About Özge Yılmaz
Özge Yılmaz is the CEO of Dogus Yeni Internet.
Her love for mathematics led Ozge to Istanbul Science High School and later to the industrial engineering school at Bilkent University. She hated calculus. The analytical skills she gained in her early career roles as management consultant and R&D engineer helped her proficiency in puzzle games. When she was a graduate student at ODTU, she participated at a marketing contest for the lure of a laptop reward and found her dream- to pursue a career in advertising. After she read John Steel’s book, “Truth, Lies and Advertising,” she took the plunge as an intern at Y&R. With luck on her side, she had an amazing four years with great mentors and clients. Her career took her to work at Y&R in New York, where she served global brands like P&G, Estee Lauder, HP, and Citibank. She later worked at Added Value as a Director, responsible from PepsiCo's food and beverage brands, their launch and growth in 13 Latin American countries. Upon her return she worked at Alametifarika as the strategic planning director from 2008 until recently. At the beginning of 2010, she founded Virutic to work with people and crazy ideas in social media. Ozge organizes TEDxIstanbul in her play time. She is obsessed with bad translations of books and spends her spare times translating her favorite design and marketing books into Turkish.
