ICC mourns former ICC Chairman Hari Shankar Singhania
The global membership and staff of ICC have learned with great sadness of the passing of Hari Shankar Singhania on 22 February.
Mr Singhania, 79, served
ICC with devotion and distinction for several decades, and notably as Chairman
of the organization in 1993 and 1994. He was also
President of the Federation of Indian Chambers
of Commerce and Industry and of JK Organization.
A noble man of great
integrity and dignity, Mr Singhania was held in high esteem across the globe by
those who had the good fortune to work with him. Painstaking in his
encouragement of excellence, he led others with natural authority, courtesy and
kindness, always ready to listen before taking decisions. Though deeply
attached to his native India, he was an internationalist with an infinite
interest in the big issues affecting business and mankind across the globe.
During the almost two
decades since his chairmanship of ICC, Mr Singhania remained interested and
involved in the work of ICC, and honoured the organization with his continued
participation in ICC events both in India and elsewhere. The ICC global family
held him in very fond and respectful regard and will miss him.
We send our profound
condolences both to his family and to ICC’s friends in the Indian business
community in which Mr Singhania played a major leadership role for so many
