Diversant LLC is the largest African-American owned IT staffing business in the United States of America. It holds this distinction with pride and their Principal Executive John Goullet seeks to maintain this acknowledgment of diversity in the years to come. Mr. Goullet is an industry leader and bar setter. He has leveraged considerable experience and time spent in the IT consulting field to make key improvements to the IT staffing companies he has been involved with.
John Goullet’s first IT staffing firm was known as Info Technologies and was started by him in 1994. It held the number eight position in Inc. Magazine’s list of 500 fastest growing, privately held firms in the U.S. It also had an impressive valuation at $30 million at its peak. Success always recognizes success and in 2010 Info Technologies merged with Diversant to create Diversant LLC. It was the beginning of a new wave of growth for the newly forged business as the innovation that John had gained through years of leading the IT staffing industry was paired with the diverse creativity of the Diversant leadership team.
As the Principal Executive, Goullet believes in these core attributes and it shows not only in their hiring methods but also their community contributions. One such community contribution focuses on U.S. veterans through the NOVA program. This program focuses on creating specialized career paths and educational options for veterans looking to enter the IT industry. Many colleges and universities are not graduating enough computer science degree majors and the IT industry is in dire need of talented individuals to fill key positions. The NOVA program draws on the unique experiences of veterans and their dedication to bringing them into the industry and find them long term employment and stability. It is one of the many ways that Diversant LLC and John Goullet ensure that the community that supports them is supported in turn.
