgrown the space.
Russell says that the groundbreaking of Executive Interiors’ new location is the beginning of a new chapter for his company.
“The groundbreaking ceremony is going to mark the commencement of construction of a state of the art facility like nothing that the Valley has ever seen before,” Tim Russell said. “The new facility is going to greatly enhance Executive Interiors millwork to the highest levels in the state.”
Speakers at the event included Fresno County Supervisor for District 3 Sal Quintero,, Senior Vice President/SBA Manager of Central Valley Community Bank Dorothy Thomas and President of Don Pickett and Sons Mike Pickett.
During his speech, Quintero recognized the company for the work they do with local charities and proclaimed on behalf of the city that April 4, 2018 was “Executive Interiors Day” for the county of Fresno.
“Executive Interiors is a great part of the community,” Quintero said. “They give back to the community. Tim and Jamie have created an environment where employees and customers are valued and respected.
The building is expected to be completed by September.
