Jetwing Hotels | Our Story

Shiromal Cooray - Managing Director, Jetwing Travels
"…he wanted me to become a doctor, but I was not cut out for the medical profession and chose to become an accountant instead. However, he always encouraged us to do our best at whatever path we decided to take - and he continued to be my inspiration and my guiding light when I eventually returned to the fold, to become a part of Jetwing…" Charmingly unpretentious and refreshingly down to earth, Shiromal is every inch her father's daughter - as those who knew Herbert Cooray, the founder of Jetwing will warmly reiterate. Defying expectations, and ever independent of spirit, Shiromal desired to stay away from the then established family business in the leisure industry and joined the fast paced arena of advertising - as an accountant at JWT, one of the leading ad agencies in Sri Lanka. It was a vibrant and exciting world and she thrived in it handling both accounts and media, rising quickly to become the Finance Director. Although her father did not quite wish her to be caught up in the world of business - as he felt it was not a suitable environment for a female to engage in, he was willing to rethink his somewhat conventional and protective stance and give her all the support she needed to spread her wings. And, when Hong Kong beckoned with broader career prospects, Shiromal took up the opportunity to do so. Always her quiet source of strength "…my father never insisted or pushed us to do anything we did not want to do, but he was naturally happy when I returned to help the travel arm of the Jetwing business, we reinvented Jetwing Travels as a separate business entity…" Having full faith in her abilities, he gave Shiromal complete autonomy to steer and grow the business and explore its potential. "He gave his opinion, but he gave us, his kids, the choice to make our own decisions. He allowed us to be who we were. He encouraged us to excel - but in an environment of freedom" She reminisces. Every aspect of her life, Shiromal says, was inspired by her father. A simple person who never sought luxury, he was completely down to earth and influenced his children - and indeed all around him, by example. "…he taught us that all human beings are equal, to respect everyone, he also instilled in us the value of education, how important it was - that education, was for life…" Treasuring her times with him - as her Chairman, and her father she is grateful to him for inculcating an attitude of positivity in her outlook, the ability to be self-motivated, and be strong - the maxim 'whatever happens, life goes on' being words to live by. Proud of the success the business has achieved today, Shiromal is highly conscientious of her role at the helm of Jetwing Travels, and is determined not to rest on her laurels.
