Business Technologist | Data Coach | Data Governance Leader | Data Strategy Advisor
My mission is to lead Data-driven IT initiatives to generate business value.
Since moving to Amsterdam in 2017, I have provided IT Professional Services for the Bank of Tokyo (MUFG) for 3.5 years and then continued with NN Investment Partners with their Data Governance journey for Responsible Investing ESG.
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 to 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 varying from Business Analysis to Project and Program Management in the Financial sector.
I joined Siemens Business Services in 2005 for IT Project Management of Data-related initiatives for Telecom companies in CIS countries.
For me, work-life balance is easy: when I am working, I am 100% focused on the job. 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.
