Every business has a story, tell us yours.
In 1990, sisters Annette and Victoria Quintana founded the company that would evolve into what Istonish is today. Their initial vision and dedication to creating an organization that was built on service, excellence and unbendable ethics, has led them from assisting companies and governmental agencies in finding the best technology talent, to now building and delivering IT solutions.
Istonish is headquartered in Denver, Colorado, but our reach is nationwide. A privately held company, Istonish’s clients span a diverse sampling of industries: Government entities, medical, energy, telecommunications, oil and gas, as well as small organizations and Fortune 15 companies.
