The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) Sri Lanka Region felicitated eight senior tutors, Bertram Paul, Prasanna Perera, G.S. Sylvester, Failan Saleem, Rohantha Athukorala, Michael Ranasinghe, Mohamed Adamaly and Ravi Jayawardena at a recent ceremony in recognition of their noble contribution towards Sri Lanka’s marketing profession and for assisting numerous students and professional marketers to develop their marketing knowledge and skills.

The felicitation ceremony was a highlight of the Centenary Dinner, which was held to mark CIM celebrating 100 years of marketing excellence and commitment.

Tutors who had completed 15 years of dedicated service and made an outstanding contribution to develop the professional marketing fraternity in Sri Lanka were recognised and honoured at the felicitation.

British High Commissioner to Sri Lanka John Rankin graced the occasion as Chief Guest while the Chartered Institute of Marketing (UK) Chairman Chris Lenton was the Guest of Honour.

The memorable evening honoured the long serving tutors for their teaching excellence which has produced many CIM World Prize winners and Sri Lanka Prize winners, and for making an extraordinary contribution towards the professional development of many Sri Lankans who are today steering several local and international organisations towards success and growth.

Chairperson, CIM Sri Lanka Branch Chithrangani Herat Guneratne addressing the gathering stated: “Very few professional associations are able to produce world prize winners and award-winning students.  This continuous success in producing outstanding marketers and receiving such recognition and awards are the results of the effort and commitment of our tutors. Their dedication and support extended over the years have produced several professional marketers in Sri Lanka.”
