Eser in a few words

I am a management consultant with an entrepreneurial drive. I have close to 15 years of experience holding various management roles in consultancies, multinational companies, start-ups (including my own) and scale-ups.

Throughout my career, I've led complex strategy consulting, marketing and operations projects across a wide range of sectors and have experience building and scaling start-ups, which includes product and proposition design, angel fundraising, team building and growth marketing. I have had P&L ownership and managed 8-digit marketing budgets.

Key expertise include business and marketing strategy (formulation and execution), go-to-market, market research & market entry strategy, international expansion, commercial due diligence, digital strategy and e-commerce.
