Top professional Jayanthi Dharmasena has become the first female director on the Board of diversified blue chip Hayleys Plc in its 140-year history. 



Jayanthi, who serves as the Managing Director of Hayleys Agriculture and its subsidiaries and as a Group Management Committee member, was appointed to the Board last week as an Executive Director. Hayleys Plc is controlled by business leader Dhammika Perera.
