Mr. Anil Wijesinghe was appointed as the Managing Director / CEO of United Motors Lanka Limited in January 2001, when I was the Chairman of that Company. During his tenure of office he was able to transform the culture of United Motors Lanka Limited to a vibrant private sector company. He gave leadership to a young management team to produce excellent results in marketing effectively the complete range of Mitsubishi vehicles in the Sri Lankan market.

During his period of office, the Company won several awards including the “Best Annual Report Award” in its category, from the Institute of Chartered Accounts of Sri Lanka and a special Award from Mitsubishi Japan for being No.l in Sri Lanka in terms of market share in the Brand New Imported Motor Vehicles Sector.

As a very active and an effective Managing Director, he led the Company to achieve a pre­eminent position in the Brand New Motor Car Importing & Marketing Sector in Sri Lanka.
