Hidayet Turkoglu appointed as CEO of basketball federation

Hidayet Turkoglu was appointed as the TBF’s new CEO Turkish Basketball Federation (TBF), President Harun Erdenay announced at a press conference in İstanbul on Monday.

Playing in the NBA with the Sacramento Kings, San Antonio Spurs, Orlando Magic, Toronto Raptors, Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Clippers, Turkoglu has become the new CEO of TBF. A longtime leader of the Turkish national team, he won silver medals at EuroBasket 2001 and the 2010 FIBA World Championship, both of which took place in Turkey.

“In addition to his fantastic NBA career, nearly every summer Hidayet represented Turkey on the national team and inspired millions across our country,” Erdenay said at the press conference. “As CEO, Hidayet will continue to serve Turkish Basketball, and our federation will benefit from his experience and leadership.”

“Here [at the TBF] I’m going to do everything I can for our people and youth,” Turkoglu said. “I’m someone who gives a lot of importance to Turkish sport. My wish is for there to be Turkish basketball players around the world, and that they represent us in the best way possible. We have to put forward a vision for our young people.”
