My Tech Guys celebrate eight years of service on Friday.

The geeks at My Tech Guys will be celebrating eight years of providing service to the Valley on Friday, Nov. 21 from 1-4 p.m. at their Courtenay store at 2401 Cliffe Ave. Drop by for coffee and cake, and a chance to win over $500 in prizes.

My Tech Guys was started in 2006 as a computer company focused on friendly in-home and in-store service, and stood out as the company with the crazy cars and baby pictures. A lot has changed since then with smart phones, tablets and smart TVs. The company has grown from four to 15 employees.

“Along with focusing on friendly service, we have also really tried to give back to our community by supporting worthwhile organizations and causes,” says owner and extreme Geek Bob Wells. “From MusicFest to CYMC, Habitat to Hospice, YANA to Child Development; whenever we can see we can make a difference we’re happy to help.”

Wells attributes a lot of his volunteer work to his involvement in Rotary.

“The motto ‘Service Above Self’ really speaks to me and helps me focus on what’s important.”

Over the years My Tech Guys has won several awards: Chamber Small Business of the Year, BC’s Fastest Growing Company, Best IT Service and other nominations.

“However, the wins we have been most proud of are the local parades, where we have won over six in the past eight years. To have our staff come out and participate every year is awesome and allows us to interact with our customers in a completely different way,” says regional manager and organized geek, Bryan Tisdale. “We hope the next eight years are just as great as our past eight years. On behalf of our 15 employees, thank you so much.”
