A Turkish executive has received Outstanding Executive Leadership Award by Nestlé Skin Health for his exceptional performance throughout the company's transformation in 2018.

Can Öngen, Vice President at Nestlé Skin Health, has overseen the company’s commercial organization over 80 markets since 2017. He is responsible for the operations in Latin America, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia, Australia and Japan.

"We created a leaner organization by bringing three regions — Europe, Latin America, and Asia — under one roof. We reinvested our savings in our global brands and key markets,” Öngen has said in a written statement after receiving the award.

"We also exceeded our financial and organizational goals within the international markets and increased our investments significantly in Brazil, Germany, China and Turkey," he added.

Nestlé Skin Health launched its branch office in Turkey in 2016 to serve as a hub to the operations in a total of 28 countries.

Headquartered in Switzerland, Nestlé Skin Health boasts a net annual sale of about $3 billion. It employs nearly 5,000 staff and has three R&D centers.
