Our Team

Inderpal Singh

President

Inderpal Singh is Founder and Managing Director of Northshore Partners, a boutique management and technology consulting firm. Previously he worked with the Executive team at the world’s largest hedge fund, Bridgewater Associates. He has also served as a Senior Vice President at HSBC North America and as a Consultant with McKinsey & Company in the financial services and insurance sectors. He started his professional career at Microsoft, where he led the release of Microsoft Windows and Office product features. He holds an Honors B.Math in Computer Science from the University of Waterloo (Canada), and an MBA in Finance, Marketing and Technology from the Kellogg School of Management.

Bhai Kahn Singh Nabha, in Mahan Kosh, said "A Sikh, who gives Guru’s Dasvandh out of the money earned by honest means earns praise and glory in the world." Given how important the concept of Dasvandh is in Sikhi, I was worried that it was slipping away amongst us young Sikhs in North America. I wanted to find a way to make it incredibly easy to find projects that spoke to each person within the community.

Manpreet Singh

Treasurer

Manpreet Singh is a local entrepreneur and investor in South Florida. He is also Managing Partner and Co-Founder of Alpha Atlantic Capital, a private equity firm that owns multifamily assets across the U.S. Previously, he was a Consultant with McKinsey & Company, where he focused on serving healthcare and hospital clients. He was also Strategy Director at Kaplan Higher and Professional Education. Manpreet graduated summa cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania, with a B.A. in Economics and a B.S. in Economics (concentration in Finance) from the Wharton School. He holds an MBA in Marketing, Social Enterprise, Management & Strategy, and Managerial Analytics from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.

We often hear "if the Sikh community had more money, it could accomplish so much" or "I want to give but don't know where to donate." I'm hoping that DVN will play a part in helping to alleviate some of these frustrations.

Mandeep Singh

Secretary

Mandeep Singh has an extensive background in retail management, with specific expertise in operational turnarounds. He has been instrumental to the progress of a number of non-profit initiatives, primarily in the space of Sikh youth education. He has led the coordination of various Sikh youth camps and retreats, as well as conferences, symposiums and sports tournaments over the past 14 years. He holds a degree in Management Information Systems from the University of Missouri.

Quite honestly, my involvement with DVN is selfish. After hearing of the DVN model, I realized my own shortcomings in practicing this aspect of my Rehit. My hope is by being involved, I will bring Dasvandh into my daily practice and realize the necessity in giving towards the Guru's work in all forms.
