Corporate Stalwart Joins Touchwood PLC
March 15th 2012
Mr. Rienzie Wijethilleke, one of Sri Lanka’s most eminent corporate personalities, recently assumed office as the Chairman of Touchwood Investments PLC. Mr. Wijetilleke, FCIB (UK) FIB (Sri Lanka) CCMI (UK) served as Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Hatton National Bank Limited (HNB) for 17 years.
A strong believer in the concept of sustainable business, Mr. Wijethilleke is a proponent of corporate entities going beyond the scope of commercial returns to positively impacting the environment as well as sustainably developing the community.
In his long-standing career, Mr. Wijethilleke has espoused the need for corporates to “not only do well but also do good”. Having witnessed this sustainability spirit at Touchwood – a corporate that has made environmental stewardship and community development integral part of it’s business ethic – Mr. Wijethilleke has outlined a future strategy for Touchwood that impinges on fortifying the principles of sustainable business. Mr. Wijethilleke’s interest in sustainable business and Touchwood’s pioneering efforts in this regard, especially its efforts towards Triple Bottom-line Reporting and sustainable business practice has cemented this ‘best fit’ between a corporate legend and an enterprise that is possibly one of the most sustainable in Sri Lanka.
With strong leadership from Mr. Rienzi Wijethilleke, Touchwood is expected to witness robust growth in the medium term as strategies unfold. Mr. Wijethilleke’s strong corporate linkages and expertise will serve to strengthen Touchwood's corporate reputation and operational outlook.
