Management Team

Mr. Gurinder Pal Singh

Mr. Gurinder Sadra is a first generation entrepreneur, with over 12 years’ experience in education consultancy sector. His commitment and strong-headed devotion has guided his team and thousands of his students at SARC to success for over a decade now; all the while holding his principles and ethics in the highest regard. His excellence has garnered him various awards and accolades from Universities and academic institutes from all across Australia and New Zealand for his outstandingly premier services that make him one of the top performing education consultants in the Indian Sub-Continent. Ever since its conception, SARC has maintained its hundred per cent success rate, and continue to do so.

Under his able leadership, SARC has also attained the membership of the prestigious Association of Australian Education Representatives in India (AEERI), thus further substantiating SARC’s unparalleled quality of trusted services.

Other than being the patriarch of SARC, Mr. Sadra is also a dedicated father to the cutest 18-month old twin girls, a huge cricket fan, an enthusiastic swimmer, a chef by hobby, a keen traveller and has toured across the globe and loves to share his travel and life experiences with the students—giving them more than mere technical guidance. His heart-felt dedication towards this vocation also inspired him to publish the first of its kind magazine in 2003 that focused on students planning to study and live abroad.

Other than that, his philanthropic activities are subsumed in his NGO Sadra Foundation which is making relentless efforts towards making education accessible for the financially disabled.
