Allianz Insurance Lanka Ltd., one of Sri Lanka’s leading insurers, was recognised for its excellence in salesmanship at the recently concluded Sri Lanka Institute of Marketing (SLIM) National Sales Congress (NASCO) Awards 2018. The company made history this year with its first ever Best of the Best Award win under the Outstanding Sales Executive/Supervisor category. Ultimately, Allianz concluded the night with two gold and three bronze awards.

Allianz’s Malinda Mendis took home the Best of the Best Award for Outstanding Sales Executive/Supervisor and the gold award for the Best Sales Executive/Supervisor – General Insurance. The company’s second gold of the night was awarded to Mahesh Dias in the Best Front Liners – General Insurance category. The company’s three bronze awards were bestowed on Kevin Paul, Vijitha Samarakkodige and Charitha Dushantha for Best Territory Manager – General Insurance; Best Sales Executive/Supervisor – General Insurance; and Best Front Liners – General Insurance, respectively.

Commenting on the success of her team, Allianz Insurance Lanka Ltd. Managing Director Surekha Alles said, “These awards are further validation that we have the best sales force in the industry. Allianz has always secured its position as one of the strongest insurance companies in the market through the sheer will and determination of our team that go the extra mile to ensure that the needs of our customers are consistently met. It is their passion and commitment that drive us forward. Therefore, I am proud to have their tireless efforts recognised at this prestigious forum. However, we at Allianz are not ones to rest on our laurels hence we will continue to nurture their talent and invest further in their development to make them world class players.”

Organised by the Sri Lanka Institute of Marketing, Sri Lanka’s national body of marketing, the National Sales Congress is the only national event that recognises and rewards sales personnel covering a spectrum of business sectors. The awards aim to recognise, motivate and nurture the sales fraternity of the country by enhancing their learning curve in salesmanship.
