Sugi started his advertising career at the tender age of 19 in the last Mad Men years of Reggie Candappa at Grant McCann. Then the legendary Lilamani Benson took him under her wings at Lowe LDB, where he continued to thrive under some of the best names in the business. That some of those stalwarts are now on his staff at Magic Mango, the agency he founded with his friend in 2014, is a testament to the full circle Sugi has come in a colourful career. Today he is championing cutting edge creative for a number of Sri Lanka's local & multinational brands. He is also the President of The 4As Sri Lanka - Accredited Advertising Agencies Association.
