About

We take our clients goals seriously,
but ourselves, not so much.

We’re not big fans of industry-speak. So when we say we do “strategy-driven work designed to help you achieve your business goals,” it pains us a little, but it also makes the point succinctly. Results matter to us because they matter to you. And it’s why client-centric is one of our company values.

Meet the Team

We’ve assembled quite the herd of Estiponies — smart, talented communications professionals who just care a whole lot about the work they do.

Get to know us.

We’ve got a long story — here’s the short of it.

Estipona Group was launched in 1993, in Edward Estipona’s parents’ garage in Stead, Nevada. He had one of the early Macintosh computers, a bad perm, and a belief in his 22-year-old self’s ability to help clients achieve their goals.

We're full service, yet virtual.

Today we are a full-service marketing communications firm with a few more tricks up our sleeve. Our capabilities include brand strategy, advertising, digital communications, public and media relations, but essentially, we’ll do whatever it takes to tell your story and help you achieve your business goals. Spray paint public sidewalks under cover of night; create a $5 million state lottery in a week; rummage through junk yards for the perfect car to saw in half — we do that too.

After 16 years in a real live bricks and mortar office with Costco snacks and arguments over AC, we went virtual in 2009. Long before it was common, or even understood, we chose to become a virtual company to invest more in the things we felt made the biggest difference to our clients — our people and our technology. Being virtual has made adding talented teammates in places far from Reno, Nevada, seamless (whether they’re 35 miles away in Truckee, California, or 8,000 miles away in Jamnagar, India). And with virtual processes and digital resources in place and well tested, we’re able to serve our clients, no matter what’s happening in our unpredictable world (i.e. we didn’t miss a beat during pandemic lockdowns and were able to help our clients with urgent communications).
