Tara Dianne Teelucksingh Jardine was raised to in the business world being the daughter for Horace & Harriet Teelucksingh who owned National Films, Trinity Films, National Cinemas in Trinidad & Tobago and businesses in the entertainment industry in Guyana, Suriname and Antigua. She returned to Trinidad after completing a Finishing Course plus secretarial in English, Spanish & French in England and worked in the family’s business. After it was sold, she worked with the British High Commission and then entered the world of shipping as Sales Representative for Emery Worldwide for Trinidad & Tobago which was then extended to 8 islands in the Caribbean. Tara moved on to be Island Manager for Tropical Shipping in Trinidad after which she decided to launch her own business.
Twin Island Shipping Agencies Ltd. was founded by Ms. Tara Dianne Teelucksingh in 1990. Ms. Teelucksingh did not target shipping lines already calling Trinidad & Tobago but went out to compel shipping lines to make Trinidad a scheduled port of call. This task took approximately 2 years of showing proof that it would be profitable to the shipping line. In March 1992 we had our first vessel which is when she was joined by Stuart Jardine.
