  • Vuslat Doğan Sabancı (born 1971 in Istanbul, Turkey) is the second daughter of Turkish media proprietor Aydın Doğan and is currently the Chairwoman of Hürriyet, the most influential daily newspaper in Turkey. A graduate of Bilkent University Dept. of Economics, Vuslat Doğan Sabancı went on to attend Columbia University in New York for her graduate studies in International Media and Communications. Vuslat Doğan Sabancı currently chairs the Board of Directors at Hürriyet, and has held this post since May 26, 2010. Doğan Sabancı worked at the editorial department of The New York Times for a year, and later at The Wall Street Journal, where she was instrumental in the formation of the Asian Business World News Channel and the paper’s Latin America edition, before she joined Hürriyet. Vuslat Doğan Sabancı joined Hürriyet in 1996 as Vice President in charge of advertising, before receiving a promotion to the post of Marketing Group President three years later. Her responsibilities in Hürriyet included marketing, sales, human resources and information technologies (IT). During her tenure at CEO capacity between 2004 and 2010, Vuslat Doğan Sabancı transformed Hürriyet from a leading paper in Turkey into an international powerhouse through her acquisition of Trader Media East (TME) in 2007 in a move that represented the largest ever foreign procurement executed by a Turkish Company. TME is an online and printed media advertising company operating in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Hungary, Croatia and Slovenia. Iz ruki ruki is among the best recognized media brands in Russia, while Irr.ru is the leading online classifieds company. Vuslat Doğan Sabancı ensured Hürriyet‘s position as a major player within the emerging new media in Turkey through investing in digital publishing and services. The return on such investments manifested itself in the form of launching news portal Hürriyet and raising it to the level of those sites across Europe generating highest levels of traffic. Hürriyet currently offers classified advertising services through its sister sites such as hurriyetemlak.com, hurriyetoto.com, yenibiris.com, in addition to yakala.co, a deal finder website, and yenicarsim.com, an e-trading portal.
