My mission is to use Data Science practices to lead Data-driven IT Projects & Products effectively.
Since moving to Amsterdam in 2017, I have provided IT Professional Services for the Bank of Tokyo (MUFG). 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.
