About me

Can started his advertising career in 2000 at TBWA after being refused to be hired by his father – also an agency owner. After working undercover at TBWA, in 2006, he embarked on a lifelong dream of reviving the old family agency business; Çözüm.

The agency became one of the Top 5 independent agencies in Turkey winning local and international awards at Effies, New York Festivals, Epica and One Show.

In 2014, a majority stake of Çözüm had been acquired by TBWA\ and Omnicom Holding and he’s back where he started after many years.

The same year he became a partner at the Integer Group by acquiring shares, one of the world’s largest retail and shopper marketing agencies operating under TBWA.

He is still a shareholder and CEO of Being\Çözüm and Integer Group. Under his leadership the agency is serving a portfolio of blue-chip clients with 80+ people. He is an executive member at the TBWA Group Turkey.

He is a recent graduate of the Omnicom University; an educational initiative led by Harvard Business School and IESE Business School bringing together Omnicom leaders.

He served as a board member at the Turkish Advertising Agencies Association between 2011-2012, one of the youngest people to be elected to the Board. He is a fluent traveler, loves winter sports, running, music and art.
