George Steuart & Co. Ltd. (GS&Co), Sri Lanka’s oldest company established in 1835, has revamped the Board of Directors.

Sarva Ameresekere has been appointed the Group Chairman and the Board has been strengthened with the addition of three independent directors, Devaka Cooray, Dimantha Seneviratne, and Dr. Dinesh Palipana, who joined the company in the recent past.

Devaka Cooray is a finance and assurance expert with a distinguished career at Ernst & Young, while veteran banker Dimantha Seneviratne recently retired as CEO of NDB Bank. Dr. Dinesh Palipana OAM is a doctor, lawyer, researcher, senior lecturer in medicine and an equality advocate based in Australia.

Sarva’s appointment comes as Dilith Jayaweera resigned from the Group Chairmanship and all directorates he held within the Group in January, as Jayaweera’s entrepreneurial journey shifts focus to creating a national level political impact.
