Founder, Manager , @voiceofjuly15

I am Talha Erhan Özcan. I was born in İstanbul in 1986. My hometown is Sinop. I graduated from Marmara University with a bachelors degree in Business Administration in 2007.

After that I got my MBA degree at Kadir Has University in 2010. During that time I had a chance to get the knowledge about areas such as Global Emerging Markets, Marketing, Human Resources, Strategic Planning, Investment Analysis and Portfolio Management, Managerial Accounting, Strategic Management,Financial Administration.

Gaining information about those areas that are related to each other helped me a lot complete my thesis on Strategic Management at Multi National Companies. Then, it was time for me to put into practice what I’ve learned so far in my education life, so I was employed by Halk Sigorta A.Ş. which is one of the most reliable insurance company in Turkey. Back then I worked ,as vice specialist, in Institutional Marketing Department of Halk Sigorta. One year work experience in that company was a huge step in my life toward my business life’s future, so it help me have the honor of working for Merkezi Kayıt Kuruluşu A.Ş. which is a public institution and established in 2001 as a legal entity under the provision of the Turkish Capital Markets Law. The registration of securities and the rights related to them are being registered electronically in a book entry form with respect to issuers, intermediary institutions and owner of rights.

I’ve been working for MKK for almost 12 years in human resorces, financial and administrative department. As a chief specialist, I am the team leader of procurement and contract operations.

Having background in both marketing and procurement fields made me acquire and develop my communication, negotiation and persuasion skills. As I stated before, by working for, companies having pretty high reputation globally and working with highly educated and chosen colleagues have been the most fundamental and stimulative things for me to improve what I lack of. For those who are curious about my personel life, I am one of the founders of and have been managing @voicesofjuly15 and @ofcoupsandmen social media organisations. By the way it is impossible not to mention about that I am a big fan of Fenerbahce. Like everyone else should be I love spending time with my son and my wife.
