Lakshman Hulugalle is a person of immense experience in the public and private sectors. He is an administrator and diplomat with a proven track record. His portfolios have been diverse and varied, but his commitment and positive approach are always constant.

Result-oriented and hardworking, he recognises that trust, loyalty, and responsibility in everything

that one does will always result in success. Hulugalle has been a part of the significant achievements that the country has accomplished over the past 30 years. Hailing from the Wayamba region and from a respectable family, he attended the best schools in the Kurunegala district. His family background, education and value oriented upbringing enabled him to work hard with determination and this saw him rise in his career to work at the highest levels of State in Sri Lanka.

The Accelerated Mahaweli Development Program is one of the most significant development projects that the country has ever witnessed. The project was spearheaded by the then Minister of Mahaweli Development, Gamini Dissanayake. The Mahaweli Development Program was initially planned to be completed over 30 years; however, the implementation of the project was accelerated and was completed in seven years.

Hulugalle was at this time (1979-1989) the Coordinating Secretary to Gamini Dissanayake, Minister of Land and Land Development and Mahaweli Development.

The experience and knowledge garnered through this time have been pivotal for the various roles that he has held over the years.
