Sam Wellalage

“I consider every business I work with as if I am part of it; this mentality is passed down to every team member. This helps me and my team be accountable for our work, producing exceptional results every time. 85% of our business is repeat business, which shows the quality of our work.

I have been successful in recruitment business I setup because of the way we do business. In such a fast-moving environment, many people are focusing on short-term gains. That’s not our style. We believe in making valuable, long-lasting connection with candidates and clients. Every success reflects well on our business, so it’s a win-win situation.”
