Filiz Sahenk manages the branded clothing and tourism components of family conglomerate Dogus Holding.
Dogus also operates in real estate and media, financial services, construction and auto import and distribution.
Most of the fortune derives from Garanti Bank. The family sold its remaining 10% of Garanti to Spain’s BBVA in 2017, bringing in $900 million.
Dogus’ hotel portfolio includes the Astir Palace and Athens Hilton in Greece, the Capri Palace in Italy and Rome’s Aldrovandi Villa Borghese.
In 2018, Dogus sold 17% of d.ream (Dogus Restaurant Entertainment and Management) to private investors for $200 million.
