It is a proven fact that Minority Owned Business Enterprises have a harder time becoming profitable. The climb to the top for such businesses seem as steep as they come. Yet, still there are many minority owned businesses making it happen. One of the first businesses that come to mind is Diversant, LLC.
For those not familiar with Diversant; Diversant at it’s core is the leading black owned IT staffing firm in America. An enterprise that prides itself on its originality and diversity. They’re dedication to being as diverse as possible really shows in their diversity programs. The programs inspire creative thinking and innovation, while also establishing strong connections with local markets. A seemingly small detail that gives Diversant a huge boost.
Gaining high praise and recognition along the way. Recently, the New Jersey based enterprise earned the #116 spot on Staffing Industry Analyst’s (SIA) list of largest staffing firms in the United States. Diversant earned over a $100 million in revenue the year before.
Another characteristic of Diversant that helps them separate themselves from the competition is their leadership. The people in leadership positions at Diversant are well deserving and knowledgeable. Whether it be their visionary CEO Gene Waddy, Chief of Operations Jim Yoshimura, or outstanding company Principal John Goullet, the business seems to be in good hands.
John Goullet was a well established entrepreneur before his time at Diversant. After trying his hand at computer consulting and as an IT staffing account executive, Goullet decide to start his own IT staffing company called Info Technologies, Inc. in 1994.
Goullet quickly made Info Technologies a force to be reckoned with in the IT staffing community. Info Technologies earned the #8 spot on Inc. Magazine’s list of the 500 fastest-growing privately-held firms in the U.S. in just five years since it was conceived. In 2010, Goullet and Waddy merged their two companies, forming Diversant LLC.
