MEET THE TEAM

Helen Terzievski
Helen Terzievski
- President and Founder

Raised by Greek immigrant parents from Sparta (you saw the movie 300 right?) who were entrepreneurs themselves, Helen learned from a young age the importance of possessing strong work ethic. Her first job in the tech arena was in a one-man distribution company in the computer industry. At the age of 22, she was learning what was needed for her to ultimately follow her dream of starting her own business. Two years later in July 1995, Xcel was born.
Helen loves nature and the outdoors and her favourite animal is the monkey. She enjoyed part-time studies at a local Mississauga culinary school as a home chef, and she likes to experiment with new recipes for her teenage son when he’s back in Mississauga from Queen’s University. She is also studying Spanish in her spare time for interest and travel. This year she was nominated for the RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Award “Women of Influence”.

Peter Terzievski

- Account Executive and Founder

Pete has been an integral part of Xcel Source since the birth of Xcel in the 90’s. In his spare time he likes to hang out with his terrier Scotch, or with his son Todd when he is not away at Queen’s University. Pete enjoys a good beer or a great glass of red wine. He’s a devout Toronto Maple Leafs fan, and has visions of them having the Stanley Cup back in Toronto. When it comes to Customer Service, Pete knows personal. “Our customers love having a real Human that can respond to them, instead of dealing with a large company where they get treated as just a number in the system. We strive to always provide personal, expedient service here at Xcel Source,” he asserts.

Jason is an active member of the Credit Valley Rotary Club, and served as his Club President in 2014/2015..

He loves all kinds of music, reading and of course movies – having lived his past life as an actor!
