We shared the first one with you in 2000. The 2014 survey is based on these fourteen years of accumulated knowledge. With the list of “The 30 Most Powerful Businesswomen in Turkey” we are continuing to reveal the performance of the rising women in the business community. Both the rise of professional executives and the increase in global responsibilities made their mark on this year’s list. The 2014 listings are shaped by those whose fields of responsibility have broadened and whose executive authority has been increased. There are also some striking new names in the 2014 list. These names include Ayşegül İldeniz, Canan Özsoy, Jaklin Güner and İpek Ilıcak Kayaalp.
