Sri Lanka’s premier insurer, Allianz Lanka, recently hosted this year’s iteration of its much-anticipated Allianz Annual Awards recently. The grand event unfolded through the night at the Eagles’ Lakeside Banquet and Convention Hall, Attidiya.
In attendance were the Allianz Asia Pacific Regional CEO for Property and Casualty Claudia Salem and Allianz Lanka Director and CEO Gany Subramaniam, along with Non-Executive Directors of Allianz Lanka, Dr. Ruediger Schaefer, Alan Smee and Nandana Wickramage.
This high-profile event is one that is looked forward to by all the team members of Allianz Lanka. As Allianz is globally renowned for their culture of performance, events such as these instil a feeling of oneness among all of their staff, regardless of backgrounds or positions. Through the many award categories that are up for entitlement, Allianz Lanka rewards and recognises individual success, productive partnerships and outstanding team efforts.
Allianz Lanka’s star performers were commended for their outstanding performance and commitment towards the company; the overall best performers in all four categories received the grand ‘Champion of Champions’ trophies. Whereas, the Director’s Award was presented to the back office staff who went beyond their call of duty to promote positive behaviours that supported in achieving the company’s vision, mission and values. Additionally, 11 Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) qualifiers were also recognised at this grand ceremony.
Speaking at the event, Allianz Lanka CEO Gany Subramaniam said, “Allianz Lanka stands today as a key player in Sri Lanka’s insurance industry. Looking back on the year in review, 2018 was another great year for us as we retained our position of being among the strongest insurance companies in the market. All of this was achieved thanks to the tireless efforts of our team members. Tonight is an evening dedicated just for them, as we proudly recognise and nurture their commitment to Allianz Lanka.”
