I was born in April 1952 in Mardin – Midyat. Between 1973 – 1976, I studied English language in Belgium and England. I then returned to Turkey in 1976. For over 40 years, I have had my own businesses in the Food Industry, Finance and Real Estate. I am an optimist, exceptionally hardworking and have a keen interest in making life good for those I am with. I am the general director of Yakup Real Estate Limited Company, which was established by myself.
I’m happily married and the father to 21 amazing children. This is one my proudest achievements.
