Turkish BioMar’s joint venture, BioMar-Sagun, appointed Yasemin İşsever as new managing director to lead the business. İşsever, who has held a senior management role at Abalıoǧlu, is a well-respected professional in the Turkish aquaculture industry with a strong track record leading businesses within farming, processing and feed manufacturing.
She accepted the challenge of heading up the company, filling the vacancy left by Bora Aydemir, who was the managing director since the establishment of the company. Yasemin İşsever has been working at Abalıoǧlu since 2004, leading their aquaculture business and managing both the fish farming and feed production areas for the last ten years.
“I am very happy that Yasemin has accepted this challenge. We have an ambitious strategy for our joint venture together with Sagun Group, and we believe Yasemin will be highly valuable for the company going forward. Despite the challenges the Turkish market has experienced in the last few years, our BioMar-Sagun JV has been showing promising results. We firmly believe that Yasemin, together with our strong local team, will successfully continue the work on realizing our ambitions in Turkey,” stated Ole Christensen, VP EMEA Division, BioMar Group.
