I especially appreciate Eren's focus on early risk and opportunity diagnosis in his board and executive leadership roles. These are essential traits for the positive governance of risk-taking.”

GLOBAL, ORGANIZATION, June 1, 2023/ -- The DCRO Institute, the world's leading source of risk governance training and credentials for board members and c-suite executives, announced today the award of the prestigious Certificate in Risk Governance® to Eren Güra of Istanbul, Türkiye. He is the first in Türkiye to receive this recognition.

Eren has served for over six years as an independent board member and member of the Audit Committee for Türkiye Finans Participation Bank (a subsidiary of Saudi National Bank) in Istanbul. Previously he was a board member and interim CEO at Hexagon Solid Waste Management Company, in charge of restructuring multi-lateral financial institutions' debt and operational turnaround of the company. Eren has 30+ years of experience in banking, telecom, construction, energy, chemicals, and infrastructure, having engaged in operational and P&L responsibility, risk management, and corporate finance, always under complex shareholding structures.

Leveraging his accumulated experience and network, Eren is currently focusing on restructuring and operational transformation/turnaround on an international level. His advisory work includes projects with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the International Finance Corporation – IFC. Eren has also served on the Enerya Natural Gas Distribution Company board as the Group Chief Financial Officer of STFA Investment Holding AS. Previously, he was Chief Financial Officer for AVEA, the mobile telecom operator. He also worked for Citibank in Istanbul and Procter & Gamble, both in Brussels and Istanbul. He earned his MBA from KU Leuven in Belgium and his BSc in Industrial Engineering from Boğaziçi University.

"We are very pleased to welcome Eren to our alumni club, especially as the first in Türkiye to be recognized with the Certificate in Risk Governance®," said David R. Koenig, President and Chief Executive Officer of the DCRO Institute. "I especially appreciate his focus on early risk and opportunity diagnosis in his board and executive leadership roles as these are essential traits for the positive governance of risk-taking we teach."

The Certificate in Risk Governance® is awarded to those who have completed The Board Members' Course on Risk® - an intensive 17-course education program and evaluation. The curriculum is designed for current and aspiring board members who seek to advance the governance of risk-taking at their organizations and those who interact with boards. Taught by some of the world's leading figures in risk governance, the program features lessons by nearly 50 board members, c-level executives, and well-known authors from five continents. No course on risk for board members as robust as this - depth, practicality, and global expertise - exists anywhere else.

"The Certificate in Risk Governance® program of the DCRO Institute opens a window with a view of positive risk-taking for value creation versus a primarily loss minimization approach," said Mr. Güra. "Furthermore, it gives important insights of risk governance in today's changing business landscape that a board director should be aware of and manage."
