The annual National Sales Awards recognise and reward performance and competencies of sales professionals, pushing them to scale heights while continually raising the bar in leadership, professionalism, values, ethics, responsibility and best practices in sales excellence. The objective is for the awards to be a catalyst in ensuring sales professionals are on par with international standards.
Director Sales and Business Development CDB Sasindra Munasinghe congratulated the winners saying, “You have proven that CDB is well on our way to building a world-class sales force because you thrive on challenges, exploit opportunities, think beyond the norm and keep pushing that bar of excellence. At CDB we have striven to establish performance standards that are not just constructed on the building blocks of excellence, it also encourages and motivates you to take advantage of our pioneering spirit and entrepreneurial mindset.”
He added that CDB has always developed its team based on a foundation of individuality but also, on a collective company vision that is a win-win formula for both. “Being recognised nationally means CDB has nurtured a winning team – a team that bring extraordinary results through ordinary people – given that our team members compete with the best of the best sales professionals across industries.”
Team CDB has won continuously at the National Sales Awards and this year, had to compete with a collective of applicants who were of very high quality and set a competitive benchmark in the Financial Services, Banking, Insurance & FMCG sectors. The competition was intense with the quality of the applicants being extremely high, all proven to be master leaders in their field. For CDB therefore, winning a large haul of awards at the prestigious National Sales Awards is doubly significant – it is undeniably a winning team but it is also a Company that believes in nurturing its sales team to be the best of themselves, taking responsibility for their actions and pushing the standards of sales excellence upwards.
