Sabancı is steering her family’s $17.6 billion business through especially challenging and uncertain times in Turkey. The conglomerate, with a group of companies spanning the financial, industrial, retail and energy sectors, is the one of the largest in a country beset by terrorist attacks, the region’s refugee crisis and a failed coup this year. Even so, the holding company has some momentum: its fast-growing power business (half of which comes from renewable sources) helped revenues and profits climb a respective 9% and 8% in local currency in 2015. Sabancı, who founded a university in her family’s name in 1994, remains an active philanthropist and advocate for women’s development in her country and around the world.
