Nanayakkara explains that CDB has always espoused and delivered on its brand promise of being ‘Your Friend’. “It’s a very simple tagline but it holds immense meaning to us as our relationship with stakeholders goes beyond the norm. This is a feature that has remained ingrained in the way we do business and has been a consistent success factor, leading to numerous awards being bestowed on us for taking our relationship focus from the conventional to the exceptional. Our expansion strategy hence is very astute. Our products and services must be accessible if we are to make a difference to our stakeholders’ lives and by expanding our branch network into strategic locations, we can extend our services to a wider community.”
