Jeffrey DeVine founded DeVine Consulting in 1998.
Originally established in Union City, the firm is currently located in Fremont, California, with satellite offices in Monterey and San Diego, CA, and Stennis Center, MS.
From a young age
Jeffrey was always fascinated with computer graphics as a child, even making his first computer application at age 12. So it only fitted he’d make a career out of what he loved.
It started with an idea
Once Jeffrey received his diploma from the University of California, Davis, the eager graduate landed his first job at Hewlett Packard. Later, he became an independent consultant for Fujitsu. Building on this experience, Jefferey merged their practices to create an improved business methodology. He saw the opportunity to provide higher quality work for substantially less than what businesses were paying at the time. He and a couple of his colleagues got together and manifested DeVine Consulting, Inc. Once DeVine landed a project with General Electric to work on an advisory software package for fossil-fired power plants, Jeffrey dedicated all of his efforts toward the firm. Some of the firm’s first clients included Foothill College, San Joaquin Delta College, and the Orange County Transportation Authority.
In 2002, DeVine was awarded the GSA Schedule 70.
In 2004, DeVine joined the SBA 8(a) Program.
In 2011, DeVine was awarded GSA STARS II.
Working through the struggles
DeVine took a huge hit in 2010 during the economic downturn. With budget restraints and ever-changing technology, business was slow. In 2011, DeVine created an Information Technology Security Audit application to examine IT infrastructure and its vulnerabilities. That application was able to support our clients in examining their computer processes and improve upon them. With innovative applications and DeVine’s improved mission to deliver superior services, it has grown exponentially in a competitive industry.
Current Projects and Future Goals
DeVine is presently working on projects for federal, state, and local governments and commercial entities. At DeVine, we believe in providing products and services that enlighten our clients and empower them. Our goal is to help them achieve their goals.
