In 1993, two friends fresh out of university joined forces to start a company. Steven Dengler and Beric Farmer started out from a basement office, offering computer consulting and internet services. A couple of years later, the duo introduced a demo currency converter to show clients how interactive the internet could be. As the years passed, it was clear that they were running the web’s dominant currency tool and started to focus on XE’s currency services. With years of hard work, Steven, Beric, and the XE team cultivated this tool into the world’s largest currency brand - XE. Today, XE is one of the last remaining independent first-wave Internet companies around.

To us, being responsible means engaging with our community and making a commitment to our environment. XE strives to make a positive impact in both our local and global communities and so, we support six principal charities every year. Additionally, every XE team member gets to pick a charity to which we donate $1000 to annually. Here are some of the organizations we sponsor:
We believe that everyone has the responsibility to take care of our environment. That’s why XE uses Bullfrog Power to offset 100% of our energy consumption. Bullfrog Power’s green electricity comes exclusively from wind and hydro facilities that have been certified as low impact by Environment Canada. It’s a small step, but we think it’s important to support clean energy and invest for a greener future.
