Novisto is proud to announce the hiring of Sirel Oktamis as Chief Customer Officer. In this role, she will build and lead the entire Customer Success function for Novisto and our end-to-end ESG data management and reporting platform.
Oktamis brings nearly two decades of experience in the software development, digital marketing, and ad tech worlds, at both startups and large multinational corporations. She led Project Management, Account Management, Client Relations, as well as Operations (Finance, Legal, HR, Facilities) during her career.
