Role of the Managing Director

The Chairman of Sripalie Contractors presides over the Board of Directors and the business execution of the Company is headed by a Finance & Administration Director. This creates a system under which the Chairman is responsible for overall company vision, business strategy and decision-making whilst he oversees overall business execution through the Finance & Administration Director. The Managing Director needs to be more abreast of the details within the business in a more ‘hands on’ role. However, due to the availability of a very strong Board of Directors and Management Team at Sripalie to manage each aspect of these operations (Finance, Administration, Development, Design & Quality Assurance and Operations etc.), the role of our Managing Director is limited to overseeing & reviewing their performance.

The Management Team

“The management team of Sripalie Contractors (Pvt) Ltd is responsible to carry on & streamline the company’s processes.
