With Ebru’s deep understanding of the business itself, as well as her experience and knowledge of the industry as a whole, she will play an instrumental role to the continued growth of the EMEA franchise.”

She joined Citi in 1997 as an IT Project Manager in Turkey and in 1999 was appointed Head of IT Project Management for the country. In 2000, Ebru’s role expanded to include Operations & Technology projects for Turkey. In 2001, she became Head of Custody and Clearing for Global Transaction Services (GTS), based in Istanbul. In 2004, Ebru moved to London and became GTS EMEA Head of Cash Management Implementation and then in 2008 she was appointed EMEA Head of Payments.

She holds a Master of Science in Computer Engineering from Bogazici University, Istanbul.
