John Goullet has helped build a great IT staffing company together with Gene Waddy called Diversant, LLC. Goullet is the executive principal of this company and helps guide its business strategy. Diversant, LLC is built on the idea of promoting diversity within the IT workforce, and with the combination of ideas from Goullet and Waddy this company has been able to grow into many new markets. Hiring the right candidates can be time-consuming for many companies, and likewise providing the right resume and tackling the interview can be daunting for new candidates. So Goullet’s company helps bridge the gap between the two parties.
Before Diversant was formed, Goullet was the founder and CEO of Info Technologies. He has a degree from Ursinus College and served for a few years as a computer consultant to companies like the Computer Sciences Corporation and the Constell Group. He became interested in helping these companies find more qualified workers, so he changed his career to IT staffing. He began his company, Info Technologies without much capital, but within five years he grew its net worth to $30 million. Info Technologies had become quite reputable that it got cited twice in INC Magazine as one of the fastest-growing fortune 500 companies.
Goullet and Waddy decided to merge companies in 2010, and soon Diversant began to open up offices all across the US. Diversant has reached out to the local communities in New York and New Jersey including the Congressional Black Caucus, the Harlem Business Alliance, and others. They’ve also started scholarship programs for charter schools, including the Marion P. Thomas Charter School. Diversant is committed to bringing new workers in through higher education, and even providing former military members a transitional program for when they retire to civilian life. Diversant also has other employee benefits including tuition reimbursement and green card programs.
