Oguz started up his company at a young age with his colleague Emin Altin after gaining experience at prestigious banks in the finance sector including HSBC, TEB, and BankEuropa. Oguz combined his industrial engineering background with fin-tech and mar-tech enthusiasm to come up with innovative software product ideas which later turned out to be number one omnichannel solution for enterprises in Turkey: SmartMessage Marketing Platform. Oguz’s dreams continue in the form of expanding ODC and SmartMessage Marketing Platform to new geographies at an accelerating pace. Naturally, he has to do it that way since he is a motorcycle rider who believes in “Rock Hard Ride Free” philosophy. And yes, he plays electro guitar too.
Emin partnered with his colleague Oguz Kucukbarak to establish a company of his dreams after a successful banking career in pioneer banks of Turkey including BBVA Garanti Bank, HSBC, and BankEuropa. With his management experience and skills, Emin played a significant role in placing ODC Business Solutions in Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50 list that salutes the fastest growing companies in specific sectors. For building successful strategies “reading” has an inspirational power for Emin. Also as a devoted Galatasaray SK supporter, he always steps on the pitch for new victories and trophies. ODC’s success stories are just proofs of that.
Kerim Alain Bertrand
Senior Vice President Global Sales & Marketing
After delivering stunning financial results in the telecommunications industry, Sevil started her journey in ODC as the director of sales and marketing. Under her leadership, ODC’s commercial success sharply accelerated ensuring the place of ODC among the fastest growing technology companies of Turkey (Thank you Deloitte for bringing this fact into life). Sevil has career roots in journalism, copywriting and literature, so we are pretty sure that she will catch our typos, misuse of words & writing mistakes at a glance (We still wonder how she still manages to do that on a thousand times controlled documents). She’s quite a singer, but unfortunately finds no time for mesmerizing us with her voice. ( Favorite Song “Ok ladies, which invoices did we issue this month?”)
