Throughout my professional career, I have improved my theoretical knowledge and practical skills in many areas. My auditing background provided me with experience in reporting, analytical thinking and essential auditing skills. I have gained experience in budgeting, finance (which also include handling the funding of group companies), project finance, management reporting and corporate macro approach skills during my time in the group holding company. Finally, I have developed detailed operational experience within my current job responsibilities

My previous assignments and achievements include; accounting and auditing, financial reporting based both on local regulations and IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards), preparing reporting packages to international companies, consolidation, strategic planning, budgeting and budget reporting, MIS reporting, operational and corporate finance, cost accounting, tax planning, internal control applications, running workshops for privatizations and due-dilligences, implementing ERP projects, etc…

I am currently employed as the CFO of two marketing companies. These companies are increasingly focused on real estate construction and marketing. One of them is listed on the Istanbul Stock Exchange, and is currently pursuing a real-estate project consisting of 1,000 apartment units. The other company has reached the final stage of an USD120m worth project, consisting of commercial and residential units.
