Principals

Meet the three individuals behind the company and its record-making trajectory.

Bruno Pauli

Co-CEO and Founder

After a demanding apprenticeship in the construction industry was brought to a halt by a serious accident, Bruno began his career in telephone marketing at Microsoft, where he soon proceeded to successful stints in License Compliance (anti-piracy) and Software Asset Management (SAM) project management. Five years later, Bruno went on to manage Switzerland and Austria for BDM Services, one of Microsoft’s largest partners. Only a few years later - and after having worked with Co-CEO and Founder, Bahadir Durak, at Microsoft License Compliance - Bruno began to develop the idea of Octopus Cloud. Bruno and his wife, Kim, are parents to four-year-old twins, Giuliano and Omar. In the few spare minutes he squeezes out of each week, he finds balance while lifting weights and sweating at the neighborhood gym.

Bahadir Durak

Co-CEO and Founder

Bahadir worked in telemarketing at Microsoft Switzerland during his electrical engineering studies at the ETH in Zurich. He gradually transferred to the company’s Anti-Piracy and Microsoft License Compliance department (where he met and formed a successful alliance with Bruno Pauli), from which he led multiple projects in Microsoft’s service provider and Cloud services division, eventually becoming Business Development Manager. Before founding Octopus Cloud with Bruno, Bahadir last worked as an Engagement Manager on SAM projects at GSPC. Bahadir and his wife, Leonie, have two children as well: three-year-old, Nilay, and one-year-old, Naim. Though he clearly has no time for hobbies, Bahadir is nevertheless a fierce fan of football in general, and Istanbul’s team Fenerbahce, in particular.

Cihan Gökgöz

CIO and Founder

Before he became a part of Octopus Cloud, Cihan worked for different startups and big companies. Strong with his 15 years of experience in the IT industry in different positions, he is able to transform simple ideas into great business cases and user experiences. Though he never worked for Microsoft and never was involved in SAM projects before, Cihan was quickly able to transform the business idea of his two partners into a great product - The Octopus Cloud SPLA Manager. Cihan is passionate about design, cutting edge technologies and start-ups. He and his wife, Sara, are the parents of one-year-old, Omar. When time permits, this design and cutting-edge technology aficionado ekes out a quick game of ping pong or basketball and maybe even a barbecue for family and friends.

For Press

Unser Vorschlag ist, dass wir für News & For Press eine eigen Seite machen, wo beide Inhaltsbereiche abgebildet sind. Wie ein “Social Newsroom” - das kann man in Wordpress schick mit unterschiedlichen Kategorien lösen.
Diese Seite würden wir auch auf die Navigationsebene 1 setzen und “MEDIA” nennen.
Als Presseagentur für Europa könntet Ihr achtQuark GmbH, München nennen, für die USA HCL.
