I was born in Ankara in 1966. After studying economics, I worked as Finance manager in international companies for many years. In 1999, I started private business with my partners. Many years passed with a tough but enjoyable tempo adorned with new jobs and partnerships, company sales and mergers. Finally I joined Karina family with a company merger in August 2014.
