In Brief : A Territory & Dealer Management Career

Being majored in Economics, in Middle East Technical University ( ODTÜ - Ankara, Turkey), in 2003, I have been working as a Territory Manager in Agricultural Machinery Business. During my career, I had the chance of exploring almost all over the country, not only with its geography but also with the manner of local business, trade patterns, and social structure. Recently, I was responsible for building a 3S (sales-services and spare parts) network in North Marmara , achieving  sales goals for agricultural machinery, and competing with a wide range of firms trading in tractors and combine business in Turkey. My career path, therefore, made me competent in managing a territory business and a network of different culture and social levels with different business patterns under the hard conditions of high competition.

I had M.s degree in Business Administration from Maltepe University in 2008 with deeper studies in Customer Relationship Management (CRM) issues, especially in Customer Profiling and Knowledge Management.

Considering the high technology environment of today’s business, I had been included in different corporate projects of the firms that I had been working for, such as SAP Sales and CRM module conceptual design , E-Map applications for further market analyze and E-Business development for sales in agricultural machinery. I am accurate in utilization of Office software and presentation skills.

I have advanced comprehension and communication skills in English and French while Turkish is my mother tongue.

Having an analytical thinking, hard-working, target-oriented and sincere personality, I believe that I have enough enthusiasm for sales business and team work. 

Interests, Hobbies and Personal Studies


I always try to be up-to-date about global trends and conjuncture. Therefore, my main hobby is keeping tracks of world politics, economics, popular trends and technological innovations from different medias such as journals, newsletters, magazines, videos and etc. I want to collect all my tracks in a personal history folder in the future.


I have a collection of souvenir pieces, pins, handworks, local arts from my local and abroad travels.

Another desire is collecting books and enriching my personal library


Travel is a combination of my personal joys and professional needs. I had chance of traveling almost all around Turkey, till the farest villages, and many European Cities.

My interest is boutique-style traveling,discovering local cuisines, escape-points with natural beauty and historical places.

I plan to publish my travel experiences in my blog; My Travel Design.

Internet Technologies

As everyone, I like chatting, networking, and sharing media with my contacts. But, moreover, I want to add a value on this hobby so I am currently studying on web design and e-business

Not only technology but also customized services, mobile technologies, Web2 applications are in my interests since I like to follow popular trends, and consumption behaviours

Foreign Languages

I love learning new languages. I want to learn Italian after that..



History is my main interest area.

  • Ancient times with esp. sacred texts of Middle East civilizations
  • Medieval European History, esp. XIV.Louis era
  • History of Turks, from Middle Asia to modern republican times.
  • For last two years I make studies about post World War I era, Middle East History.


Surrealist French Literature, esp poetry is my second main interest area.

I am writing poems and essays


World music, esp. gitanesque Balkan music

I am also a good listener of pop and rock

My Career Objective

Short Term;

  • I would like to transform my experience in territory sales management, dealer development and customer relations into a mid-management role in sales and marketing area of a multinational firm especially acting in automotive, agricultural machinery, heavy truck or other equipment sectors.
  • My countrywide field sales experience and business network allows me to present a strong commitment of success for any agricultural machinery firms aiming to invest in Turkey.
  • I am also open to international opportunities that I trust in my capabilities to carry the responsibility of neighbour countries of Turkey.

Long Term;

  • Depending on my strong education background, experience in sales and territory management, deeper studies that I conducted in Customer Relationships Management, and wide ranged personal interests in global economic,trade, technological and consumption trends, I target to achieve a top management role in sales and marketing of a multinational in 15 years time.
