Biden nominates Pakistani-American as deputy director of Small Business Administration

President of the United States Joe Biden has nominated Pakistani-American, Dilawar Syed, to serve as deputy director of Small Business Administration (SBA), according to a statement released by the White House.

Dilawar Syed confirmed the news on his twitter post saying “deeply humbled & honoured” over the nomination while the appointment is yet to be confirmed by Senate.

“I will put my heart and soul into helping small businesses everywhere in these challenging times,” Dilawar wrote in the post.

Dilawar holds an MBA from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and earned a BA in Economics and Computer Science from The University of Texas at Austin. He immigrated to the US from Pakistan as a freshman student to attend The College of Wooster in Ohio, the White House statement said.

Dilawar currently serves as the president and chief executive officer of Lumiata, an “AI for healthcare company focused on reducing healthcare costs and improving patient outcomes”. He was previously the president at Freshworks where he worked in scaling the software company’s products to thousands of small and medium-scale businesses, according to the statement.

The statement noted that Dilawar had a history of furthering civic efforts “at the federal, state, and local level focusing on economic growth and entrepreneurship”.

“He served on President Obama’s White House Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) and chaired the White House Initiative on AAPIs’ Economic Growth Committee.”

“In that role, Syed led the administration’s engagement with small businesses across the US after the passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.”
