CDB’S busi­ness ex­cel­lence rec­og­nized at NBE Awards 2017

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - NEWS -

Cit­i­zens De­vel­op­ment Busi­ness Fi­nance PLC (CDB) won a Gold Award in the NBFI sec­tor for the se­cond con­sec­u­tive year and a Merit for Ex­cel­lence in Per­for­mance Man­age­ment at the re­cently con­cluded Na­tional Busi­ness Ex­cel­lence Awards 2017.

The Awards, or­gan­ised an­nu­ally by the Na­tional Cham­ber of Com­merce is now in its 14th year and had as its Chief Guest the Cana­dian High Com­mis­sioner David Mckin­non.

“Be­ing recog­nised by an awards scheme that is to­day known as the sym­bol of ex­cel­lence for the ‘best of the best’ busi­ness in Sri Lanka is truly an hon­our for CDB,” says MD/CEO Ma­hesh Nanayakkara, ex­plain­ing the sym­bol­ism of the tro­phy de­pict­ing a lo­tus in bloom.

“This award il­lus­trates how we at CDB sur­mounted im­mense chal­lenges to climb to the zenith and be recog­nised for our achieve­ments, just as the lo­tus rises tall and strong from the depths of the water.”

Over 100 awards were pre­sented across 29 busi­ness sec­tors and were eval­u­ated on unique sev­en­pronged cri­te­ria by a dis­tin­guished panel of judges.

“Our busi­ness mis­sion and val­ues are to­tally stake­holder driven and this I be­lieve is our for­mula for suc­cess,” ex­plains Nanayakkara of the multi-award win­ning en­tity he spear­heads. “The fact that the Cey­lon Cham­ber of Com­merce, Sri Lanka In­sti­tute of Mar­ket­ing, Brand Fi­nance and Sri Lanka In­sti­tute of Train­ing and De­vel­op­ment among many, have all re­peat­edly recog­nised CDB for its achieve­ments speaks for the bench­marks we set in busi­ness ex­cel­lence. We have an un­re­lent­ing fo­cus on in­no­va­tion and have in­fused tech­nol­ogy into this equa­tion to avail our cus­tomers of pi­o­neer­ing prod­ucts and ser­vices. Our highly mo­ti­vated team is con­stantly rais­ing the bar in all facets of our busi­ness, which also in­clude so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity, en­vi­ron­men­tal con­scious­ness and com­pli­ance. Each of our stake­hold­ers takes own­er­ship of our pur­pose to en­rich peo­ple’s lives through the ex­ten­sion of fi­nan­cial ser­vices, which I be­lieve will ul­ti­mately lead us to achieve our vi­sion of be­com­ing a fi­nan­cial pow­er­house.”
