I have gained experience within information technologies and digital departments during 8 years in the leading companies of Turkey. Throughout my experience as a consultant and an instructor of IT related courses for corporate companies, I had the opportunity to improve the wealth of my skills on IT systems and project management coupled with my abilities of time management, interpersonal communication and multi tasking. I have been continuing to work, especially on microsoft technologies and agile project management in corporate consultancy.
Co-Founder / CEO

CekiciCagir provides the fastest and most reliable towing service in Turkey. As CekiciCagir, we helped over 20.000 people who have trouble on the roads in the last year.
I focus on our product from product management, strategy, and technology perspectives to fix customer problems as best as we can. My main goal is solving problems while eliminating and/or minimizing human error. Therefore, I built an automated agent system to connect customers with the service regarding their needs.
Our next steps are;
- Creating a cluster-based prediction system to decrease the time of emergency teams’ arrival to the scene of the accident.
- Build a communication system with emergency contacts
- Build an early warning system for the car owners
