When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a veterinarian. Then mathematics and analytics became my favorite.
What has motivated you to take on a position of high responsibility within Henkel?
I’m driven by challenge and success. I’m happy to develop further and to lead others to develop themselves as well.
What were the milestones in your career and are there people or circumstances that have favored your career?
I had the chance to work in different sectors in Turkey. I have made these decisions when I saw the opportunities. An important milestone for me was to have the chance to work on an international team when Turkey was integrated into the Central and Eastern Europe region. The other was when I got the responsibility to lead people. Now in another region (Middle East and Africa) I have the responsibility to lead an international team. I’ve worked with assertive and challenging leaders and colleagues during my career path.
What is your advice to women seeking to build careers?
Believe in yourself, take the risk and don’t miss the opportunities. Don’t try to be perfect in new responsibilities but keep developing.
