SICCI’s new CEO
The Singapore Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry has a new Chief Executive Officer. He is Dinesh Singh and he has joined SICCI from 18 April 2022.
Mr. Dinesh succeeds Mr. Johnson Paul, who returned to the private sector at the end of 2021. The Chairman of SICCI and its board of directors’ thanks Mr. Johnson Paul for his contributions to the apex business chamber of the Indian business community and warmly welcomes Mr. Dinesh Singh to spur the Chamber to even greater heights. Previously Dinesh was the General Manager of the Foundation of Rotary Clubs (Singapore) FRCS, and prior to FRCS he was Membership Director at The National University of Singapore Society – Singapore’s Premier Graduate Club.
“Among my core responsibilities, include overseeing both the subscription revenue and membership growth by constantly developing greater membership value and driving membership campaigns. Here at SICCI, this will be one of my priority areas- to boost the membership of SICCI which has been declining for quite some time. With a growing number of young entrepreneurs in the Indian business community, it is timely to produce some attractive membership packages to bring them on board, tap their ideas and engage and involve them to make SICCI into a stronger apex business organization in Singapore to the pride of the Indian business community”, said Dinesh when asked of some of his immediate priorities and challenges.
Expanding our links far and wide and engaging actively with our partners and stakeholders is another area Dinesh and his team will focus their attention on too, explained SICC Chairman, Dr T Chandroo.
Adds Dr Chandroo, “We are happy that Dinesh is coming on board as he brings with him a wealth of experience in membership organizations, and in charity organizations like the FRCS. This will add immense value to SICCI as we serve SMEs who are recovering post-COVID”
