Aitken Spence among the Top 10 Most Admired Companies of Sri Lanka
Aitken Spence was recognised among the Top 10 Most Admired Companies of Sri Lanka organised by AICPA & CIMA and ICCSL (International Chamber of Commerce Sri Lanka). The top 10 included the most elite corporates in Sri Lanka.
The gala event was attended by Colombo’s top corporate leaders as well as diplomats from several Embassies. The Chief Guest of the event was Mr. Saman Ekanayake, Secretary to H.E. the President of Sri Lanka and the event was also graced by the Deputy Head of Mission for Japan in Sri Lanka, Mr. Katsuki Kotaro who delivered the keynote speech.
The evaluations involved included a Financial Evaluation done by a team of CIMA members (CGMAs), after which the KPMG team ratified the scoring and selected the Top 20 organisations for the next round. The second round included a presentation by the companies to the panel of judges. This was the most exciting element of the competition as almost all presentations had the Top Management present. Based on the feedback received from the panel of judges, Aitken Spence was commended for the best presentation.
