Chevron Lubricants President Danny Roden and Vice President Lubricants Asia Pacific region Farrukh Saeed was in Sri Lanka recently.

“First visit by the global head was a significant milestone for us, all which was only possible due to the peaceful operating environment prevailing in the country and consequent growth opportunities for investors,” said Chevron Lubricants Sri-Lanka CEO Kishu Gomes.
Roden said, “I had heard what a wonderful country Sri Lanka is, and had been told what a great operation we had. My visit far exceeded my high expectations, in two days, I was able to meet all our Chevron employees and many of our customers, and even had the privilege to meet  President Mahinda Rajapaksha and interact with him for almost one and half hours during the Caltex sponsored rugby match in Colombo recently. Chevron is committed to strengthening its business in Sri Lanka, and continuing our involvement in the ongoing development of the country. I look forward to visiting again.”
Saeed said, “I was impressed with the trip to the South and our meetings with staff and customers. Our presence is visible in the country and we have a distribution network with partners that reflect our commitment to Sri Lanka. Sri-Lanka’s contribution to the Asia Pacific Lubricants operation has been progressive. I’m also pleased with the returns we have been able to deliver to our shareholders locally. We are committed to more initiatives in Sri Lanka through new products and service offerings to meet the growing needs of the growing local market and the two fast growing export markets; Bangladesh and Maldives coming under the purview of our Sri-Lankan entity.”
