The NASCO awards, organised by the Sri Lanka Institute of Marketing (SLIM) is a premier event dedicated to recognising and honouring the efforts and performances of sales personnel.

NASCO serves as a platform which enables companies to identify their best performing sales personnel and individuals so that they may be promoted and raised to higher ranks within their career.

“JAT Holdings is proud to have been a sponsor of the NASCO 2016 awards, which epitomizes the efforts and hard work of individuals in the sales field. JAT’s commitment to the awards also highlights the fact that the company is devoted to promoting and ensuring that individuals not only get the due recognition but are also encouraged to pursue bigger career feats,” said Aelian Gunawardene, Managing Director of JAT Holdings.

JAT Holdings also bagged two awards at the NASCO 2016 awards. JAT’s star sales performer Darshana Danesha took home the Silver award under the Sales Supervisor category while Suneth Liyanage took home a Bronze in the Front-Liner category.

The awards were presented within fifteen diverse business sectors where territorial managers, sales executives / sales supervisors and front-liners were recognised under each business sector. The period under review for entries was the 31 December 2015 – 31 March 2016.

JAT goes on record as having transformed the wood coatings industry in Sri Lanka and South Asia in 2000 by introducing water-based solutions, thus creating an entirely new segment in the category which it continues to dominate with 75% market share. With 38% revenue growth and 57% net profit growth in 2015/16, the recent re-branding affirms JAT’s vision of the unprecedented opportunities which lie ahead.

The awards won by the sales team at the NASCO awards night held re-affirms the company’s commitment towards building a committed and talented sales staff.
