About us

Excedo is a learning solution that enables business professionals to communicate confidently and effectively across borders and cultures – helping individuals and their organisations to succeed globally. Our organisation is led by a team of experts in language learning, online education, business skills development, and innovative technology.

We've joined Excedo from global brands like Pearson, Berlitz, Macmillan, KPMG, and Google because we want to help people to communicate effectively, breakdown barriers and reach their full potential. 

The best of the new and the old come together

Excedo is the brainchild of our three co-founders: Tas Viglatzis (CEO), Dr. Christoph Grau (COO) and Thu Doan (CCO), in collaboration with two trusted global market leaders: Nikkei and the Financial Times.

This gives our customers the best of both worlds – the modern tools and fresh thinking of a start-up, combined with the deep knowledge and experience of two of the world’s leading media companies.
