SATISH MEHTANI

Founder, President Emeritus

Satish Mehtani is the Founder and first President and CEO of IMMUSA. After successfully running IMMUSA for over 25 years, Satish and the IMMUSA Board has brought in new executive team to lead IMMUSA starting June 2017.

A street in Edison is named ‘Mehtani Way’ in recognition of an Indian American whose portfolio of restaurants has contributed to popularizing Indian cuisine and enriching the culture and economy of the township. As a prominent leader in the Indian community, Mr. Mehtani earned this honor by his humanitarian and civic good works on behalf of people in need around the world. Mr. Mehtani arrived in the U.S. in March 1970 from India where, as an engineer, he had won a ‘Gold Medal’ for the construction of an Indo-Swiss Training Centre for Council of Scientific and Industrial Research. In the first year as an agent in the insurance industry, he broke the 125 year old sales record in New York Life Insurance Company. After that he ventured into the hospitality industry with his wife, Sneh Mehtani, and opened a chain of eleven (11) fine-dining Indian and pan-Asian restaurants in New York, New Jersey and St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. US Congress majority leader Dick Gephardt saluted Satish Mehtani for his humanitarian missions around the world.

In 2008, he launched Edison Day Care Center in partnership with Dr. Patel to provide relief and comfort to seniors, the most vulnerable segment of our society. In 1991, Mr. Mehtani provided humanitarian disaster relief on a major scale in Kuwait, earning the praise of the Kuwaiti royal family. Following September 11th, his staff made 10,000 meals for rescue workers and set up the food distribution on the site. In 1992, Mr. Mehtani was appointed as co-chairman of the National Finance Committee by President Bill Clinton, becoming the first Asian American to hold this vital position. After the tsunami and earthquake in Japan, he and his associate Gita Patel distributed thousands of CDs of healing music to help victims of trauma and depression.

“I have done my best to help the needy in the community where I live and work,” says Mr. Mehtani. He arrived in the US in 1970 as a civil engineer from New Delhi, but found himself working two non-engineering jobs — as a bank teller and a retailer. In a multifaceted career, he has cobbled together an empire of eight restaurants and has become something of a political rainmaker, raising $2 million altogether for Bill Clinton, Bill Bradley and others.
