Veteran professional and entrepreneur, Dr. Rohan Karunaratne, has been appointed as the new Chairman of Arpico Finance Company PLC (AFCP).

A civil engineer by profession, Dr. Karunaratne holds over 30 years of post-qualification experience in civil engineering, building construction, engineering consultancy, construction training, lecturing, designing and planning.


An eminent academic and professional, Dr. Karunaratne selected business administration for his post-graduation. When it was the time for a PhD, he selected both subjects. Accordingly, he has two PhDs, one in Business Administration from Sussex (UK) and Contraction Management from USA.      


Dr. Karunaratne is currently Chairman of AMF, Human Resource Development (Pvt.) Ltd, Master Builders International (Pvt.) Ltd, Hybrid Airports (Pvt.) Ltd, Overseas Training Academy, Pinthaliya Resorts and Spa, and A.K.K. Engineers (Pvt.) Ltd.

The controlling interest of the AFCP was acquired by the Alliance Finance group in 1967 from the original shareholders.
