Born in Holland and raised in Europe and the United States, Anil Singh-Molares is a global citizen and businessperson. Fluent in Spanish, French, and English, he is a citizen of Spain and permanent resident of the United States.

Drawing on his liberal arts education, cross-cultural upbringing, and managerial skills, Singh-Molares advanced during 1991-2003 from managing a Microsoft foreign language team (40 translators and terminologists) to overseeing all internationalization vendor relations for the company (more than $200 million in annual expenditures).
