Veteran State Exec Sah Takes PM Role With SymSoft

Kumar Sah joins the Sacramento web services company after holding a series of increasingly responsible roles in state government. His most recent position with the state was deputy chief information officer for the State Treasurer’s Office.

A technology executive with a deep background in state government has come out of retirement and joined the private sector.

Kumar Sah, who retired last December as deputy chief information officer for the California State Treasurer’s Office, has joined SymSoft as project manager. Sah went to work for the State Franchise Tax Board as a tax auditor in 1992, and he held increasingly responsible management and executive roles in state government including the State Controller’s Office, the State Auditor’s Office, the Department of Child Support Services and the Employment Development Department.

Once he decided to come out of retirement, Sah chose to join SymSoft, an award-winning Sacramento-based company that provides enterprise web solutions to government, businesses, and educational, environmental, health-care, utility and financial organizations.

“SymSoft Solutions has a proven track record and a culture that prides itself in product and service delivery excellence as well as phenomenal customer relationship success,” Sah told Techwire. “That is something that attracts me the most to SymSoft, and it is absolutely my honor and pleasure to be a part of such a fine organization.”

Sah said that with more than 30 years’ experience in private- and public-sector business, “my overarching goal as part of SymSoft’s leadership team is to contribute towards sustaining as well as advancing the organizational robustness, the product/service delivery as well as customer relationships.”

Sah is a graduate of California State University, Sacramento, with a Bachelor of Science degree in business and a focus on business administration, information technology and accountancy. He’s also an alumnus of Sac State’s Leadership for Government Executives program and the Executive Leadership program at the University of California, Davis. He’s also a graduate of the state’s Information Technology Leadership Academy.

“On the personal side, I love to travel and enjoy food, culture, music and arts from all over the world,” Sah told Techwire. “I enjoy yoga meditation, hiking, biking and physical fitness in general. Furthermore, I love to spend lots of my free time in nature, as I find it to be extremely peaceful and tranquil.”
