Philips Lighting has appointed Goktug Gur as head of its operations in the Middle East (excluding Saudi Arabia) and Turkey.

Gur has replaced Rami Hajjar, who has taken over as country leader for Indonesia, Philips Lighting’s fourth largest market in the world.

The appointment of Gur coincides with the lighting manufacturer’s revised regional mandate, which has brought together markets in the Middle East (excluding Saudi Arabia) and Turkey.

The move comes in a bid to increase synergies and speed up the execution of Philips Lighting’s regional initiatives.

During the course of his 22-year career, Gur has delivered numerous projects within the energy sector, and boasts experience working in Mediterranean countries, Central Asia, and the Middle East.

Most recently, Gur held the position of chief executive officer of Philips Lighting Turkey. He was also CEO of Philips Turkey from 2013 to 2016.

A graduate of Yildiz Technical University, Gur also holds MBAs from Marmara University and the University of Maine.
