Glenn

Glenn Diersen

Founder & President

Glenn has always been an entrepreneur at heart, launching a lawn maintenance business at the age 12 and a successful painting business in college.

Upon graduating with a BS degree in International Business and a BA degree in Spanish from James Madison University in 2013, Glenn found his niche in the technology human capital industry, when he started his career at The Select Group (approximately a $150 million/year IT staffing company) in 2014 as a Technical Recruiter. He was promoted to Account Management within four months which at that time was the fastest promotion in company history. One year later, he carved out a role as the first-ever Account Executive of Government Services at The Select Group Federal and ended 2017 as the overall Top Producer, finishing ahead of over 200 other producers! Just a few months later he founded Summit Human Capital.
His successes fueled his entrepreneurial spirit and in April of 2018 he launched Summit Human Capital, an IT human capital solutions firm headquartered in Richmond, Virginia. Fast forward to 2020 and Summit Human Capital boasts over 30 active clients across eight states with over 30 Associates and has surpassed $30,000 in weekly spread.

In 2019, its first full year, the company reported just shy of $2 million in revenue and grew by more than 3,000 percent from 1 to 33 Full-Time Associates.

Glenn is a recipient of the prestigious SIA (Staffing Industry Analysts) ’40 under 40,’ an award honoring the workforce ecosystem’s next generation of leaders.

He quickly established himself as a top recruiter in the company, and within 9 months, was promoted to Account Management. As an Account Manager, Matthew broke a company record by compiling $10k of weekly spread in only 4 months. He was presented a companywide award for Account Manager “Rookie of the Year”.

While Managing Director at Diversant, in September of 2017, Matthew launched a start-up office in a 2 desk WeWork space - no clients, $0 in revenue. 20 months later, with all homegrown accounts, the team hit a remarkable milestone and All-Time High of $45k in weekly spread, a run-rate of ~$10 million annually, and 157% of goal – including a streak of 8 consecutive quarters.
