Merve Oney Barlas has joined Istanbul-based financial services provider DgPays as Chief Legal Officer.
Barlas was an Associate Lawyer with Dentons legacy firm Salans between 2008 and 2012. Later, she held the same position with Herguner Bilgen Ozeke for over two years before moving in-house as the Director of Legal Affairs and Secretary of the Board of Directors of Mapfre Genel Sigorta.
"Fin-tech is such an attractive industry to find out more about," Barlas commented. "As a first step, I was personally interested in the topic but then, when the job offer from DgPays came out, I felt excited to learn more about the industry and even to work on it. DgPays is a rising star in the industry as a company that has been recently funded by Goldman Sachs and the EBRD. I am happy and very excited about my new journey in the fin-tech world."
