Ayşe Güçlü Onur, Egon Zehnder’s office leader in Istanbul, heads Egon Zehnder’s Financial Services, Private Equity, and Financial Officers practices in Turkey. She is a trusted senior talent management advisor serving Turkish and international clients. Ayşe is also active in the Firm’s Executive Assessment & Development and Sustainability practices, and engages in a variety of initiatives as a member of its global Diversity & Inclusion Practice.

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.

Ayşe earned a BA from Bosphorus University in Istanbul and an MBA from Duke University in the U.S. She chairs Ashoka Turkey, serves on the advisory council of Endeavor Turkey, and cofounded Yenidenbiz, a social venture that helps talented women reenter the workforce after a lengthy break. Ayşe also belongs to the European advisory board of the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University. She is the proud mother of two young children.
