Inderpreet Singh, member of the SikhRI Executive Board Committee, has commenced the search for a new CEO. Harinder Singh will provide guidance to SikhRI in order to facilitate a smooth transition.
“My journey with SikhRI commenced with an impetus to build a lasting Sikh institution. I’m happy to be leaving behind an organization that is established and mature in both its mandate and operational capacity,” said Harinder Singh.
