Awards were given in three industry categories and two organisational sizes to the premier professionals in Sri Lanka culminating in the awarding of the Chartered Management Lifetime Achievement for 2017. 

Sega Nagendra, former Senior Director of Carson Cumberbatch PLC, who still continues to hold many Non-Executive Director positions in companies engaged in diverse business activities, was awarded the most prestigious CMI Lifetime Achievement Award for 2017.

Counting 51 years of experience in management, holding prestigious positions in blue chip companies, leading, guiding and inspiring young and dynamic teams of enthusiastic individuals to be future leaders, ingraining ethics and integrity in to their young minds, he was a true leader in every sense in the Sri Lankan business community.

During his long and distinguished career, he adopted best practices of business, transparency and was aptly rewarded and given due recognition in society.
