Colombo, Sri Lanka

I have been in the airline industry for the past 15 years; started my career with SriLankan in customer affairs & service monitoring and moved into sales in 2005. Represented SriLankan in India, Thailand & the Mekong, Offline - Europe, Americas, Asia Pacific & Australia. With my current posting to Kuwait as country manager I am one of the very few at SriLankan Airlines who has worked in managing and enhancing sales in all regions that the airline operates to.

My key milestones with SriLankan are: being the youngest country manager in the airline at the age of 31, contributions made for SriLankan Airlines pitch to join oneworld alliance and establishing a focused strategy for the SriLankan airlines offline & interline markets enhancing the revenue contribution on the routes.

Leadership, Decision making skills, commitment, teamwork, innovation & resilience are strengths which I bring to a project, to ensure its success. I am a fast learner, capable of showing initiative, common sense and strongly believe that I have the capacity to make a positive contribution towards the airline with my experience and out of the box thinking.
