It was a proud moment for Guyanese-born Indar Singh when he was presented with the distinguished service award by Stacia A. Hylton, Director of the United States Marshals Service, for his outstanding contribution to the accomplishment of the Mission of the Department of Justice, United States Marshals Service.
The award was announced during the Director’s annual awards ceremony held last May. This award is the highest presented to employees who have made major contributions to the achievement of the Agency’s Mission.
The United States Attorney-General, Loretta E. Lynch, also participated in the ceremony. She delivered the keynote address.
Singh is known throughout the Department of Justice as an expert in the financial arena. Among the attributes for which he received recognition were his integrity and sound financial advice. Although Singh is considered to be an institution, he was also recognized for being a change agent who was always looking ahead and applying lessons learnt from his years of experience.
Singh is regarded as a tremendous asset to the Department of Justice. He serves as a role model for all employees involved in financial activities.
Singh joined the Department of Justice, US Marshals Service in the spring of 1998 as a Systems Accountant. In 2009 he rose to the rank of Chief of Finance and continues to serve in this position to date.
Singh’s career in the USA began when he graduated from the University of Maryland in Accounting. He immediately moved to the next level by undertaking studies to sit for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) examination.
This demanding course of study required hard work, dedication, perseverance and sacrifice. Singh rose to the challenge, and achieved the professional CPA credentials, all the while being fully employed as a Financial/Accounting Consultant.
Singh’s career in finance and accounting had its genesis way back in 1973 when as a teenager living in Guyana he began working for the Accounting/Auditing firm of Barcellos & Company, then located in Kingston, Georgetown, a few doors from where he lived.
His tenure with Barcellos & Company lasted ten years during which he was appointed Director and then Chairman of Bardin Limited, a sister firm of Barcellos & Company, while still attending to his auditing/accounting duties.
Still young, ambitious, and equipped with a wealth of knowledge and experience in accounting and taxation, he transitioned to becoming a full-time Executive of Bardin Limited, a company specializing in Accounting, Taxation and Secretarial Services. Singh held these positions until he migrated to the USA in 1989 to join his wife, Guyanese-born Mary Rose Correia.
Singh’s working life in Guyana was practiced during a turbulent period in the country’s history when citizens were experiencing severe economic hardships, and social and political unrest became a regular feature of daily life.
Singh has served both his country of birth and his adopted homeland with distinction. His achievements are testimony to his courage and determination and his ability to overcome obstacles.
There can be no doubt that Singh has been a great source of inspiration to all with whom he is associated.
His family members residing in Guyana, are his sisters Ranjana Williams of the CARICOM Secretariat and Radica Abdel-Bari; his brother, Tapeshwar Singh, former Government Senior Agriculture Officer; his brothers-in law Ronald Williams of Apex Insurance Brokers Inc., and Abubakir Abdel-Bari, Medical Doctor; his nieces and nephews.
