Keystone History

Keystone International was incorporated in 1991 as a New Mexico-based Veteran-Owned "C" corporation. In 1994, Gary Van Valin joined Keystone and two years later purchased the Company and assumed the position of President and Chief Executive Officer. As a result of his leadership, Keystone has continually evolved and prospered. Mr. Van Valin has significantly increased the Keystone staff to include full-time and part time employees and individual subcontractors functioning as consultants. He has been integral in securing subcontracts to provide technical support services at the Nevada Test Site and other Department of Energy site offices. In 2006, Michelle Detry joined Keystone as the General Manager. She assumed the position of President and CEO in 2009 and has since been named one of New Mexico Business Weekly’s “Top Performing CEOs.” Mr. Van Valin continues to serve as Chairman of the Board and Director of Business Development.

Keystone, from its inception, has been dedicated to providing organizational development consulting and technical support services to Defense, Energy, and highly technical companies and government agencies. Our organizational development services also support small and large businesses, universities, health care institutions and nonprofit organizations. Keystone has worked with clients locally, nationally, and internationally to provide them with affordable, responsive, and unsurpassed service. Keystone has grown to a multi-million dollar, Small Business Administration certified, Veteran-Owned Small Business. Keystone has been annually recognized since 2010 by the New Mexico Business Weekly and now by Albuquerque Business First as a “Top 25 Veteran Owned Business” annually since 2010.
