Business Profile

My mission is to lead Data-driven Analytics initiatives to generate business value.

Meanwhile, I have provided AI Governance Advisory for since 2023 summer.

Between 2007 and 2017, I worked as a Co-Founder, responsible for IT Solution Delivery in philogica – a major data consultancy company covering the EMEA region by delivering leading-edge data engineering solutions.

I worked in the philogica London Office between 2009 and 2012 and was responsible for setting up and leading an operation in England within Think London business incubation center.

I volunteered for DAMA Turkey Chapter (Data Management International) as Founding Vice President to promote data literacy in the local industry. I was also a professional instructor at the Banks Association of Turkey between 2009 and 2018.

I began my career at MasterCard (Provus) in 1998 as a Data Engineer and worked in different roles, from Business Analysis to Project and Program Management in the Financial sector.

For me, work-life balance is easy: I am 100% focused on the job when I am working. When I am not working, my priorities are my family, healthy eating, and exercise.

I am fascinated with stock investment and human psychology. My expertise with data gives me a unique perspective. The stock market represents the psychology of the entire world at any given moment; data is a thumbprint of that moment. That helps me understand what the world is thinking and what it will do next.
