About Sumit

Sumit grew up in Woodward, IA, and graduated from Woodward-Granger High School in 2004. He continued his education at Iowa State University where he earned two bachelor’s degrees (Management and Marketing) and graduated in 2008.

Growing up Sumit worked in his family’s business, primarily working at their local grocery store in Woodward. Upon graduation, Sumit along with a business partner created an online grocery store serving the Ames and Iowa State community with grocery delivery. In the fall of 2009, he moved his career focus into the financial industry working for a national bank. In his 10 years there, Sumit held several positions that allowed him to travel the country working with a range of customers from small family-owned businesses to publicly traded corporations. His experiences allowed him to grow personally and professionally.

In 2018 Sumit transitioned to the dental distribution industry in a regional leadership position working with dental offices in a 5-state region (IA, MN, ND, SD, NE). 

Sumit lives in Waukee and enjoys its continued growth. He especially enjoys how the Des Moines metro is a large city with a small-town feel. In his free time, Sumit actively sits on the Board of Directors for First Tee Central Iowa, golfing and spending time with his family and friends
