Sergey launched CALLGEEK (later renamed to CAPITALTEK) in 2008. He had recently immigrated to Canada to seek new opportunities and like many immigrants, he couldn’t find a job despite having strong academic credentials.
As a newcomer to Ottawa in his mid-twenties, he had no business contacts, no startup funds and spoke very little English. Despite these obstacles, he was determined to succeed in his new home country so he started a computer services company from scratch. To find his initial clients, he walked door to door in residential areas of Ottawa and placed his brochure in mailboxes.
From these early stages of CAPITALTEK and continuing to this day, Sergey has always gone “over & above” with customer service and always tries to exceed expectations. This customer-focused approach showed results in the early stages of the firm. After he was able to acquire a few clients, the referrals came in quickly. Referrals continue to be a major source of new clients.
