Boy! Oh Boy- Such a Rising Star award

Few months back, I read one article about him and did not bother. Today, it enforce me to write about this gentleman wearing a turban among political consultants.

He is Ravi Singh, CEO of ElectionMall Technologies, Inc. and an Asian American Sikh, was honored this year with a Rising Star award, one of the most prestigious honors to be given in politics. Every year Campaigns & Elections Magazine identifies individuals who have already made a significant contribution in the area of political consulting and/or advocacy before the age of 35.

Ravi said, "This honor means a great deal as it is recognition from my colleagues and it proves that anything is possible in America. Identity should not be a hindrance to anyone, even after the events of September, 11th. Technology and politics are my passions and I look forward to what lies ahead."

Morgan E. Felchner, editor of Campaigns & Elections said, "We expect great things from the 2007 Rising Stars, through their achievements, they are proving that success truly has no limits."

According to PRWEB, Success may have no limits, but it certainly comes with a cost. Born outside Chicago, in Aurora, Illinois to immigrant parents from India, Singh did not follow his father's desired path to medical or law school, but chose instead to pursue a career in politics. Singh fondly remembers telling his father he would be a rising star someday despite losing his election to the Illinois State House in 1997. Even when told that he must remove his turban to win, he refused and has always maintained that his turban could not be separated from who he is - an Asian American Sikh. While working for the Illinois legislature, he was pigeon-holed and relegated to delivering mail between offices while politicians distanced themselves from his foreign appearance forgetting his American citizenship and identity.

Ravi Singh's pioneering advances have earned him such titles as "Campaign Guru" and "Power Broker" by USA Today Magazine. His company, was profiled in Business Week Magazine as being one of the top political movers and shaker's companies to watch. This year, Singh has been recognized by his peers and the industry he loves as a leader and visionary.

  • In 2007, he is "Rising Stars" form the best in the political consulting industry and are changing the landscape of politics.
  • Ravi's nonpartisan Internet-based firm currently assists several 2008 presidential candidates.
  • He accomplished on both sides of the political aisle include launching the first animated presidential debates in 2004, the first voter toolbar at the Democratic Convention in 2004, and the first audio blog at the Republican Convention in 2004

In May, 2005, Campaign technology company-ElectionMall Technologies, Inc., announced its sponsorship of the Personal Democracy Forum Conference. Ravi said, "New Internet technologies are bringing citizens closer to their elected representatives than ever before. This event is a truly a celebration of voter empowerment"

Ravi Singh became the first Indian American Sikh to graduate from the academy with full military honours as a second lieutenant.
