Welcome message from Geoff Barnes, Baker Tilly International ceo and President
On July 29, 2015 by ADMIN
It’s an honour to be able to provide a welcome introduction on behalf of the Baker Tilly International network.
In Baker Tilly Edirisinghe & Co. we have found a firm of likeminded individuals with a commitment to excellence in service delivery standards. We are delighted to have them as our exclusive member firm representing the network in Sri Lanka.
From the conversations I’ve had with both Mr Jayasena and Mr Edirisinghe, it is clear that what has made them successful today is the high calibre of their people who advise a range of quality clients throughout Sri Lanka.
The founding partners share the same vision as all members of our network – to create a firm that serves a global market. Since its creation 30 years ago, Mr Jayasena and Mr Edirisinghe have built a firm with a strong local reputation and a clear ambitious strategy for future growth and ongoing development.
We are a network of like-minded firms from around the globe who work together to serve the interests of our clients. Baker Tilly Edirisinghe & Co. share the network’s passion for helping and sharing the success of clients.
Only the highest quality firms become part of our network. Firms are recruited based on their commitment to deliver world class services and their ability to apply exceptional technical skills. This was clearly demonstrated through our meetings with both Mr Jayasena and Mr Edirisinghe.
On behalf of Baker Tilly International, now more than 27,000 people strong, I would like to personally welcome Baker Tilly Edirinsighe & Co. to the network. I look forward to further developing the relationship with them and together, providing first-class services to clients.
