Diversant, LLC is one of the largest African-American owned IT staffing solutions firm in the United States, and it is a certified Minority Business Enterprise. Diversant is based in New Jersey but is stretched across the US all the way to California. They recently opened up offices in Texas and North Carolina. For many young people coming into the workforce, either out of college or retiring from the armed services, they have the skills that could be contributed to a great company, but getting their foot in the door could be challenging. So that’s where Diversant comes in, helping companies looking for tech-savvy candidates become paired with them. And helping Diversant attract such candidates in John Goullet, the company’s principal executive who has years of experience in IT Staffing.
Goullet was raised in New York and got his bachelor’s degree at Ursinus College, and he started off as an IT consultant for various companies including the Computer Sciences Corp, the Constell Group, Cap Gemini America, and others. By the 1990s, Goullet had moved up from IT consultant to becoming an executive of the staffing department of his last employer, but then decided to step out on his own with an IT staffing firm. He founded Info Technologies in 1994, starting out small but attracting many new job seekers and fortune 500 clients that he had grown his capital to over $30 million. Info Technologies won the recognition of INC Magazine’s fastest-growing fortune 500 companies twice.
Info Technologies operated as its own entity for about 16 years, until in 2010 Goullet met up with Gene Waddy, the head of another IT staffing firm named Diversant Inc, and the two decided to partner up to build Diversant, LLC. The company quickly became a success with its business model and opening the doors to candidates of all backgrounds, hence its name Diversant. Diversant has also given back to the community by supporting local charities, museums, non-profits, and even scholarships for underprivileged children at local New Jersey charter schools.
