Joel DeTeves – Founder
Hi, I’m Joel. My journey with computers began with my family’s first 486 PC. That early fascination led me to build my first PC at 16 years old, and eventually to one of Northern BC’s first technical college programs. After starting my career as a computer technician, I moved on to Public Service, then Managed IT Services, later progressing to enterprise Systems Administration. Although successful, I became frustrated with the way other companies operated: I knew there was a better way. In 2017, I made the Leap and founded my own IT support company. Since then, we’ve grown to a team of five, partnering with dozens of businesses in Vancouver, all bound by a simple motto: invest in each client’s success as if it were our own. My passion for IT and commitment to helping our clients succeed are the greatest rewards, and I wouldn’t change it for a thing.
Lucas Salibian – Co-founder
Lucas began his career as an altruist, supporting non-profits in Vancouver. Learning to code at just 8 years old, his career quickly progressed to enterprise Linux administration in the film industry, where he leveraged his natural talents to earn his way into an advanced position at the young age of 23. Lucas’s passion is evident in the way he approaches every new challenge like a puzzle to be solved. His desire to learn new things is insatiable – he is an invaluable asset to the team, and continues to balance the design of internal infrastructure at LCS while providing expert support to a client base of more than 250+ people. Lucas joined Leap as co-founder in 2018 while volunteering together with Joel. In his spare time, there’s nothing Lucas loves more than spending time with his furry best friend Pippin.
