International Investment Services establishes FDI lead generation operation in Turkey

International Investment Services and WAVTEQ establishes FDI lead generation operation in Turkey

WAVTEQ's joint venture, International Investment Services GmbH ("IIS") establishes a new office in Istanbul, Turkey in August 2019 expanding the IIS office network in Europe to 6 countries.

The new Turkish presence will further strengthen the pan-European investment attraction consulting services offered by IIS. The Turkish office will augment IIS’s ability to help clients identify investment from Turkey and neighbouring countries and will be integrated as part of the wider IIS office network in Europe.

The Turkish office will be led by Cemalettin Gürel, who has been active in industry, marketing and sales for over twenty years. He has held leadership positions with several companies in Turkey including Koc Group, Kiraca Group, Peugeot S.A Turkey and Siamp Monaco. Cemalettin’s industry experience provides him with insight into the decision-making structures and drivers of Turkish companies. He also has an extensive network of contacts across different sectors and regions in the country, which is essential for effective investment attraction in Turkey. Cemalettin’s senior management and entrepreneurial experience across different industries make him a credible and effective representative for locations seeking to attract investment from Turkey.

Turkey is one of the world’s largest twenty economies and Turkish companies from a range of industries are actively looking for international expansion opportunities. Our new office in Turkey allows us to help our clients identify and establish contact to the decision makers of potential investors in this important market. We are delighted to welcome an experienced executive of Cemalettin’s calibre to our team.

—Andreas Dressler
Managing Director of IIS

Turkey as the 5th largest economy in Europe, is right at the crossroads of three continents, in direct interaction with a population of 1.7 billion and a 27 trillion dollars GDP within a 4 hours flight periphery. A very dynamic private sector currently exports 166 billion USD per year globally and there is a clear outward investment focus to facilitate continued strong reach and growth internationally. IIS provides access to a unique dataset and insights through their leading FDI product portfolio and corporate intelligence division to help exploit these investment opportunities faster. This data coupled with their proven world-class service approach has resulted in game changing investment for clients globally and I look forward to becoming part of the team and helping companies in Turkey grow and expand in international locations that will support their strategic agenda.
