Board Chairman and CEO's Message

İlknur Aktaş
Board Chairman

Dear Shareholders of Aktaş Holding; 

With an understanding of “keeping the values alive”, Aktaş Holding has grown step by step since 1938 and continues to fill us with pride thanks to its each and every kind of detail in this 80-year-tale. 

As of 2018, this old and rooted plane tree, by whose foundation we are excited, grounds on change and transformation, reveals a strong vision and keeps working for corporate culture constantly. 

Of course, business world goes through a rapid change just like each and every area of our lives. 

And this change feels its presence on both levels of management and operation just to keep companies work and exist in the future. 

This deep-seated company, whose foundations were laid by late Sait Aktaş in a small workshop, has successfully come to these days with the help of Şahap Aktaş’s strong vision, entrepreneurial spirit and hard-working character.

As of April 2018, in the 80th year of our company, I am happy and excited to take on such an important mission as Chief Executive Officer. This is a relay race, without any doubt, and we will go on doing our best to carry the flag forward. 

The important point for our company is the sustainable success and a view for creating values. Our works for being the better and ultimately perfect will continue. As known, there are so few family businesses that end up with 3rd generation leaders. And we will continue our journey with the awareness of this important responsibility and also a dynamic structure. 

Aktaş Holding has already had the potential to do much better with its available human resources. 

In fact, our success is based on these competent human resources, which primarily leads us to invest in human labor.

On the other hand, we have focused on our social responsibilities in our 80th year. We aim to realize our corporate social responsibility works that add values to our society under the leadership of Aktaş Educational Foundation. 

To sum, we will work with the same determination to meet the expectations of tomorrow at its best through developing right strategies and setting the world on fire like how we did in the past. 

On this wise, I celebrate 80th year of Aktaş Holding and give my love and respect to everybody.
