Diversant acquires Minneapolis-based IT staffing firm

Red Bank-based Diversant, a certified minority business enterprise and an IT staffing firm, announced Monday it has acquired Alliance of Computer Professionals, a Minneapolis-based IT staffing company.

The acquisition, Diversant said, will build upon its current footprint in the Minneapolis and Atlanta markets.

“We are pleased to extend a warm welcome to ACP staff employees, consultants, and clients,” John Goullet, chairman and co-founder of Diversant, said. “ACP is a great fit for our growing organization and complements our overall ability to expand our service offerings to a wider range of clients. This strategic investment enhances our capability to assist more companies with finding the right talent to support their technology projects and initiatives.”

Diversant, which was founded in 2005 and has an annual revenue of $185 million, specializes in IT staffing including contract and contract-to-hire placements.

“In addition to being a great culture fit for our employees, the integration of these two dynamic companies also provides new resources and capabilities to our organization,” Mike Folken, owner of ACP, said “By being part of a larger organization, we now have the ability to deliver additional service offerings to our clients and offer more career opportunities to our consultants and internal employees.”
