Fonterra Brands Lanka HR Business Partner Thilanka Jayathilake became the winner at Fonterra Infinity Awards 2018 recently to recognise inspiring and emerging leaders, among 30 top performing people and teams.

The Fonterra Inspiring Leader Award honours an outstanding senior member of the team who has inspired colleagues to grow and demonstrated leadership traits, while keeping Fonterra values at the core.

“Thilanka has inspired mindset change and built capabilities within the sales function, one of our largest teams, to help it undergo a complete transformation,” said Jayamanne.

Thilanka will go to India next month to help establish the team in Fonterra’s newly set up JV business - ‘Fonterra Future Dairy’ - as its Head of HR.

The Co-operative presented the 2018 Fonterra Emerging Leader Award to Brand Manager Shehani Liyanage.

Shehani was responsible for launching key innovations for the business, rallying her team members across functions and showing all the signs of a Fonterra leader in the making. She ensured that the innovations lived up to their promise of delivering high-quality dairy nutrition for consumers by managing rigorous product testing to meet tough deadlines. More than 30 awards were presented to top performers and business partners.

Fonterra Brands Sri Lanka Human Resources Director, Dinusha Jayamanne said, “This year, we have made multiple strides by building new capabilities that will help us become a future-ready organisation, able to take on the macroeconomic challenges of tomorrow. We’ve been recognised as a global talent hub. The Fonterra Infinity Awards are the annual appreciation of our teams’ hard work throughout the year and a chance for us to celebrate their extraordinary achievements.”
