Major Houston-Headquartered Staffing Firm DiverseStaff, Inc. Changes Ownership and Name

HOUSTON--()--Today, the DiverseStaff executives announced Carla Lane, the new president and chief executive officer, will take the helm of the company, and the company’s name will change to DiverseStaff a Lane Staffing Company. Lane purchased the company’s brand name from DiverseStaff, Inc.’s former President and Chief Executive Officer David Harris. DiverseStaff a Lane Staffing Company is a comprehensive employment-solution provider.

Lane joined DiverseStaff, Inc. in 2003 as senior vice president and chief operating officer and was responsible for the company's overall financial strategy and financial processes as well as branch operations in Houston. Since that time, she has transformed its business strategy, adding new higher-margin business lines and increasing community involvement.

“I look forward to continuing to build upon the successes of the prior leadership,” said Lane. “We’ve grown the footprint of the company by nine states and expanded our client base of Fortune 100 and 200 clients. This year, we are implementing a new direction for the company that will allow us to serve our clients and our job seekers at a higher level of expertise.”

Under the new Lane Staffing Company umbrella organization, seven operations have been established:

1. DiverseRecruiting Specialist – Permanent placement, direct hire and specialized recruiting

2. DiverseScreening & Testing – Pre-employment screening and testing

3. DiverseStaff – Temporary and contract staffing

4. DiverseTraining – Employer training, employee training programs and workforce development

5. DiversePayroll Partners – Payroll processing and tax compliance

6. DiverseHR Consultants – Employment administration, benefits, compliance and safety programs

7. DiverseBizJobs.com – Job posting and job search Web site

“We found that our clients are looking for one company to handle their entire employment needs with precision and professionalism,” said Lane. “This is our specialty, and the new umbrella organization clearly defines our staffing approach to provide comprehensive employment solutions to our clients and excellent training and employment opportunities to a multi-cultural workforce.”

DiverseStaff a Lane Staffing Company, currently operates in Houston, Dallas/Ft. Worth and Port Arthur, Texas; Orlando, Fla. Clients and associates are served in Arkansas, the District of Columbia, Louisiana, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Minnesota, Massachusetts, Oklahoma and Texas.

Lane’s business acumen has been honored extensively. Today, Lane will receive the Emerging Ten (E-10) Award presented by the Houston Minority Business Council (HMBC). The E-10 is presented to an elite group of minority-owned businesses that have overcome challenges and setbacks, yet stayed focused on long-term goals and set trends. In Sept., the HMBC also presented Lane with the Strategic Alliances Award for forming strategic alliances between prime vendors and minority subcontractors.
