Contribution to financial services industry :

Commercial Credit Chairman honoured

Commercial Credit Chairman Vagdevi Fernando was recently presented with an award by Sthree Mela (Voice of Sri Lankan Women) in recognition of her outstanding contribution to Sri Lanka's financial services industry.

Central Province Governor Tikiri Kobbekaduwa presents the award to Vagdevi Fernando

Central Province Governor Tikiri Kobbekaduwa presented the award to Fernando at the Kandy City Centre organised by Voice of Sri Lankan Women which is headed by Visakha Dharmadasa in Kandy. Other awardees at this event were Lalitha Dissanayake (Public Services), Jean Arasanayagam (English Literature), Pearl Stevens (Social Service), Ena de Silva (Batiks) and Chandra Ranaraja (First Woman Mayor of Kandy).

Speaking on behalf of all the awardees Fernando said she was happy and proud that women are finally being recognised for the work they do for society.

"It is very difficult for women to enter into a man's world. But now with the formation of these Associations, women could now forge ahead. This reception is proof that women are being recognised."

She thanked everyone for their participation and wished the Association `Voice of Sri Lankan Women' the very best.

Fernando has been at the helm of Commercial Credit PLC as its Chairman for the past 23 years and steered the company to greater heights during this period with her keen business acumen.

A relatively new entrant into the financial services industry, the company's rapid turnaround to become one of the most notable success stories in recent history has garnered it the trust, recognition and respect of the industry.
