Want to learn more about Kyosei’s founding principles and history? Read the interview with our founder, Andrea Jacques.

Kyosei (key-ō – say) is a Japanese word meaning “living and working together for the common good.” It is more than just our name—it’s our cause and our calling.

What you offer, what you sell and how you do it, has an enormous impact on the world. If making a dollar is your only concern, you probably won’t get jazzed by working with us. However, if you’re a purpose-driven business leader who values making a difference and does not need to be convinced that lasting success is built on integrity, courage, creativity and contribution in all aspects of your life and work, then we’d love to hear from you.

Boyan started his first business (a computer training and support company) while in University. On graduation, he sold that firm and started another, developing custom CMSes (Content Management Systems) for small firms in the days before WordPress.

Swayed by life (namely the .dotcom crash of 2000), Boyan came to Vancouver on the coattails of a film scholarship and job as a Television Producer. He then moved into advertising, earning his stripes as a technology, copy, presentation designer and speech writer for agencies and clients like Alteryx, Box, Cossette, Crystal Decisions, DataSift, Google, Nokia, and SAP/BusinessObjects. Merging his marketing and web dev firm with Kyosei in 2003 (and marrying Andrea in 2006), Boyan today leads our product, marketing and operational efforts and is our coveted Strategic Futurist – helping clients navigate change, disruption & complex technology topics with his popular humor, optimism and can do charm.
