Senake Amerasinghe has been appointed Chairman/Managing Director with Anil Wijesinghe as Deputy Chairman and Yasendra Amerasinghe as Director/Chief Executive Officer. “These changes have rejuvenated one of Sri Lanka’s oldest automobile importers, giving its current and future customers the confidence of that Carmart is now empowered to give them the very best in service quality,” the company said.

He currently serves on the Executive Committee of the Sri Lanka France Business Council, the Sri Lanka German Business Council and the National Chamber of Commerce.

After spending 15 yrs in Australia and the United States, and obtaining his engineering degree from the prestigious University of Southern California,Yasendra Amerasinghe returned to Sri Lanka to apply his qualifications, global knowledge and professional corporate culture to the family business.
He is the operational head of the company and is at the forefront of its restructuring strategy.

“The company has also improved its workshop facilities, installing groundbreaking new diagnostic software that enables diagnostics to be carried out from remote locations, meaning that Peugeot engineers from the principal’s technical platform can help give Peugeot owners the best solutions.
