CIM is the world’s leading professional body for marketing and has been operating in Sri Lanka for more than 25 years, specialising in supporting people to achieve internationally recognised professional marketing qualifications.

In December 2018, CIM opened a new office in Colombo, which had business development as its primary focus. Unfortunately, the economic challenges in Sri Lanka have temporarily hampered aspirations of further growth buta doubling of regional social media followers is a clear indication that the organisation’s positioning has improved. During COVID restrictions, CIM Sri Lanka held regular webinars to ensure members were still able to connect with CIM’s Community of marketers and had access to the insight necessary to progress their careers. CIM Sri Lanka and the Maldives is headed by Onalie Dissanayake supported by staff and a team of experienced volunteers.
