Our Story

Our mission expands on the philosophy of Seva, starting with a commitment to teamwork, innovation, collaboration, and accountability. This collective energy is consistently focused on customer success. As stewards of government initiatives and associated project investments on behalf of taxpayers, we are also responsible for serving our local communities. While we have prioritized community service since our inception, in 2016 we launched SevaTruck, a non-profit food truck serving hot, nutritionally balanced meals to Title 1 schools and veterans across the DMV area. Since COVID-19, we have increased our service to 300-500 hot meals Monday – Friday, helping support the distribution of nutritious food to those most impacted by the pandemic.

Our Mission

We are trusted talent, inspired to serve, partnered with government, to protect and improve the lives of Americans.

Letter From Our Founder

Sevatec based its name on the concept of “Seva,” a Punjabi word that means “Serving a Greater Purpose”.

Expanding on the philosophy of Seva, our mission and core values reflect this founding principle, and we attract, develop, and retain our team because of our shared belief system.   Our service culture begins with a commitment across the firm to each other. A commitment to teamwork, innovation, collaboration, and accountability. This collective team energy remains consistently focused on our customer’s most pressing challenges and delivering customer success.

True to the DNA of our company, we will not sit by the sidelines and be an observer as a wave of racial injustice sweeps our nation.  Our nation’s core values rests on the foundation that there is “liberty and justice for all”.   Accordingly, we have mobilized the resources and the passion of our employees and our partners to create opportunity through education.

When I refer to Serving a Greater Purpose – what I really mean is serving needs beyond ourselves.  Making contributions that are bigger than each of us individually and bigger than our company.  This is what motivates us to make positive mission impacts for the missions we serve; this is what compels us to build a team of individuals who share a common belief system; and this is what inspires us to appreciate our corporate responsibility in investing in critical needs across our local communities.

Whether you are an existing, or potential customer, employee, or partner, Sevatec is committed to you. We look forward to our journey together, built on trust, inspiration, and eternal optimism.

– Sonny Kakar, Founder & CEO
