was founded in 1988, with the vision of Kenny Trout. A year later Kenny was joined
by Steve Smith, who introduced the company's Self Directed Income business
model. In little more than a decade, Excel has grown from a local residential long
distance reseller to become the nation's fourth largest long distance company in the U.S.
based on revenues. In 1997, the company acquired a sizable fiber-optic network with
the purchase of Telco Communications group. After merging with Montreal-based Teleglobe Inc., in late 1998, Excel started on the
road to global expansion with an initial expansion into Canada.
The premise fueling Excel's success is the power of personal partnerships
. Excel's formula combines a strong line of telecommunications products and services
with the Self Directed Income business model. The result is a remarkable business
opportunity for anyone with the entrepreneurial drive and commitment to make money and
help others do the same.
