The owning company of Hilton Hotel Colombo yesterday announced the appointment of new directors, with well-known media and corporate personality Krishantha Cooray being appointed as its Chairman. 
Cooray has held several executive positions in several companies including the Ceylinco group, Richard Peiris group and the Maharaja Organisation.


He was instrumental in setting up Rivira Media Corporation (Pvt.) Limited under the Richard Peiris group and served there as founder Director and Chief Executive Officer. The two flagship newspapers launched under his direction, ‘Rivira’ and ‘The Nation’, continue to be widely read national newspapers in Sri Lanka.
