Hi, I´m Alev Gokce – I have been a marketer all my adult life. I have focused on brand development, brand building, and brand creation. The word ´creation´ points to innovation, of course. So, I have three hats – marketing, innovation, and strategy to combine them all.
After business studies, I worked in amazing marketing-driven companies like Unilever and The Coca-Cola Company for twenty-four years. I did projects in probably twenty-something countries on three continents, ran marketing for ten-plus countries on two continents, and lived in three different cities on two continents as an expat. You guessed it right – I love the international aspect of my job.
In the last ten years, after having lived and worked in Atlanta, GA, for nine years, I returned to my hometown Istanbul and set up my international consulting business.
I consult, mentor, teach and speak about brands, marketing, innovation, and strategy.
And not to forget - just because it is my passion, I obtained an MA in Interior Design from SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design). So, I deeply appreciate how design in multiple forms can enhance human life.
