Initiatives

“Iskender and I worked together at Samsung Electronics when I was the Company's Chief Innovation Officer and President of Samsung NEXT.

He stands out as a rare leader with a disruptive mindset and a genuine desire to share his expertise with others.

He led Samsung NEXT in Europe with great resilience and focus while also being flexible and creative. As Samsung NEXT's Global Head of Media Tech, he made an impact early on and quickly became a well respected member of our Executive Leadership Team.

He is engaging and very personable. I'm glad we worked together and hope our paths cross again soon.”
