Serendib Flour Mills, the manufacturers of high quality seven-star wheat flour in Sri Lanka, took home three awards – two Golds and one Bronze – at the recently-concluded National Sales Congress (NASCO) 2019 organised by the Sri Lanka Institute of Marketing (SLIM).

The two Gold awards were won by Area Manager Central/East Region Ajith Thanthrige in the category ‘Corporate Sales: Territory Manager’ and Technical Sales Executive Indika Thushara Wijesinghe in the category ‘Corporate Sales: Support Services’. The Bronze award was won by Sales Executive Negombo K.H.C. Sanjeewa in the ‘Corporate Sales: Sales Executive’ category.

With over 12 years of experience at Serendib Flour Mills, Ajith Thanthrige has extensive experience serving in areas including Kandy, Matale, Polonnaruwa, Ampara, Dehiattakandiya and Mahiyanganaya. Indika Thushara Wijesinghe’s background in the food industry spans over 10 years where he has worked as a Sales Representative, Area Sales Supervisor and Bakery Demonstrator. 

At the company’s fifth Annual Sales Conference held earlier this year Indika bagged the ‘7-Star Technical Executive of the Year 2018’ award. K.H.C. Sanjeewa has been part of Serendib Flour Mills since 2007 covering Wattala, Negombo and Divulapitiya. He was the winner of the coveted ‘7-Star B2B Sales Executive of the Year’ Award at the fifth Annual Sales Conference.

The Sri Lanka Institute of Marketing (SLIM), the national body for marketing in Sri Lanka, has been promoting marketing excellence and elevating the status of marketing since 1970. Since its inception, the SLIM NASCO awards program has rapidly become the premier event for Sri Lanka’s sales fraternity to recognise sales personnel among a diverse range of industries under their various job scopes. An eminent panel of judges selects the best sales performers in the country by prudently screening all entries.

Commenting on the wins, Serendib Head of Marketing and Communications Kalinga Wijesekera stated: “We are thrilled to have three of our sales team members win awards at SLIM NASCO 2019 by outshining individuals from numerous other corporate entities in the country. All sales professionals in the country eagerly await SLIM NASCO as they get the chance to battle each other to win prestigious awards. 

“Winners are catapulted to the national platform, which benefits both their careers and the human capital profile of the company they represent. Last year was the first time we won two awards at SLIM NASCO and this year we have progressed further by bringing home two Golds and a Bronze. This clearly shows that our sales personnel have raised their game having demonstrated hard work, dedication, passion and professionalism.”
