Isitan has spent the past 20 years between Istanbul and New York developing his expertise in areas such as economics, finance, investments, business development and project management. Since his transfer to the football industry several years ago, he’s used his experience and understanding of business management and finances, first to help restructure Turkey’s most successful football club – Galatasaray – and then to take over and revitalize Fortuna Sittard, a Dutch club which for a long time had been distressed with financial and sporting problems.
As a result, he’s developed a solid know-how in the area of football finance and will be able to draw on his unique insights when equipping FBA Candidates with the financial literacy and strategic decision-making skills of a modern football CFO.
