Mr. Vijitha Bandara
Chief Operating Officer - TATA
The TATA division doesn’t just sell vehicles. We sell dreams that transform people’s lives. I believe this as much today as when I first joined DIMO. Strong values have always been at the root of my character. I am delighted to work for a Company that matched mine perfectly. The constant challenges have always inspired me. I always had a voice to drive the business forward and I was encouraged to reach beyond the norm. If you are above all else, ethical, qualified and passionate….I urge you to join and make DIMO your second home.
Ms. Rochelle Vandort
Assistant Manager - Learning & Development
After graduating, I joined DIMO with the hope of laying a solid foundation for my career. I have to say that the Company has exceeded my expectations. I receive excellent opportunities to train and develop myself primarily because of our constant exposure to the best practices in the industry. The management is very supportive and keeps me engaged by allowing me to be creative in my work. Theodore Roosevelt said ‘Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing’. For me, I have received this chance at DIMO.
Mr. T. S. Chandrarathne Perera
I joined DIMO as an apprentice in 1975. Throughout my career I have been happy because of the pleasant work environment at DIMO. The company provides many facilities to make our job easy. I feel empowered because I have been given the responsibility to take important work related decisions independently. Our creativity is encouraged by the management who always gives us their full support. Everyone at DIMO works in unity and harmony. It’s the secret to the company’s success.
Mr. Channa Weerawardane
On recalling my 20 year career at DIMO, I can’t help but smile. From the very beginning, the management recognized that I had the key ‘ingredients’ to lead the TATA Commercial vehicle division. They provided me with the freedom to drive the business forward. The confidence they placed in me was my motivator. It allowed me to deliver exceptional results which boosted the revenue of the division. Thereafter, within a relatively short period of time, I was appointed as a Director. If you have the hunger to perform, DIMO is for you.
Mr. Uditha Lasantha Rupasena
Executive Technician – Mechanical
I joined DIMO just after I graduated as top of the batch from the DIMO Automobile Training School. I joined the Mercedes Benz Passenger car workshop and now I work as an Executive Technician. To me, DIMO is like a university because I am exposed to a wealth of knowledge and have the opportunity to work with the best technology. In addition, I get to go overseas for training which keeps me at the forefront of the industry. I am proud to be a member of the DIMO Tribe.
Mr. Prabodha Shawn Silva
Head of Business Development & Stakeholder Relations
The DIMO Management Trainee Programme of 2007 was considered by many to be the “holy grail” for fresh graduates. Since my appointment by the Chairman himself in my role, I have found my true calling. The most challenging part of my job is juggling multiple responsibilities. However, the challenges make the work all the more gratifying which keeps me motivated. The best part of my job is interacting with so members of the DIMO Tribe from our various business divisions. DIMO has truly become my home away from home.
Mr. Sahinda Wasalathanthrige
Assistant Service Advisor
From my days as a child, I was fascinated by automobiles. So naturally I chose the path of Mechanical Engineering for my higher education. Just before my graduation, I was looking for employment opportunities and DIMO was at the top of my list because of the legendary Mercedes-Benz brand. I requested for an opportunity to join and they accepted with open arms. They offered me the post of Assistant Service Advisor for Mercedes-Benz. Being a part of DIMO’s is so exciting, enjoyable and I’m constantly being recognized.
Mr. Anas Mohammed
Business Unit Manager
I joined DIMO as a Sales Executive in 2002 to represent the MRF brand in the North Central area. My role was subsequently expanded to serve customers in many other areas island-wide. With dedication and commitment, I took up new responsibilities after being promoted to Business Unit Manager. Continuous encouragement from the management and the training support from HR have enabled me to take on the challenge of my new role with confidence. I can assure that anyone with passion and dedication can develop their career at DIMO.
Ms. Uda Piyumi Perera
At DIMO I am exposed to some of the best HR practices in the industry. I learn something new every day! What I like most about working at DIMO is the organizational culture. The management team is open and you can get their help in any occasion. The employees are friendly making it so easy for us to work with them. I am glad that I have received this opportunity to be involved in many employee welfare activities. Working with them is truly enjoyable and rewarding.
