The crème de la crème among Ceylinco Life’s top sales professionals were recently felicitated with accolades and an automobile at a scintillating annual awards ceremony that also coincided with the celebration of Company’s 18th consecutive year of market leadership.
Themed ‘Breakthrough to Excellence,’ the event which was held at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH), honoured over 300 sales and non-sales staff with more than 500 ‘performance awards’. The theme was chosen to emphasise the skill, effort and drive of the Ceylinco Life sales force which has created the momentum to position the Company as the market leader once again, the Company sources said.
One of the highlights of the event was the presentation of a company-maintained Hybrid Sedan Car to T. Shopana of the Nelliady Branch for her excellence in qualifying for the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) award and High Flyer award which recognises exceptional sales force members in areas such as new business, persistency, and premium collection. Ceylinco Life has been rewarding its high achievers with automobiles since 2018; the first to do so in the local life insurance market.
Among others honoured were 161 members of the Ceylinco Life sales team who qualified in 2021 for MDRT, the premier association of financial professionals. The Company’s Chairman R. Renganathan graced the occasion as Chief Guest.
The top award winners at this year’s annual awards were: Overall Best Regional Sales Manager S. Venukaran; Overall Best Branch Head V. Baskaran, Nelliady branch; Overall Best Unit Head R. P. Edirisinghe, Nugegoda branch; and Overall Best Sales Consultant A. I. P. Manjula, Ambalantota branch.
Staff members, sales consultants, unit heads and branch heads from the Ceylinco Life head office and more than 270 branches were recognised for their contribution to the company’s performance in 2021, with many top performers winning multiple awards.
