To expand his Immigration experience, he left his HSBC days behind and moved to Henley and Partners. As a former Managing Partner of Henley and Partners, he helped establish successfully and manage the Vancouver, London, and Istanbul offices. He has established exceptional teams under his command, which enabled him to create a leading Immigration Team for the Russian, Middle Eastern, Chinese, North American, and West African markets.
Hakan also played a pivotal role in the early 2000s, when he was part of the team behind creating various CBI Programmes. He also traveled extensively with Caribbean Prime Ministers to promote Growing Caribbean CBI programs in the Far East, Middle East, South East Asia, the UK, and Europe.
He was instrumental in launching the early days of the Malta Citizenship Program and helped promote the program across the globe. That meant he woke up one day in Bogota, the next day in Valetta, and the following week in Jakarta, not to mention fitting in between Lagos, London, Geneva, Singapore, Mumbai, Colombo, and beyond.
Based on his extensive experience in the field, he has established the “BEYOND” Immigration Brand with his long-time immigration industry colleagues, Polina (UK), Liuqing (China), and Sabrina (Hong Kong).
Beyond as a brand initially started as Beyond Residence & Citizenship in the UK. This entity is currently managed by Legendary power duo Polina and Tatiana, while Hakan’s other associated Advisors, Board Members Liuqing and Sabrina, run the Far East Operations from Hong Kong and Shanghai.
