Background:

Elcin joins the Jenkins MAC as an online student. She has lived in the Raleigh area now for over 30 years, which she says is long enough to be considered a local. She is currently working for Credit Suisse and has worked there for almost fourteen years.  When she joined the company, she started out in an operations control and regulatory team. As a part of that team for eight years, she managed a team responsible for supporting and enhancing the overall control governance framework across the operations division.

A little over five years ago, Elcin moved into group finance and is now a regional manager responsible for the timely and accurate preparation of the financial statements for all significant US entities of Credit Suisse ranging in size from less than a $1 million to over $120 billion in total assets.  She is also the  product lead for securities instruments.

This current role in finance led her to the Jenkins MAC. Over the years, she has developed a strong passion for accounting and finance, and plans to continue progressing her career in this space while also becoming a CPA in the near future.

On a more personal note, Elcin is a proud mom of two boys – ages 8 and 4 – who keep her and her husband quite busy.  You can also find her taking part in her favorite activities including cooking, running, watching a good show, and traveling with her family.
