I studied Management at Bogazici University and after graduation, I worked at Ernst & Young as a financial advisor for 4 years. Then I worked Dogan Media Group for 3 years where I was leading financial and strategic planning for broadcasting division. During 2008-2009, I lived in France and Singapore to get my MBA degree from INSEAD Business School. Right after graduation, I spent a year at Philips as a Business Controller covering South East Europe countries.
I moved to Dublin, Ireland to work at Google EU Headquarters in 2011 where I took the role of Advertising Sales and Operations Manager covering different markets such as Turkey and Nordics. I moved back to Turkey in 2014 and joined the management team of the leading home decoration e-commerce company, Evim.net. In 2015, I took another leadership role at ReklamStore, Turkey’s leading digital advertising platform which is in high-growth stage.
I have a strong analytical background and I took many different roles in a variety of functions during my career. My experience includes sales and operations, online marketing, digital media, e-commerce, people management, business development, strategic and financial management. My main interest is increasing company value and this covers different areas such as strategy execution for sustainable growth, building effective organizations, organizational efficiency, merger & acquisitions and fundraising.
