I’d also like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to Romesh for a decade long partnership and for the extraordinary vision and dedication that drove SimCentric’s success over the past 10 years.”

Prior to taking up this new appointment, Abeygoonaratne functioned as the General Manager and Chief Operating Officer of SimCentric Technologies. He was overseeing the development and quality assurance, project management, and the general administrative operations of the company on both local and overseas fronts.
