With a background that spans the range from intercultural program co-ordination (last years in his college years), television, media and fashion marketing, Metin has created a niche for himself and his company that is founded on his ability to set and seek trends, combined with an acute sense of how to communicate them.

At Boğaziçi University, Metin’s effortlessly gregarious nature already made him a hot commodity among the key people in Turkish business world including Istanbul based fashion designers. A pied piper among his peers, Metin, had the ability to create a scene based on this strength of his personality.

Brands like Profilo, Decorum, Fast Gym, IMIB (Istanbul Mine Exporters Association), Borusan Oto, Davidoff had become long term clients of Metin’s company and received brand positioning & PR services.
