Leadership Team

Orel IT’s vision is steered by a group of high caliber leaders who command the respect of the IT industry as well as the wider business community. They have been instrumental in shaping the tech landscape in Sri Lanka with their progressive outlook while driving cross-industry innovation both at home and abroad. Below, we take a brief look at two pioneering figures in the Orel IT narrative so far.

An innovation maverick, Kushan Kodituwakku is renowned industrywide for his technological prowess and his sharp business acumen, as well as for successfully shepherding the Orel Corporation into a highly sought-after multi-vertical player both locally and internationally. In the capacity of Managing Director of Orel Corporation, of which Orel IT is a fully-owned subsidiary, he has afforded strategic direction and overseen their growth across four core verticals: electrical, industrial, lighting and information technology.

A multi-industry powerhouse today, Orel Corporation’s steady rise since its incorporation as a family business in 1989 owes much to Kushan’s pioneering spirit. The company maintains a firm presence in 6 continents presently, with continuous expansion plans underway into uncharted territory both geographically and in terms of its product, service, and technology offering.

Representing the third generation in a family of successful entrepreneurs, Kushan’s foresight paved the way for the company’s foray into a number of business domains including the highly competitive one of IT. By combining his passion for tech and its real-life application in positively impacting how people live and how organizations conduct business, he has positioned Orel IT strongly in the tech landscape both locally and globally.

A thought leader across the industry, Kushan continues to shape the IT sector with his visionary partnerships in fostering a culture of innovation and creativity countrywide. ‘Meaningful partnerships and collaboration will allow for a knowledge economy and a highly-skilled workforce, allowing for further integration of Sri Lanka with the world’, Kushan asserts.

The story of Orel IT is one that is studied industry-wide, as a successful example of structured development and parallel growth. Alongside Kushan and Orel IT’s energetic team of leaders, at the forefront of this accelerated growth narrative has been Vice President Upendra Peiris. Renowned across the sector as a bonafide IT and disruptive innovation authority, Upendra has played a significant role in ensuring that Orel IT has, and continues to, solidify our Managing Director’s vision for the company.

With the clear intent to become Sri Lanka’s leading IT solutions provider, Orel IT has grown exponentially from being a two person outfit in 2010, to becoming a cross continental operation involving 4,500-plus individuals today. With the company uniting behind a shared vision of relentless innovation, strategic thinking and fresh ideas, ideals which closely mirror Upendra’s tech outlook, Orel IT continues to establish partnerships both locally and globally in expanding its offering to meet highly specific yet diverse customer requirements.
