Chrishani Kotalawela
Chief Operating Officer
"When there's only one person left standing, let it be you." No motto sums-up this tenacious COO more aptly than this. Chrishani stumbled into Advertising quite by chance, having worked in Sales and Hospitality. Joining Leo Burnett as a coordinator in its Retail Division, this cosmopolitan professional flew up the proverbial ladder, having proven her prowess.

Seven years on, Chrishy handles some of the country's most recognized brands including Cargill's, Odel, Mobitel, CIMA, and Hilton. Her strong ties with the Company's international network further strengthen her product offerings. Some of the notable financial accounts which she has captained are DFCC, NDB, and Bank of Ceylon.

A heady cocktail of restlessness, willingness and stubbornness has earned Chrishy success for the Agency both in the local and international arena. And the good news is, there's plenty more success to come.

History: Ceylinco Insurance, Mount Lavinia Hotel (Sri Lanka), Yoland Alluvihare Designer Wear (Japan).
