    Don Lekei is the owner of Help-My-Tech, a Maple Ridge based business providing on-site service, set-up and training for PC and Mac computers, smartphones, tablets and all the technical needs of home users and home-based and small businesses.

    He has been servicing and training people how to use personal computers, plus a wide variety of personal electronics since the mid 1970s. Don not only brings the technical expertise of decades of experience in both the service-side and product engineering, but also business experience, founding Cansoft Data, Inc. in 1980.

    After many years in product development and on-line services, Don started an in-home computer service business (Help-My-PC) in 2002, then later helped Future Shop build their in-home service business, ConnectPro. In early 2014, he left Future Shop to start a new business named “Help-My-Tech” because computer service alone doesn't cut it today.
