100 years of banking in Sri Lanka: Commercial Bank celebrates a century of supporting the nation

The Commercial Bank of Ceylon celebrates 100 years of banking in Sri Lanka and in its citizens, and a century of indispensable support to the national economy in 2020, and has begun its centenary year with a staff gathering of unprecedented scale.

The dreams of the future and the history of the past were interwoven when more than 4,000 staff members from all over Sri Lanka came together in Colombo in early January to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Bank and its forerunners.

The staff gathering that united employees of the country’s largest private bank was the launching pad for what is to be a year of commemoration, celebration and further commitment to stakeholders and the community by an institution that has, in the course of a century, become an integral part of the economic and social fabric of Sri Lanka.

Setting the tone for the Commercial Bank’s centenary celebrations in 2020 was the launch of the Bank’s anthem, composed for the purpose and intended to serve as a motivator and a rallying call in the century ahead, and presentations by the Bank’s Managing Director S. Renganathan and Chief Operating Officer Sanath Manatunge.
