The son of the Founder, Director of Green Goddess (Private) Limited, Thilanke Senaratne is the force in the forefront that drives the business today. Horticulture naturally runs in his blood with members of his family having been involved in agriculture related projects right along. Thilanke Senaratne started his career at Green Goddess in 1995 under the guidance of his father. Being someone who loves challenges he initiated his first consignment of flowers to Kuwait when he was just 18 years old and that too in the absence f his father. This young entrepreneur’s success story of having transformed Green Goddess from its modest beginnings as a small time enterprise to one of Sri Lanka’s leading exporters, within a short period of just 10 years is truly remarkable. A lot of sweat, tears and courage along with life’s lessons learnt have resulted in this phenomenal achievement.
Today the organization has maintained growth and profitability, while enhancing its uniqueness and advantages. He strongly believes in the phrase ‘never compromise on quality’ and puts this into practice even under the most trying situations.
Being young, enthusiastic, forward thinking and full of new ideas, he has been the key player in taking the business to where it is today. He leads his team with inspiration and dedication and sometimes even courageously changes the convention rules of business to suite modern day business demands.
