J. Kent Staffing, a Denver Icon, Completes Stock Sale Oct. 18, 2017

DENVER, December 12, 2017

Since 1979, J. Kent Staffing, Denver’s leading independent, woman-owned provider of professional temporary and direct hire staffing solutions servicing a diverse set of industries and sectors, today announced that on October 18, 2017, the company was sold. 

J. Kent, a Denver icon, was founded by J. Kent Gervasini, CPC, CSP in 1979 as a direct hire, search and placement firm; a temporary division was added in 1980. Gervasini reflected, ”It was the first direct hire, recruiting agency that positioned itself in the Denver market to provide 100% fee paid, full-time employment opportunities for administrative and clerical candidates and offered a 90 Day Guarantee. This was a very bold move in 1979.”  

Today the company benefits from long standing business relationships and significant staffing contracts. Through its temporary staffing platform the Company, in 2012, expanded its overall footprint with a 5-year GSA Contract, and in August of this year was awarded a GSA Contract extension through September 2022. “A federal GSA Schedule 736 contract extension award is a significant driver for staffing growth and expansion opportunities," said Gervasini.

The company was acquired through a stock sale by Karen Booher, Vice President, from sole stockholder, J. Kent Gervasini, President and Founder. “All employees of the company have been retained as well as J. Kent’s central Denver corporate office location; the transition has been seamless. Our dedicated team looks forward to continued growth and expansion by providing, the same first-class staffing services that J. Kent has delivered for the past 38 plus years. We are all excited to be part of this new J. Kent Staffing chapter," said Booher.
