Brandix dedicates its Head Office to Deshamanya Ken Balendra

Deshamanya Ken Balendra unveils a commemorative plaque at the dedication of the Brandix Head Office in his name

The Brandix Group has paid tribute to an inspirational trailblazer by naming its Head Office at Rheinland Place, Colombo 3, after the legendary business leader Ken Balendra, the Group’s first Chairman, at a simple ceremony held on Monday, 28th November 2016.

Commissioned in April 2015, the seven-storey building will henceforth be known as the ‘Ken Balendra Building’ in recognition of the leadership role Mr Balendra played in the evolution and growth of Brandix into Sri Lanka’s top ranked exporter.

“The power of inspiration is central to our credo and has defined and propelled the business for many years,” Brandix Group CEO Ashroff Omar said. “Ken Balendra exemplified this during his 10-year term as our Chairman.”

During his decade of leadership at Brandix, Mr. Balendra was instrumental in the adoption by the company of the corporate and reporting structures and the values of a public listed company, and establishing a high degree of transparency. He also provided visionary leadership for the expansion and aggressive growth of the company.

Brandix also credits Mr Balendra with instilling the best practices of boardroom governance, board discipline and direction with precise delegation, building team spirit, enhancing decision-making capabilities and advocating benchmarking with leading conglomerates.

Brandix’s Head Office is the first commercial building in Sri Lanka to be awarded the Green Mark – Platinum certification by the Ceylon Institute of Builders (CIOB), a certification developed by the Building Construction Authority (BCA) of Singapore to assess Green buildings.
