Biography

I harness 20 years of finance expertise in various sectors as well as biopharma with the mission of adding value not only to the future but also people. During this time, every company which I was on had a completely different corporate culture.

I always interpreted this as a chance; because experiencing all of these cultures created my vision today.

“To bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete in the world. -If you have a body, you are an athlete.” with its mission, Nike
“To be the best financial services company in the world.” with its mission, JP Morgan Safetykleen
“Good Food, Good Life” with its mission, Nestle
“Caring with discovery to create medicines that make life better for people around the world.” with its purpose, Eli Lilly and Company
“To improve the lives of patients across the globe.” with its mission, TEVA
And now “To create a better, healthier world for all people” with its vision, Gilead Sciences…

Each of them were important companies that shaped my understanding of “The world of finance cannot consist only of mathematics and analysis.”

All of my experiences have shown me that; there will be no real success with non-human and non-innovative financial management.

For this reason; in this period of great transformations in the 21st century, I believe that we should focus on these 3 concepts:

People-oriented approach, innovation and analytical thinking
