This commitment to 'Seva' in everything that we do is the single most important discriminator for our firm - and one that will continue to fuel our on-going community service efforts.

Sevatec, Inc. (Sevatec), a leading National Security firm delivering Agile Development and DevOps, Data Sciences, Cyber Engineering, and Cloud solutions for the federal government, announced today that its Founder & CEO Sonny Kakar was honored with the Executive Leader of the Year award by the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce in recognition of the firm's commitment to social responsibility and serving the broader community.

This award is presented a DC metro region executive for outstanding contributions to their company and above-and-beyond leadership in the community during the past year.

"We're proud to honor Sonny Kakar and Sevatec, a perfect example of the strong commitment to community common throughout Northern Virginia," said Northern Virginia Chamber President & CEO Jim Corcoran. "Through their leadership and efforts, they make meaningful contributions to the well-being of our community."

Seva, a Punjabi word that means "Inspired to Serve" permeates the culture across Sevatec. Since its founding in 2003, Sevatec has consistently fostered an action-oriented culture of service - to each Sevatec employee, to every customer, to the US taxpayer, and to our community. In 2016, Kakar launched the SevaTruck Foundation, the only local food truck registered as a non-profit 501(c)(3), to serve underserved youth and veterans across the metro area with free, hot, nutritious meals.

"I am so humbled by what this recognition means for everyone in our firm," said Kakar. "While our Team has always worked super hard to serve critical National Security missions leveraging the most advanced technology solutions, they always find time to prioritize community service through personal volunteering efforts and financial donations. This commitment to 'Seva' in everything that we do is the single most important discriminator for our firm - and one that will continue to fuel our on-going community service efforts."

Winners were selected by a panel of business leaders actively involved in the Northern Virginia Chamber and the local community and have significant involvement in Corporate Social Responsibility efforts, both personally and professionally. This award was presented at the annual Outstanding Corporate Citizenship Awards Luncheon at the Hilton McLean in Tysons Corner, Virginia on June 14th.
