My name is Alper Ayhan. I am a procurement professional with experience in raw materials, packaging, and indirect categories.
I have seen the best and the worst while working at a large brewer in Russia, as the beer market boomed in 2000s only to decline sharply in 2010s. And this got me involved in a series of tough change projects like company merger, procurement reorganization, redesigning of processes, launching a shared service center, and procurement outsourcing.
I am currently working with Şişecam, which is a leading glass manufacturer in the region.
I spent many years at finance at the early period of my career and I hold Certified Public Accountant and Certified Internal Auditor qualifications.
I speak English, Russian and Turkish.
