August 01, 2011, Colombo, At the recently held Airtel Achiever’s Club award ceremony in Singapore, Airtel Lanka emerged champions, clinching the much coveted Award for best operating unit in South Asia for 2010/11. The Airtel Achievers’ Club is an annual contest in which all Airtel business units in South Asia compete on excellence in business deliverables to vie for the Airtel Achievers Club Award.
With this, Airtel Lanka becomes Bharti Airtel’s No.01 Sales and Marketing Team in South Asia.
Vineet Taneja, Operations Director, South India and Sri Lanka said, “For Sri Lanka to have emerged victorious from all circles and country operations across Airtel in South Asia comes as no surprise to us, given the overwhelming response the brand has received from Sri Lankan customers since launch of services, and given the company’s commitment to make Airtel available at every touchpoint throughout Sri Lanka. The recognition received for both fastest growing and fastest expanding network service provider in the history of Sri Lanka, stems from the dynamism embodied by all Airtel team members, which in turn, has translated into Sri Lanka’s achievement of the award for best operating unit in 2010/11. I congratulate the Airtel Lanka team for winning the hearts of Sri Lankans in record time, by taking them closer to what they truly love.”
The Airtel Achiever’s Club recognizes top performing units from across Airtel’s 23 business circles in India as well as Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Governed by revenue generation based on topline delivery, Sales led achievement and performance in Value Added Services, among other determinant variables that make up the award, the top Sales & Marketing teams are selected from across the company’s business units comprising Mobile, Broadband, Digital TV and Fixed line operations.
Since its launch in early 2009, Airtel has accrued a number of accolades for itself in Sri Lanka. This recognition is one among them, and will no doubt pave the way for greater achievements in service delivery, through business excellence.
