The Team

Sevi Gürsoy

I was born in Izmir in 1985. I have completed my middle and high school education at The American Collegiate Institute in Izmir. After completing my undergraduate education at Boğaziçi University, Department of Educational Sciences, Guidance and Psychological Counseling major, I have worked in the Corporate Communication and Training departments of Migros Ticaret A.S. In 2012, I started to work as the Training Manager at Le Méridien Istanbul Etiler, a subsidiary of Starwood Hotels & Resorts. In the same year, I started my Executive MBA studies at Istanbul Technical University and graduated in 2014 with a specialization in marketing. I have started working at Marriott International following the acquisition of Starwood Hotels & Resorts by Marriott International in 2016. In 2017, I had the opportunity to follow my passion for marketing at work also and started working as the Marketing Manager at Le Méridien Istanbul Etiler. My work has been awarded many times by Marriott International. In 2019, I won the Marriott International ELITE Awards as Brand and Marketing Leader of the Year; first in the European region and then worldwide. After this award, I was transferred to JW Marriott Istanbul Bosphorus and Sheraton Istanbul City Center, both pre-opening hotels, as The Director of Marketing and PR. I have handled all the marketing processes at the opening of both hotels. As of 2021, I continue my work as a business partner in marketing for hotels and companies.
