...
Mr Seenivasagam Kalaiselvam is an accountant turned administrator as if to the manner born. In December 2002, he was named Director General and has since been responsible for the overall supervision of the Sri Lanka Tourism Board.
Mr Kalaiselvam's journey to tourism's top administrative office began a full 24 years ago. Armed with a degree in accountancy from the University of Jaffna, he obtained his Licentiate Certificate from The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka in 1986.
Early on, Mr Kalaiselvam was quickly attracted to the prospect of a career in the tourism industry. It came as no surprise when "Selvam", as he is known affectionately to his colleagues and close friends, tiptoed into tourism as a Research Assistant for the International Development Research Centre, Canada in January 1980. His assignment was to collect data from all tourism establishments in Sri Lanka and assist economists to prepare an input-output table to calculate tourism linkage effects - then as now a critical tool in tourism development planning.
In May 1981,Mr Kalaiselvam joined the Sri Lanka Tourist Board as a Market Intelligence Officer. Here his brief was to collect and collate tourism related market intelligence and publish a monthly report intended for use by the travel industry. This was a five-year stint, a necessary grounding in the complex world of tourism investment, visitor flows, yields and emerging trends.
In quick succession, Mr Kalaiselvam moved to manage a national resort complex in Kalkudah, in the country's North East, took charge as Assistant Director Marketing driving the Tourist Board's promotional program in the North American and Australian markets and was Accountant for the Tourism Master Plan project from January to December 1991.
Mr Kalaiselvam's next move was a case of logical progression. He was named the Tourist Board's Assistant Director Plan Implementation charged with the responsibility for coordinating with line ministries to implement the recommendations of the Tourism Master Plan 1992-2001.
...
Ever willing to share his experience in and knowledge of an industry that had become his passion, Mr Kalaiselvam devoted three years from 1994 to 1997 as Acting Senior Lecturer on Tourism at the Ceylon Hotel School and School of Tourism and held the post of Director of Planning and Development from June 1995 to December 2002.
As one of Sri Lanka's dedicated tourism executives, Mr Kalaiselvam has over the years been an active and high profile participant in scores of travel related seminars, workshops, tourism lectures, travel exhibitions and fairs in many countries including the United States, Thailand, Korea, India, Japan, Egypt, Italy and Nepal.
Scholarship being his strong suit, Mr Kalaiselvam has also earned plaudits for several reports he authored between 1985 to 1994 and which were published, notably the study on The Economic Impact of Tourism in Sri Lanka funded by the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific [ESCAP].
Today as Director General of the Sri Lanka Tourist Board, Mr Kalaiselvam brings to his job a wealth of experience and boundless energy at a time Sri Lanka's tourism offer and promise moves into high gear.
