Dr Binay Singh’s Life Story

A story of an entrepreneur who is epitome of optimism.

Dr Binay Singh was born and brought up in a small city of Bihar state in India. From a businessman’s son to one of the most influential personalities of Odessa, Ukraine, Binay’s journey is full of optimism. When he was a child, Dr Binay’s father taught him that everything is possible if we never lose hope. Because of such nurturing, Dr Binay has never considered himself inferior to others.

After passing 12th, Dr Binay went to Ukraine for higher studies but before securing an admission, he needed to learn the Russian language. Therefore, he joined a preparatory course of six months. After a successful completion of the course, he planned to get admission in software faculty at Odessa Polytechnic University. One evening when he was returning to the hostel, he met a person whom he considers an angel sent by the Almighty. He advised Dr Binay to join the Odessa State Maritime Academy. Meeting this man was one of the biggest turning points of Dr Binay’s life as he left the software field and joined the academy to learn Marine Science. During the first six months he failed thrice in Mathematics and due to back to back failures, he was detained from the academy. It was absolutely devastating for him but he did not lose hope. One of his professors asked Dr Binay to learn Maths from her husband. He started learning Maths thrice a week for a couple of months. Due to good coaching, his Maths was improved significantly and he secured a comprehensive score in the subject. After this, Dr Binay had never looked back and continued to study with persistence and conviction that he could do better. Things were not at all easy for him as his father did not have sufficient money to pay his tuition fees and other expenses such as boarding. Dr Binay was disheartened but started to give lessons to his academy mates in various subjects to pay his tuition fees. Moreover, due to his excellent track record in studies after re-joining the academy did not expel him from studying. To cut down the expenses, he moved to the quarter from the hostel where he met an old lady who treated Dr Binay as her son. Years had passed and in 1999, Dr Binay earned Post graduation with flying colours.

The old lady whom Binay called ‘Mamma’, called various companies to help Dr Binay find a job. To their surprise, one company had expressed interest in Dr Binay and called him for an interview. While Dr Binay was being interviewed by the panel of experts for the company, the owner of the company received a call from a potential client. The call was from Arcadia Shipping Private Limited from India and the head of the organisation said that, “He is only interested in doing business if there is a presence of an Indian guy.”

Dr Binay’s optimistic nature had helped him to get the job. Because of his hard work and dedication the company had started earning money and fame. As an officer, Dr Binay played several roles such as an inspector, an interviewer for board examinations, and more. Everything was going well until the day when the company for which Dr Binay had put his blood and sweat, the management expelled him overnight by giving an absolutely vague reason that, “You have to leave the company as you are creating troubles for the management.” This was a huge setback for him but instead of getting broken, Dr Binay stood strong against the hurricane named troubles because he believed that, “Setback gives us the platform to come back.”

While playing multiple roles in the company, he realised that he had the potential to start his own company. In 2003, Dr Binay started his company, ‘Singh Marine Management Limited’ a specialised marine resources company operated in Ukraine and serving worldwide. The company’s clients are located in 20+ countries which is a testimonial of Dr Binay’s optimism.

In the year 2017, Dr Binay was awarded as ‘The Most Charismatic Personality of the Year’ by Sailor Today.
