Leo Burnett Sri Lanka, the local office of the global advertising network Leo Burnett Worldwide recently celebrated its 19th anniversary of operations in Colombo. 

As part of the anniversary celebrations, 110Burnetters came together to commemorate the agency’s 19 years of success. The proceedings kicked off with the lighting of 110 oil lamps by each member of staff to symbolise each employee’s creative spirit. A lemon sapling was also planted at the head office, with the soil brought from each Burnetter’s home, as a symbol of unity, new beginnings and celebration of teamwork. The festivities thereafter concluded with the team enjoying breakfast and a morning of fellowship together. 



In an effort to give back whilst celebrating their success so far, the agency team also partnered with the Sri Lanka Blood Bank, to host a blood donation drive at the head office. A total of 24 donors including many Burnetters came forward and donated 20 pints of blood which will go to help those in need. 

To top off celebrations this year and staying true to its ongoing commitment of delivering creative excellence, the agency also scored a rare 8 ball at the GPC (Global Product Committee) for innovation, for its Petal Paint campaign for JAT Holdings. The GPC is held four times a year, to internally evaluate the agency’s work on a scale of 1 to 10. The Petal Paint campaign scored the fifth 8 ball in the local agency’s history, and the second within the last year.

Commenting on Leo Burnett Sri Lanka clocking 19 years, Leo Burnett Sri Lanka CEO Arosha Perera, said: “We are very pleased to celebrate our 19th anniversary in Sri Lanka. We remain dedicated to building on the legacy of creativity and excellence bar none on which the local Leo Burnett office was founded in Colombo nearly two decades ago.This year, we are delighted that we managed to bag an 8 ball at the GPC, making the occasion all the more special and memorable. As we look back at the past 19 years, it brings us pride to see how far we’ve come and how we have grown from strength to strength. As we look to the future, we will continue harnessing our creativity, passion and drive, delivering innovative and result-orientated creative work that uplifts the brands and clients under our purview.”
