Employee Testimonials

” I joined GFM as a Financial Analyst. From day 1, I was inspired with the content of what we do, with the process of how we do it here and with the people. Everybody is fascinated with how the world works. But we really get to ask the toughest, most difficult questions and try to understand them from a fundamental perspective- what’s really driving the world, cause and effect. So it has been a fascinating journey. We get to do the most interesting things every day but it’s not just for intellectual engagement. We get to do it in a way that actually matters.

Guardian experience and guidance has offered me the opportunity to enhance my skills and knowledge while gaining much needed exposure in my professional career giving me confidence and ability to succeed as a professional. For me, this is my passion. I’m capitalizing my time, my knowledge and experience in a company that is investing in me. “

” I started my journey with Lion Brewery as a Management Trainee. To me, Lion is a company that provides extensive opportunity to gain experience and enable career growth. Further the company has a strong stance on believing that it’s not only about the qualifications one has but it’s about having the LION attitude to take on any hunt. In testament to this, with a background in Chemical Engineering I started my career in Brewing and Packaging but was later given an opportunity to explore Sales & Marketing, and today I am the Assistant Vice President for brand LION.

Coming from a background in engineering I was expecting the unexpected when taking on a major role as the Brand Manager for the company’s biggest brand. While my expectations were delivered, I never felt alone in this journey as the team spirit within the company is above all else. Being a closed knit community and the multiple cross functional teams and forums Lion creates, provided me with the knowledge and learnings to deliver in my role. “

I joined Equity One as a Premises Engineer in the year 1996, to look after the building facilities of the Dharmapala mawatha office complex and Vauxhall lane stores. I gradually took over to manage the building facilities of Equity Two PLC and Equity Three (PVT) Ltd and was appointed Head of Building Management Services. After completing nearly 37 years I consider Carsons as my second home and happily managing the responsibilities appointed to me.
