We are now part of a larger family, and with our growing family, we aim to become the market leader in Turkey and Europe."

The acquisition of COZUMEVI, a leading SAP partner, fits perfectly with our strategy." emphasises Khalil Hodaibi, CEO of the SOA People group. “Welcoming the exceptional 250+ workforces in our family is an important step for us, not only because we want to further develop and consolidate our position in the important Turkish market, but also because the level of expertise and quality of people in Turkey will be a game-changer for our R&D and Nearshore strategies at group level. Our solid organisational and financial foundations made this move possible, will make it a success and will contribute reaching 250 million euros in revenue.”
