At Calitho, we invest as heavily in relationships as we do in the latest equipment and technologies. Our clients return to us again (and again) because they know they’ll receive responsive, personalized service not found elsewhere. When they call, we pick up the phone. When they have a concept that seems nearly impossible to execute, we make it possible. Many on our team have been with us for at least a decade, and others for more than two. We function as a flat organization in which every person is empowered to be a decision maker.
