In the beginning

Kosh Solutions was founded in 2005 by Koert Council and Joshua Fristoe to provide quality computer and IT consulting services to an underserved market in Las Cruces, New Mexico. What started as two passionate professionals aiming to deliver superb customer service and incredible technical support to the local community grew to an organized team of IT experts within 6 months.

 

In 2012, Travis Alsup joined Kosh as CEO and has been instrumental in Kosh's focus on delivering industry leading services and growth.

Today, Kosh supports customers from "the Rockies to the ocean" with a presence in New Mexico, Southern Colorado, and Southern California.

Koert Council

Koert was born and raised in southern New Mexico. After high school he obtained a Bachelors of Science degree in Electrical & Computer Engineering. Koert demonstrated his aptitude in this subject by graduating early - in just 3 years. During his college years, he interned at Lockheed Martin in San Jose. After college, Koert traveled around the country performing a variety of jobs, realizing that rather than being chained to a desk all day writing code, he particularly enjoyed helping people and the customer service interactions.
