The number of executives appointed to high-level positions at Trend Micro, which has signed many successful projects in Turkey and other regions, is increasing, and their responsibilities are expanding even more.
Turkish executives, who have become a preferred group worldwide with their ability to make quick decisions, flexibility, and high performance under pressure, continue to attract the attention of global companies. On the other hand, while many national and international organizations prefer to reduce their workforce and shrink, Trend Micro continues to grow and relies on Turkish executives in this growth. In this regard, Trend Micro, which aims to benefit more from the experience of Turkish executives, recently expanded the scope of various executives working in Turkey and appointed them to high-level positions. After the success achieved following these appointments, Trend Micro expanded the responsibilities of Turkish executives with three more high-level appointments.
Canan Dumanay was appointed as the Director of Financial and Public Sector Business Development for the Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa Region, Hasan Gültekin as the Mediterranean Countries Regional Manager, and Yakup Börekcioğlu as the Deputy President responsible for Financial and Public Sector Business in the Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa Region.
The number of global companies that prefer Turkish executives is increasing day by day.
The rise of Turkish executives continues in the global arena, who are successful in overcoming economic crises and other challenges. The number of Turkish executives working in leading companies worldwide is increasing steadily. Aware of this situation, Trend Micro continues to expand the scope of Turkish executives working in Turkey and other regions, and to appoint them to new positions to benefit from their experiences and expertise. It is expected that the rise of Turkish executives at Trend Micro will continue in the upcoming period.
