« I am proud that Unisono is part of the Intelcia adventure, and thus contributes to the achievement of the Group's future objectives and to its global growth strategy. Our two Groups share the same values and vision of the sector; these same values and vision I had when I created Unisono. After 22 years of growth with one of the best teams in the industry, I am excited about the promising growth prospects that now lie ahead for the company I founded in 1999 », says Maria Del Pino Velázquez, founder of the Unisono Group.
