Aquent is a staffing company specialized in placing temporary employees in marketing and creative industries. According to Staffing Industry Analysts, it is among the "largest marketing/creative staffing firms in the United States". Harvard College students John Chuang, Mia Wenjen and Steve Kapner in 1986 founded a typesetting business from the Harvard dorm. The business grew and went into temporary staffing related to Mac training, changing its name to MacTemps. The name would change again to Aquent, which means "not a follower" in Latin. The company has grown substantially and entered into new business areas through acquisitions.
