Excal Design is the brainchild of Thomas W. Rissman, President & CEO, and Shubhra Bhargava, Vice President – Design.
The re-branding and marketing of the parent company, ExcalTech®, resulted in overall business growth, better brand recall, and increased revenue. Inspired by this success, Mr. Rissman and Ms. Bhargava decided to create Excal Design Inc. as a separate entity to support other organizations in achieving similar growth.
Mr. Rissman graduated from Cornell University in 1979 and from The Law School at the University of Chicago in 1982. He has extensive experience in information technology, railroads, and related products, and international transactions. As a serial entrepreneur, he believes he can help other businesses tap into their potential through Excal Design.
Ms. Bhargava has held leadership positions both in the US and emerging markets like India. An architect by training, she is a branded-environments specialist. She has worked with different consumer categories, ranging from FMCG to luxury products.
Ms. Bhargava has experience in design, user interface, general management, CMS, social media, brand identity, visual merchandising, and retail identities. She uses design thinking extensively for solving business problems and coming up with innovative solutions.
