Iconic luxury hotel, The Fortress, shifts into the capable hands of veteran financier Sumith Adhihetty who takes over as its new managing director. With a career spanning well over 30 years, Adhihetty is respected not just as a leading figure in the financial industry but also has extensive experience in hotel management.
Among his multi-faceted roles is his high-profile role as Managing Director of the Vallibel Group’s financial star LB Finance, where he spearheaded the company’s phenomenal rise within a short period, taking it to its current leadership position, steering the company through turbulent times in the financial sector.
Analysts expect great things to come for The Fortress under his stewardship as the tourism industry stands on the threshold of spectacular growth. “The Fortress is undeniably one of the greatest treasures of the Sri Lankan hotel industry, and the Vallibel Group is poised to take it to even greater heights,” said Adhihetty.
