Kapil is originally from Calcutta, India, but spent most of his life in the Chicago area. He moved to the South Bay in 2005 after spending the previous year traveling with his wife, Sandesha, in Europe, Asia and South America. In addition to providing unforgettable experiences, their travels have provided a stronger appreciation for the environment and the importance of conservation. Some jarring experiences included helplessly watching seals with debilitating injuries from fishing nets in the Galapagos Islands and walking through thousands of pieces of plastic washed up on previously pristine beaches in Indonesia.

As a Partner and Portfolio Manager at Ares Management, Kapil’s work involves managing high yield debt strategies. He holds a B.S. from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign College of Business in Finance and an M.B.A. from Northwestern University, Kellogg School of Management in Strategy and Finance. Additionally, Mr. Singh is a CFA® charterholder.

Kapil is honored to serve on the Grades of Green board and believes strongly in the organization’s core mission of creating an eco-friendly mindset and lifestyle from an early age. Kapil, Sandesha, and their daughters, Reyna and Zara, love being active in the South Bay community through its schools, sports and various volunteer organizations. The family also enjoys international travel, camping, tennis, volleyball and ocean sports.
