"Mario and his team are true masters of the art and science of getting things done. In my experience, Aegis goes beyond solving client's problems to empower us and provide opportunities I had never imaged. If I had to choose one advocate to protect my interests, it would be Aegis." - Albert Ward, National Association of Royalty Owners. 

"As president of Downtown San Angelo, Inc., I have worked with Mario and his staff on numerous projects to showcase our city as a destination place for visitors from around the world. At a time of budget cutbacks around the country, the issue of tourism funding is more relevant than ever. Aegis' tourism-business acumen has helped DSA prove that destination marketing programs generate more tax revenue than they cost by driving substantial increases in visitation and spending in local communities." - Brenda Gunter, President, Downtown San Angelo, Inc. 

"If the odds of winning are against you, hire The Aegis Group and you'll beat those odds.  The good citizens of Alaska found themselves in that very situation last year when some big Outside special interests in Washington, DC tried to impose a very onerous tax on our state.  Under Aegis President Mario Castillo and his staff's coordination and direction, a grassroots coalition of Alaska consumers, small businesses and other affected groups joined together to defeat this onerous tax with the bipartisan assistance of Alaska's legislators and Alaska's congressional delegation.  It was an amazing example of how ordinary citizens were able to defeat a much larger adversary.  Aegis' success is based on Mario and his staff's deep knowledge of "people politics," extensive experience in the halls of government at the federal and state level, and a winning personality." - Representative Bob Lynn, Alaska State House Representative, District 31, Anchorage. 

"Aegis is wonderful and engaging. Again, we have a brilliant behind-the-scenes leader. That's the style I would like to duplicate." - J.D. Dunbar, Chief Executive Officer, RULE (Rural Leadership). 

"Pennsylvania agriculture had a unique opportunity last week to showcase the innovations and innovators driving our industry. Your efforts as a part of the Contemporary Issues in Agriculture Forum were invaluable to the success of this special event." - Russell C. Redding, former Secretary of Agriculture for Pennsylvania. 


"I have found our relationship with Mario Castillo and his staff to be remarkable. The goal setting process and the enormous amount of work you have done for our “cause” is extraordinary. Best of all despite the hectic activity you took the time to keep us informed all the way. Your tactics and strategy have been flawless. I am ready to recommend Aegis to any company or Association that wants ACTION and RESULTS.” - David M. Brohel, Norseland.
