Burcin joins the UK team from her previous position as CEO of Sodexo Benefits & Rewards in Turkey. As CEO, she aims to build on the success of Sodexo Engage since its rebrand in August 2017 following the acquisition and integration of Motivcom. She will spend the next three months transitioning into the role.
In her previous role, Burcin worked with the Benefits & Rewards Services team in Turkey to introduce a number of new services, marketing initiatives and HR programmes to improve the Quality of Life of the business’ stakeholders. This led Burcin to achieve solid business volume growth and strong financial results through a well-executed digital strategy.
Burcin is a key player in Sodexo Women’s Forum for Talent (SWIFT) and works in the company’s Gender Network Group. Prior to joining Sodexo in Turkey, Burcin held a number of roles at Philips throughout a 14-year tenure, where she worked in Switzerland, Poland and Holland across product management, communication, marketing and sales. Following a position as Country Manager in Turkey, she moved to Shenzhen, China, to take up the role of Business Development Head for Philips Consumer Lighting APAC.
This latest announcement from Sodexo Engage is part of a planned succession strategy, with Burcin taking over from Iain McMath who has held the role for 17 years. Iain will work with Burcin through this transition period before taking on a consultative role within the wider Sodexo organisation.
