Meet the Team
Hatice started her professional career at a startup in project management at the beginning of the millenium and moved to Google in 2006 first in Dublin (Ireland), and then in 2010 in London (UK). She’s performed as an executive in charge of partnerships teams covering various regions in EMEA and closed and managed dozens of multi-million USD partnerships deals at Google on various products and platforms over the years (Search, Display (AdSense), Ads, Doubleclick, Android), in countries such as the UK, Czech Republic, Russia, the Middle East and others.
After almost 14 years, she decided to go back to where she began - and most enjoyed - and co-founded Navivest to help startups with her extensive background on high growth online companies and operating a global multi-national.
She’s an avid gym-goer and runner, and loves walking her dog, Soda, in the park and by the canals in London very much.
