Accenture Goodbye

Dear all,
This is my last day at Accenture as I have decided to pursue a new career as CEO for MUDO. After being part of this great company for 10.5 years, it was not an easy decision and took a lot of consideration. Accenture is a GREAT place to work with GREAT colleagues. I am leaving because it was just the right time for a change and to try different challenging position.
I appreciate all the opportunities I was given during my time at Accenture ASG and Accenture IGEM. This has been an invaluable journey for me and I would like to thank all of you for your guidance, support and encouragement.
Especially thanks to: 
·         Fabio Vacirca for being supportive and for considering me as one of his sisters, in addition to being a challenging teacher, a role model, a sincere friend and a mentor, not only leading but also motivating and encouraging me at all times,
·         John Zealey, Angelo Italiano, Luca Mentucia, Fabio Benasso  for supporting me in my career development and expanding my vision.
·         Robert Jung, Jan Leitermann , Hans Jochen Kavasch for helping me to develop my career in difficult international experience in 25 countries for Chemicals Team and for Martin, Zeynep, Mariam, Stefan, Sina, Gerda, Amir, Caglar, Pierre,…  for my ASG friends  with whom I enjoyed every activity that we did all around the world and proved Accenture WORK HARD, PARTY HARD, PLAY HARD concept
·         Amy Loftus, Maria Angeles Ramirez for being perfect role model leader that I tried to be like  and touch other Accenture women’ s life

Special thanks to my great PRODUCTS TURKEY family ; for their contribution, collaboration and friendship. It has been a great pleasure and, more, a privilege working with you all and we could not achieve anything if you did not dedicate yourself for PRD TR and work so hard for last 6 yrs  together. I saw Products Turkey as my 3rd baby so I would like to watch closely in future to see that  it will always grow and reach our future targets

Bu maili yazmak ne kadar zormuş unutmuşum , tüm öğleden sonra bu maili yazarken karmkarışık duygularla kafayı yememeye çalıştım. Benim için önemli insanları unutucam diye korkup, Accenture’dan ayrıldığım için üzülüp, yeni bir sayfa açıyor olmanın heyecanıyla sevinerek geçen zor bir süreç. 
Anlatabildikleriyle DOST,
Eğlenebildikleri  ARKADAŞ
Anlaşabildikleriyle EŞ
Ağlayabildikleriyle KARDEŞ 
Olurlar. Accenture’da bu sure içinde bir çok Eş,dost,Arkadaş ve Kardeş sahibi olduğum için çok şanslıyım .
Bu zor ayrılık beni ‘Severek boşanıyoruz’  gibi hissettiriyor. Ayrılık kararımı paylaştıktan sonraki süreçte beni ÖZEL hissettiren tüm Accenture ailesine teşekkür ederim
