I have been in and around Hospitality all my life. My parents were hotel and motel operators in my home country of Turkey and they also owned several high end Restaurants, Bars and Bistros.
21 years ago we arrived in New Zealand and I worked in my family’s restaurant while I studied my Bachelor of Political Science in International Relations at Auckland University and my Bachelor of Business at AUT.
I have strong motivation to succeed and this is clear from both my business life and sporting life. In Turkey I was the National Figure Skating Champion for 10 years. My regime saw me up at 5am every morning to train and then work in my parent’s restaurants.
When I moved to New Zealand I continued my love of skating and became a Silver Fern and New Zealand Figure Skating Champion. I represented New Zealand Internationally.
I understand the need for discipline and determination to succeed to these levels in life and I carry that through to my business life.
I have owned my own restaurants and cafes (some in partnerships) in both Auckland and Bay of Plenty.
Prior to LINK, I worked as a real estate agent for 4 years selling multi-million dollar apartment projects throughout Auckland (with particular focus on the CBD and North Shore). I worked closely with top NZ property developers, property traders and investors.
After some 16 years owning and running retail Hospitality businesses I have decided to turn my sales skills and drive towards helping people buy and sell Hospitality businesses with LINK Business Broking.
