Not really.  TablePress would be the only one that comes to mind but that's really meant for datagrids that need sorting and filtering capabilities.  Your image is more of a design table and one that can and should be handled with HTML.

There are many plugin options for building tables such as these using BB-Code type markup. Some even have buttons that are added to the WYSIWYG editor to make building them easier.

wpDataTables is a premium plugin that gives you a lot of the power of Excel in a WordPress page - http://codecanyon.net/item/wpdatatables-responsive-tables-in-wordpress/3958969

Visual Table Formatting is another premium plug that gives you the ability to easily build out tables - http://codecanyon.net/item/visual-table-formatting/6402889

EasyTable is a free option - http://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-table/

ZillaShortcodes is a free option, where you can use their "column" tags to create tables (this is how I build my tables) - http://www.themezilla.com/plugins/zillashortcodes/

This is only a small sample, there are many more options. Search "WordPress Table Plugin" or "WordPress Spreadsheet Plugin" and find the one that is the right fit for you.
