After the approval of National Bank of Serbia, Feza Tan was appointed to be a president of the Executive Board of UniCredit Bank Srbija a.d. She inherited this function from Cila Ihas, who decided to continue her career outside of UniCredit Bank.
Feza Tan started her career back in 1993 in Turkish Yapi Kredi Bank, a member of UniCredit, as a junior at the Department of Credit and Economy. After only two years, she became an analyst within the same Department. In 1997, Feza was appointed as a Manager for Problem Placement Management within Corporate and Project Financing, where she established the first Project Financing Team in Turkey. Since 2001, she performed on the function of director of Department of Problematic Placements for Economy and Commercial Loans, only to take over the position of director of the Corporate and Commercial Loan Department in 2009 and run it until 2013, when she was appointed Director of the Corporate and Investment Banking Sector.
Besides that, Feza was a member of the Credit Board and a member of the Executive Board in leasing and factoring companies, in addition to being a member of three international branches of Yapi Kredi Bank. She came to UniCredit Bank Srbija from the position of Director of the Corporate and Investment Banking Sector which she ran in Yapi Kredi Bank, where she was also a member of the Executive Board.
Feza Tan has a degree in Economy from the Bogazici University in Istanbul, as well as a degree in risk management, acquired at the Business School in Manchester.
Carlo Vivaldi, the director of UniCredit Division for Business in Central and Eastern Europe, said : ‘’I am convinced that Feza Tan will, thanks to the impressive experience she had gained over the past 25 years in Yapi Kredi Bank, quite quickly integrate in the local market and make possible the continuation of the successful business for UniCredit Bank Srbija.’
