Global technology giants are now following the recent trend abounding in the tourism, food and retail sectors of an increased interest in bringing on Turks for high-level management positions.
Global software and hardware firms are handing over the captain's mast to the Turks. Following in the footsteps of the Nasdaq-trading Maxim Integrated, the United States' Intersil Company has also handed over their CEO position to a Turk, well-known IT specialist Necip Sayıner.
Intersil, which creates analog and mixed-signal solutions, began trading on Nasdaq in 1999 and has over 2,000 employees. As of March 14th, Sayıner becomes both the President and Chief Executive Officer of Intersil and a member of the Company's board of directors.
In other news, a mega-technology firm in the Middle East has also offered up their captain position to a Turkish administrator. Dubai-based card producers Future Card has brought on Ayhan Yalçıntaş as the firm's new CEO.
