Kashkari joined the Treasury as a senior adviser under President George W. Bush in 2006. When the financial crisis erupted, he was confirmed as assistant secretary of the Treasury and helped to write the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act.

He remained at the Treasury after President Barack Obama took office, returning to California in 2009 to become managing director and head of Global Equities at PIMCO, which helps public employees meet their retirement goals. He recently left PIMCO to pursue other opportunities in public service.

Sacramento Business Review is a biannual publication produced in a partnership between Sacramento State and the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Society of Sacramento to provide a comprehensive assessment of sectors in the regional economy.
