Hi. My name is Serpil Keşen, and I am Service Manager for Hitachi Energy Grid Integration in Istanbul, Türkiye.
As a young girl, I was fascinated by machines and technology, how things are made, how they work, and how they can be fixed. I remember observing the mechanic repair our broken refrigerator and the electricians wiring up my father’s new house.
Now I lead a nine-person team that supports customers in all of Türkiye with high-voltage systems, including HV substations and Flexible Alternating Current Transmission (FACTS) systems.
"It was not easy for me to fit into this world, but I didn’t give up on proving that women can succeed in jobs where men make up most of the workforce… I'm happy working at Hitachi Energy, an employer that loves diversity and good values and provides technical support, training, and continuous improvement possibilities and development for individuals"
