John Goullet, an IT tech staffing professional and entrepreneur, began his career by working as an IT consultant after graduating from Ursinus College with his Master’s in Computer Science. In 1994, he switched to the IT staffing industry. By working both of these industries, Goullet earned a broad knowledge of the entire industry, which he applied when he founded Info Technologies.
Info Technologies was a company that provided IT staffing solutions to companies all over the country, even some leading Fortune 500 companies. His leadership proved successful when within only 5 years, Info Technologies had a worth of over $30 million. The company was even placed on the list of privately held firms growing the fastest by Inc. Magazine.
Goullet wanted to take his business further by partnering with others. He merged his company with Diversant, Inc., creating Diversant LLC. There he became the new company’s Principal. At Diversant he is responsible for forming strategies that help the company conquer challenges of the ever-changing IT industry. Under his leadership, the company has become an industry leader.
With Goullet’s direction, Diversant has excelled, even in economic downturn. He encourages his staff to perform their duties while maintaining ethical behavior and having respect and discipline. His belief in teamwork has allowed him to build Diversant into the biggest African-American owned company in the country. Diversant also now holds the certification of being a Minority-Owned business, and sits on the top of the industry.
Goullet does his job by paying attention to what is happening within labor markets. He notices that there always seems to be a shortage of IT professional in the industry because the country doesn’t seem to graduate enough students with those particular skills. His job is to see what technologies will be in demand the greatest and start creating pipelines that clients are most likely to require.
He believes that hiring the very best people is the key to a company’s success. Goullet believes in giving employees a piece of the company and always hiring a lot of trainees. Building success requires hiring hundreds of people and empowering his associates with training, mentoring, and management.
