IBIS Turkey announces Ibrahim Aybar as keynote speaker

IBIS Turkey is now firmly established as the region’s leading collision repair conference and will return to the Hilton Istanbul Bomonti on 30 October 2018.

Turkey is one of the world’s most rapidly evolving countries and the local collision repair market is going through a huge period of change. The gradual standardisation of the industry, improving safety levels and the parts debate is emerging alongside global issues of new technology, changing insurance models and an international skills shortage.

IBIS is thrilled to announce the keynote speaker for IBIS Turkey 2018 is Retired CEO & Chairman, Renault MAİS A.Ş, Ibrahim Aybar. Ibrahim graduated from Istanbul Technical University as a Mechanical and Aerospace Engineer in 1974 and then received the title of Engineer MSc. in 1976.

Following several private sector experiences in and out of Turkey, he served in the public sector as Deputy Undersecretary to the Prime Minister’s Office and Board Member and Vice-Chairman of Sumerbank Holding AS. From 1992 to 2017, he worked as CEO for Varan Turizm and Renault MAIS, as a Board Member for Renault MAIS, Oyak-Renault ve ORFIN. Having also sat in the boards of NGOs like International Passenger Transportation Association (UYTAD), Automotive Distributers Association (ODD) and International Investors Association (YASED) during his professional career.

Ibrahim Aybar’s presentation titled ‘Future Opportunities in the car sector’ will cover the current evolution of the car markets, electric and autonomous cars. He will also talk about the current economic situation in Turkey from a different perspective.
