History

M&I was originally formed in 1962 by Robert M. Matson and W. Howard Isom as an accounting firm in Chico, California.

When the demand placed on the technology consulting department grew at such a high rate, we separated from the accounting firm in the 90s, and formed Matson & Isom Technology Consulting.

Although both companies are still thriving in northern California, we retained the Matson & Isom name, while the original group now operates under the name Pinion.
