Shankar Dharmaratne, Chief Manager, Dialog Axiata P.L.C

Shankar Dharmaratne is the Chief Manager – New Business Development at Dialog Axiata PLC., a subsidiary of Axiata Group Berhad (Axiata), which operates Sri Lanka’s largest and fastest growing mobile telecommunications network. The Company is also one of the largest listed companies on the Colombo Stock Exchange in terms of market capitalisation.

One of the primary functions of Shankar in this role is ensuring the introduction of new technology and cutting edge solutions to the Dialog customer base which, in turn, places the organization firmly as the forerunner in the value added service space.

Having successfully deployed the Near Field Communication (NFC) application amongst the top corporate entities in Sri Lanka, the focus now is shifting towards government institutes that could adopt NFC for applications such as public transport & tourism.
Shankar was an integral part of developing the first mobile payment interface for their customers as early as 2006.
