During a career spanning many decades, Mr. Dominic Lawrence Joseph Seneviratne served top corporates in Sri Lanka, including Shaw Wallace & Hedges Limited, Ceylon Tobacco Limited, Hentley Garments Limited, Janatha Estate Development Board, and Tristar Apparels Limited. His exceptional performance also earned him an Executive Consultant position at the Asian Development Bank and a World Bank-funded accounting development project at the National Water Supply & Drainage Board. In 1994, he was offered the post of Director of Practical Training at CA Sri Lanka, where he took steps to increase the number of approved training institutions while ensuring regular inspections of the training firms, leading to higher standards of training for aspiring Chartered Accountants.  Mr. Seneviratne made vast contributions towards enhancing professional standards and also served the Council of CA Sri Lanka in 1984 and 1985, apart from chairing the Public Sector Accounting and Auditing Committee.
