Murat Caglar, the former Legal Director at FLO Merchandising in Turkey, has become the Chief Legal Counsel at the Participation Banks Association of Turkey.
Caglar spent a little over one year at FLO, after having spent three years as the Head of Legal for International Law and Consultancy at Halkbank. He also spent three years as the Legal Affairs Manager at the BTA Food and Services Group, part of TAV Airports Holding.
"I have notable experience in both Islamic and Conventional Banking and am happy to act in the banking sector as well," Caglar informed CEE Legal Matters. "When I got the offer for this job, I thought it would be a good choice to use my knowledge and experience in such a place where the policies and strategies as well as many documentation of Turkish Islamic banks are negotiated. Furthermore, I am also keen on keeping in contact with foreign colleagues and professionals in order to achieve better goals. TKBB will also help me in achieving this matter and sharing our knowledge and experience mutually."
Cagler obtained his law degree from the Marmara University in 1999 and followed that with LL.M.s from Marmara University in 2002 and the University of Stockholm in 2005.
