Jag’s love of numbers has been essential – not only as a keen follower of the Sri Lankan cricket team – but as Incodia’s Finance Director!

As well as keeping track of ‘The Lions’ runs and wickets, Jag has been critical in establishing and maintaining Incodia’s financial stability and growth for more than 15 years.

Jag has created a solid foundation for Incodia, from providing strategic and financial guidance, to ensuring all our financial commitments are met.

He joined us in 2006 having worked for two of the ‘Big Four’ accountancy firms – KPMG and Ernst & Young – and having also worked in Sri Lanka, Jamaica and the Bahamas before settling in the UK.

“I have a privileged view of everything we do as a business, both ensuring we are sustainable and profitable and making sure we have the resources to innovate and add new capabilities and capacity for our clients.”

As well as a key role in the company’s direction, Jag is responsible for producing and filing our statutory accounts, monthly management accounts, profitability and cash flow forecasting, budgeting, managing cash flows, capital project evaluations and leading our close-knit finance team.

Finance and numbers are clearly a passion for Jag, so much so that he even gained an MBA in Accounting & Finance from Manchester Business School in 2006.

“Even after over 15 years with Incodia, my role is continuously evolving, particularly dealing with an unprecedented event like the pandemic. By keeping our finances in excellent health and providing accurate information on time, my team and I can help our colleagues continually enhance what we deliver for the brands, retailers and print partners we support.”

As mentioned, outside of work Jag is a big fan of the Sri Lankan national cricket team – something which ignites passions, particularly when they take on England!

And at home, Jag is also an equally enthusiastic chef, whipping up his famous ‘De-Alwis’ Sri Lankan curry for his family and friends.
