Farmasi announced the appointment of Sinan Tuna as chief executive officer of North America, effective immediately.
Tuna’s role will encompass leading operations in the United States, Mexico, Canada and Puerto Rico. He will be responsible for driving growth and ensuring operational efficiencies.
“Sinan is an incredible global leader and we are confident in his abilities to achieve continued success for Farmasi and grow the North America business,” said Hakan Ömer Tuna, chairman of the Board for Farmasi.
Tuna received his education in the UK at Regent’s University. He previously worked at a leading research and advisory company. He has been a Board member at Farmasi since 2019. His grandfather, the late Dr. Cevdet Tuna, was the founder of one of the Republic of Turkey’s first pharmacies. Tuna continues his grandfather’s legacy as the third generation to lead the Farmasi business. In December 2019, Sinan was announced as the youngest member of the esteemed annual Fortune Turkey 40 Under 40 list.
“We are rapidly growing and strengthening our brand,” said Tuna. “Out of all the counties in which we operate, we have achieved the fastest growth in the United States, and with Farmasi’s ability to innovate quickly, paired with expertise in manufacturing and production, we have a strong foundation for success.”
Farmasi was founded in Istanbul over 70 years ago. The company plans to launch Farmasi Mexico and Canada in the first quarter of 2021.
