Head of Projects Delivery
Confident and direct in his role as Head of Project Delivery at N*able, Janesh Pathiraja is otherwise an insightful and jovial character. He was the first member to join the company as a project manager and was invaluable in establishing N*able's project delivery arm. He has been a driving force for change within the company, introducing processes and enhancing its overall delivery capability.
A past pupil of Ananda College and a graduate from the University of Toronto in Computer Engineering, Janesh began his career as a network systems engineer at Enterprise Technologies (ETPL). Joining the post-sales implementation team as a project manager, he was soon made Head of Projects. After ten years at ETPL, a time during which he completed his post-graduate education at the University of Colombo, he moved to N*able.
Today, he is responsible for managing and delivering a wide-range of projects that the company is involved with, ranging from networking to intelligent facilities.
"I personally feel N*able has gotten a lot better over the years, the overall delivery capability has improved significantly with a lot of processes coming into place."
Speaking of N*able's strengths as a company and scope for the future, Janesh believes in the skill of its people, and its overall capacity and capability as a company.
"As a company I think we have some of the best talent in Sri Lanka, a lot of experience, people here have multiple competencies, and we as a company have multiple-competencies â?? from networking expertise, systems integration to analytics. Before joining here, I used to only think of my business unit or team, now I have learned to think of the overall business."
Moving forward he feels N*able needs to be watchful and vary when growing the business, in order for the company to reach greater heights.
"In a cricket match you need to constantly watch the ball. You can't relax when you reach a half-century. N*able is at that stage now, we must be watchful and keep our focus, if we want to get to a century."
