The event was also available on all the social media platforms of Union Assurance which allowed all its customers, partners and other stakeholders to join it live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The first annual awards ceremony of this calibre was organised to give extra recognition and rewards to the outstanding contributions of the top performers of the company. Thirty-three categories of awards were given away and the top award, the ‘Champion of Champions Award’, was presented to Kalum Jayasinghe. This is the second time Jayasinghe won the title in his career at UA.
Marketing and Distribution General Manager Dharshana Amarasinghe, sharing his thoughts at the event, stated: “Union Assurance has continued its 30-year journey embracing new technology, digital initiatives and being one of the most innovative insurance companies in the industry. We as a company will continue to raise the bar for ourselves by lifting our own benchmark to be the ‘Benchmark Insurance Company’ in Sri Lanka. As a result, for the first time in the 30-year history of UA, we decided to hold the annual awards in Malaysia and go beyond borders to give a new experience for the sales force of UA. This was a first-of-its-kind experience in the insurance industry of Sri Lanka.”
