About > our company


Dr. Edgar Medina

After experiencing Marc Ison Design's professionalism and breadth of services first hand during a visit to Las Vegas, Edgar decided to help encourage growth of the Association Management-side of the business by suggesting that a new company be formed that was better named to represent more than design services.  Marc Ison Design officially closed in 2010 and transferred its client list to the new corporation.

By opening an office for Nth Degree Group in Colombia, South America, Edgar was able to move a majority of the design and simple administration to a lower cost center, thus lowering the hourly charges for non-profits and other businesses.

Although Dr. Medina has left Colombia for the USA and is pursuing Medical Auditing to continue his career in Medicine, he is an integral part of the Nth Degree success story with continued investment.
