Dewayne Chappell

Our CEO - Dewayne Chappell

Divergys Was Founded On Principles And Core Values.

The year was 2003 and Dewayne had left his six-figure corporate IT income to start an IT company with his business partner just 3 years earlier. In the 3 years since starting, the company had seen some success and growth. One day his business partner came into Dewayne’s office and said he wanted to sell the company and wanted Dewayne to “fix” the books by making a second set and padding the profits so it would look better to the potential buyer. In that moment, Dewayne knew that the partners were not on the same page and didn’t have the same moral values.

Two weeks later, Dewayne, the partners brother and another employee walked away. A short time later in Dewayne’s upstairs bedroom facing a pile of attorney’s fees and a lawsuit against Dewayne, his wife Raquel and the company’s only other employee, Divergys, a values-driven business was born to provide honest and responsive IT services to small and medium sized businesses in the greater Houston area. Dewayne fought the lawsuit, paid his and his employee’s attorney fees, paid the employee a salary and didn’t take a paycheck for the first eight months because it was the right thing to do.

“Even after this, a challenging first two years and many sacrifices we persisted because we truly believed in our mission and our goals. We knew we could accomplish it to help our clients evolve with technology and get the support they truly deserved.” – Dewayne Chappell, President and CEO
