Q&A with Doug Overman 

Doug also discusses why he often changes his appearance.


D: Doug, we are honored to have you on our team. Thank you for all that you do every day to support our clients. We want to take this time to highlight your achievement as part of our Consultant Spotlight Program.  This is also a great opportunity for us to learn more about you on a personal level. First question is what motivated you to pursue an IT career?

DO: “My father was a computer systems programmer working in the textile industry and that sparked my interest. I have always enjoyed working in an industry where information can be shared and stored across multiple platforms and the advancements in the past 5 years keeps me even more eager for new challenges.”

D: What project and accomplishments are you most proud of?

DO: “I am post proud of the relationships that I have established while here at Wells Fargo, those that were needed to successfully complete my tasks. Most of the team members involved in the projects that I’ve supported have been very cooperative. I have to say that winning over some of the most challenging team members and gaining their respect was the satisfying.”


D:  How do you spend your free time when you are not at work?

DO: “My free time, I enjoy spending with my wife, Sandy, and our 10-year old son, Max. We have two other children, Rick and Bethany, who have their own lives now and a 2-year old grandson, Benjamin from Bethany. We enjoy camping, biking, music, and watching movies together. Movies have to be my favorite though and I can usually identify any movie that I’ve seen just by watching a short clip.”


D:  What motivational quote gets you going?

DO: “My father, Ernest Overman, now no longer with us in this world, always had a saying that sticks with me to this day – more of a rhyme really. 

‘If a task is once begun, never leave it until it’s done. If a task is great or small, do it well or not at all.’  

That is a standard quality that shapes my work ethic and has been the foundation of any success that can be attributed to me.”


D:  What has been your experience with DIVERSANT?

DO: “I have had a great experience working with DIVERSANT, from the very first phone call I received to each meeting after. Susan Shelton was my first contact and was very personable and enthusiastic. Brianna Vogue was a whirlwind of information and exuberance. Jessica Sirekis has and is engaged, caring, and confident in my success here at the company.”

D: Are there any other fun facts that you would like to share with us?

DO: “I am a huge Batman fan and play all of the Batman themed video games with my youngest son, Max. I also decorate my cubicle with Batman themed items.”

“Also, I often change my appearance to keep things interesting. I sometimes shave my head in the summer but grow a goatee. Currently I’m letting my hair grow 10 inches (currently it is only 4 inches since last shaving it at the end of July). My plan is to donate it to children who have lost their hair as a result of undergoing cancer treatments. I read that I can dye it before cutting it off which will prevent them from looking old with the grey hair. More information on hair donation can be found at locksoflove.org.”



On behalf of DIVERSANT and our client, thank you, Doug Overman, for your excellent contributions!
