She is a trusted senior talent management advisor serving Turkish and international clients. In addition to her client work, she co-leads the Learning & Development Practice of the firm globally.

I am genuinely curious about where people come from and what they have done before today and why.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Ayşe set up and led BNP Paribas JV’s strategy and business development function in Istanbul. Before that she was a Strategy Consultant with Booz Allen Hamilton in New York and London, where she advised a roster of financial services clients. Earlier, Ayşe was an Istanbul-based Senior Consultant with Arthur Andersen.
