The Commercial Bank of Ceylon felicitated 136 of its staff members in recognition of 25 years of loyal service at the bank’s annual Seniority Awards ceremony for 2017.

The ceremony themed ‘Celebrating 25 years of shared prosperity and achievement’ was attended by Commercial Bank Chairman Dharma Dheerasinghe, the bank’s Managing Director/CEO Jegan Durairatnam, several members of the Board of Directors and the Deputy General Manager Human Resources Management Isuru Tillakawardana, who jointly presented awards and gold coins to the honoured employees for their long service.

Members of the families of felicitated staff were invited to the celebrations that followed the ceremony.
