CEM SİYAHİ

CEM SİYAHİ

Vice Chairman

Cem Siyahi had the opportunity to get acquainted with international trade at an early age in Eskişehir owing to his grandfather's professional endeavors in mining, mine management and exportation as well as meerschaum production. Therefore he acquired the habit of perfectionism very early due to the meticulousness, craftsmanship and foreign customers that were among the requirements of the profession. He was introduced to the construction industry at the beginning of his 20s, owing to his career adventure that took him to the sites in Jordan with many responsibilities. Acquiring a wide range of experiences at a young age, Siyahi found the opportunity to learn how to work with foreigners in a business environment, how to establish construction sites and expertise in purchasing.

He had an active role in the foundation of Polimeks with his long-time friend Erol Tabanca, with whom he would once play ball in his childhood. During those years when the life standards in Ashgabat were trying to keep up with the Western civilization, he had become a companion to Erol Tabanca and Abdullah Gözener by providing them with support from Istanbul.

After completing his high school degree at Eskişehir Maarif Koleji, Cem Siyahi continued his studies at Eskişehir Economic and Commercial Sciences, Faculty of Administration. Today, he is the Vice Chairman of the Executive Board and Founding Partner of Polimeks, which has its signature inscribed in the most amazing buildings in Ashgabat.

Cem Siyahi has over 30 years of experience in the fields of finance and administrative management.

Back in those childhood days, one could hardly imagine that three kids would grow as close friends and lead a giant organization with thousands of employees, together based on the team spirit that was there even in those early days of childhood... Just like the success story of these three close friends, the first project of Polimeks in 1995 heralded all of the quality principles that would transform the newly-founded company into a construction giant in years...

The first work was the construction of a pavement. However, it showed all of the remarkable details that were needed to take the next big step as in all success stories. Just a few years after this first work, we see Polimeks completing a monument that reflects the most important values in the culture of a nation and thus secures a place in its history. In the years that followed, Polimeks completed many giant projects from "class a" hotel constructions to full-fledged hospital projects and from waterway construction to airport projects. It has completed 133 large-scale projects until today. All of these projects were structures with artistic lines, innovative approaches and solutions sometimes characterized by extraordinary features.

Polimeks is a family of 37,000 employees in 6 countries, which is among the top contractors of not only Turkey but also the world and itcontinues growing and constructing projects that print their mark on the life.
