  • JKH is the most admired corporate house once again
  • ComBank, MAS, Unilever and Dialog make up top five

The 11th edition of LMD’s Most Respected entities in Sri Lanka has been released, its publisher Media Services announced yesterday.

The special annual edition notes: “As in the prior year, the 11th issue of this special edition measures peer perceptions of corporate admiration – i.e. the Most Respected rankings – using the Olympic Ranking System, so Sri Lanka’s most admired organisations are being conferred gold, silver and bronze medals, as a show of their strength in the eyes of peers.”

It states that JKH “sits comfortably atop the Most Respected hall of fame for a record 10th occasion. It has 249 gold, 99 silver and 56 bronze medals to its name.

JKH’s aggregate medals tally (404) – although lower than in the prior year – is leaps and bounds ahead of second-placed Commercial Bank, which has 98 gold, 97 silver and 57 bronze. The only other corporate with more than 50 gold medals in the bag is MAS Holdings (it has 61).”

LMD’s 2015 movers and shakers are led by Hemas Holdings (up seven places to No. 11), Lanka Orix Leasing Company (LOLC) and Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) – both five places higher, at No. 9 and No. 12 respectively, Hatton National Bank (HNB) (up two notches to 14th place) and Sampath Bank (gaining a spot to rest at No. 7).

Three new entrants grace the Most Respected Top 20 this year – People’s Leasing & Finance (at No. 15), Ceylon Biscuits (No. 17) and Central Finance (No. 18).

LMD’s Most Respected rankings are based on an exclusive survey conducted by leading research form Nielsen, of 800 working people from among the LMD 100 companies and other leading corporations in Sri Lanka. The survey was completed in April, says a spokesperson for Media Services.

He says that the special edition is now available at leading supermarkets and bookshops across the island and the main rankings appear on LMD’s website (www.LMD.lk).
