The recent first round of the Iranian elections somewhat resembled the rise to power of the promising Mohammed Khatami first time round in 1999.

Political Maverick Ravi Singh Named Rising Star in Campaign and Election Industry

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) June 10, 2007 -- It is not every day you see a gentleman wearing a turban among political consultants or candidates, but 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.

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

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.

Despite the obstacles or maybe because of them, Singh drew from his strong family values and a love for community and created one of the top campaign and election technology companies operating today, His 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.

This year's "Rising Stars" form the best in the political consulting industry and are changing the landscape of politics. Singh's nonpartisan Internet-based firm currently assists several 2008 presidential candidates. His accomplishments 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. He was also the first Asian American Sikh with a turban to run for office in the state of Illinois.

Looking back at that prophetic moment when Singh told his father that he would make a difference in the world of American and international politics, it is easy to see his mark on e-democracy. Singh is careful to honor his origins and beliefs in his capacity as CEO, proving once again that when it comes right down to it, leaders come from different backgrounds and experiences. They are easy to spot, just follow the trail of excellence.

"This honor means a great deal as it is recognition from my colleagues," said Singh. "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."
