“It is a pleasure to tour a company that is dedicated to professional excellence, diversity, business growth and success in New Jersey,” Guadagno said. “The New Jersey Comeback is taking place in large part because of businesses like DIVERSANT, that have a long-term commitment to and partnership with our state.”
