History

AB Consultancy and Investment Services was set up in 1995 by Amb. Cem Duna. Following a three-decade long career in the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs – Amb. Duna decided to implement his acquired know-how to the private sector.

Initially, the firm began advising Turkish companies on the significance of the Customs Union with the E.U., to which, Amb. Duna was instrumental in signing during his last posting as Chief Negotiator, and Permanent Delegate to the E.U. in Brussels.

Following its infancy stage and interest by the international community towards the Turkish market, AB Consultancy expanded its offering to Global Conglomerates operating and/or interested in entering the Turkish market, and vice-versa, to locals out of Turkey.

Our services include Financial Advisory and Consultancy, Management Consultancy, Business Relations Management, Public Relations – Media & Communications (both traditional and digital), Government Relations, Crisis Management, and more generally Project Management – ranging from market entry, alternative markets, both in and outbound of Turkey – to developing and delivering fast, flexible, original solutions to the clients’ everyday needs.
