Satish Pamidi

Satish PamidiM.S., Electrical Engineering, University of Idaho, 1971

Satish Pamidi was born in Tumkur, India and raised in Mysore, India. His father was an accounts officer for Indian Railways, while his mother was a homemaker who raised their 5 sons and 3 daughters. As a teenager, Satish had ambitions of moving to the United States to attend graduate school. After completing his undergraduate studies in India, he became the first person in his family to move to the United States.

Satish earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Mysore in India. After graduation he taught for two years at the University, and then moved to the United States to complete a semester of graduate courses at Brigham Young University in Utah. He was admitted to the University of Idaho in 1969 with a Teaching Assistantship, and graduated with a Master of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering in 1971.

After graduating from the University of Idaho, Satish worked for several engineering firms in Chicago where he was responsible for designing electrical systems for a number of prominent buildings and hospitals throughout the Midwest. In 1979, he moved to San Francisco to join Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, a world renowned architectural and engineering firm. He took on the responsibility of designing electrical systems for a number of high-rise structures throughout the world including Russia, Indonesia, and Singapore. During this time, he earned a Certificate of Business Management from the University of California, Berkeley. In 1986, he became an Associate Partner at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, heading the firm’s West Coast Electrical and Mechanical division.

In 1991, Satish was presented with an opportunity to establish and oversee the electrical engineering department for Ajmani & Associates, an engineering firm in San Francisco. Within 2 years, Ajmani & Associates was rebranded as Ajmani & Pamidi. Five years later, Satish acquired the firm and became President and CEO. Over the past twenty-five years, Ajmani & Pamidi has designed electrical and mechanical systems for several prominent projects including the San Francisco International Airport Terminal, San Francisco Giants Baseball Stadium (AT&T Park), Oakland Raiders Football Stadium (O.co Coliseum), Golden State Warriors Basketball Arena (Oracle Arena), San Francisco’s Moscone Convention Center (the City’s largest convention and exhibition complex), as well as several theaters, court houses, museums, residential buildings and high-rise offices. Many of the firm’s projects have been recipients of numerous awards and distinctions. Satish is active in several professional engineering organizations and is a registered professional engineer in multiple states.

Satish and his wife Uma reside in Danville, California. Uma has been a pre-school teacher for over 20 years. Their son, and only child, Shaam is a marketing executive in San Francisco.
