Former DGPays Chief Legal Officer Merve Oney Barlas has joined TurkNet as Chief Legal and Compliance Officer.
Barlas had been with DgPays since 2021 (as reported by CEE In-House Matters on June 10, 2021). She joined her previous company from Mapfre Genel Sigorta, where she served as Director of Legal Affairs and Secretary of the Board of Directors between 2016 and 2021.
Before moving in-house, Barlas worked as an Associate Lawyer with Herguner Bilgen Ozeke between 2014 and 2016 and as an Associate Lawyer with Dentons legacy firm Salans between 2008 and 2012.
"The telecommunications industry has always been and continues to be the center for innovation and growth," commented Barlas. "As a big machine, telecommunications touch nearly all of us. It allows us to communicate in all senses – we can speak, do business, and share thoughts, ideas, and emotions. I am so happy and excited to start my new journey in this big global system, especially with TurkNet – the most innovative digital player in the Turkish market."
