Long services Felicitation Ceremony 2012 - CEO speech
Mr. Thomas Daetwyler CEO said in his opening speech that ,One hundred and fourteen years ago, Mr. Alfred Baur founded this company with a vision to create a value for the future. Unlike many other companies founded at that time, the vision to create a company was not unlike the vision to create a legacy itself; a larger vision.
So what would the company be like? It wasn’t enough to create a fertilizer company. Baurs would be not only state of the art organization, but under the leadership of Mr. Alfred Baur, it would be a leading-edge facility known for exemplary, nationally recognized service to the nation.
In 2000, I was selected to be the new Managing Director of Baurs. It can only be described as a journey that would contribute to a marvelous story about discovery, passion, compassion and leading-edge organization, sometimes against all odds. It’s been a very intense trip “Back to the Future.”
As we continued to escalate our commitment to grow Baurs, the halls were filled with the echoes of decades past crying out to us. We all have proven that Baurs stands strong and rejuvenated in the Sri Lankan business environment.
Tonight is about the celebration of our proud heritage. Tonight is about the passion of the wonderful employees of Baurs and this night has been made possible by the support of those employees and a singularly, focused board that passionately embraces the continuation of a full-service, community-based organization contributing to the development of our host country and the legacy of Mr. Alfred Baur.
Tonight we are celebrating you, our marvelous employees who have contributed many years of your life for the benefit of Baurs, committed, loyal, dedicated and hard working.
I would fail in my duty if I would not mention our Honorary Chairman Mr. Thilo Hoffmann who 66 years ago set foot on the shores of this beautiful island and throughout the many years proved to be a real asset for our organization steering it through many difficult periods. Thank you Mr. Hoffmann. Thanks go also to Mr. Olivier Dunant as President of the Foundation and Mr. Ilg President of Lanka Baur Holding who have proven their commitment, support and goodwill for our company through many years.
