Murat Yesildere, based in Istanbul, provides a full range of services from executive search and board consulting to management appraisals, serving clients across a variety of industries and functions. Deeply experienced in talent management and leadership assessments, Murat is also passionate about diversity and inclusion.

I am a lifetime student who believes in bringing diversity of thought to my client work. Being curious helps me better understand a client’s needs, and help them to find solutions.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder in 2000, Murat primarily worked in the banking sector. He was a Country Manager at CDI-Erste Bank, based in Istanbul, and earlier established the largest private mutual fund to serve a community of clothing and textile manufacturers. Other previous employers included GSD Investment Bank, K Leasing & Factoring, and Philip Morris International.

Murat earned a BS in Industrial Engineering from Boğaziçi University in Istanbul and an MSc in Business Economics from the University of Manchester’s Institute of Science & Technology. He serves on the board of PERYON, the national HR association of Turkey, as well as in the Turkish chapters of International Board Ready Women and the Professional Women’s Network. Murat is also a regular columnist for the monthly “Platin” magazine, writing about business, leadership, governance, diversity, and sports management, and regularly blogs on muratyesildere.com. He cofounded a “he for she” initiative called Yanındayız, a platform for Turkish men to support women, and has published a book on diversity called “Oh nooo… the CEO is giving birth”.
