Group Director, Istanbul
Gamze joined Fjord Istanbul in 2016 as a Program Director before quickly moving on to the role of Studio Lead.
To Fjord, she brings 15 years of digital experience, during which she spent time in Seattle working across countries, selling and delivering digital transformational projects for clients such as Microsoft, Sun Microsystems, Dell Computers, DLP Texas Instruments, T-Mobile and McDonalds. In 2011, she returned to Turkey where, as the Client Services Director for Tribal DDB, she led award-winning campaigns for clients such as Pepsico, Vodafone and Unilever. She also holds a master’s of arts in International Studies from University of Washington and a bachelor’s degree from Bilkent University Political Science and Public Administration.
This education and experience inclient services and program management inform her user-centric approach, while her belief in the importance of data and its true interpretation influences every project she delivers, from product design to marketing campaigns.
As a big believer in the power of harmonious teams, Gamze’s first priority is to bring out the best in every team member and create a fun, dynamic working environment.
When she’s not at work, she’s likely out enjoying nature with her dog, painting, and – if the location allows – fishing or playing squash.
