Due to her successful work there, she took over the management of the Turkey desk two and a half years later. Because of her excellent network and proven expertise, Azime was then able to take over and successfully expand the management of a new team for Turkish clients in Liechtenstein at EFG Bank von Ernst AG in the rank of First Vice President in 2019.

Establishing herself in client advisory

In 2008, Azime started in client advisory at Deutsche Bank Privat- und Geschäftskunden AG. As a senior client advisor, she built up her own client base over several years and provided comprehensive support to her clients in their private and business matters. In July 2012, Azime took over as head of the private client team there.

Start of a long banking career

Azime laid the foundation for her later career in August 2001, when she completed an apprenticeship at Sparkasse Hochrhein in Waldshut-Tiengen. With the banking basics she learned there, she then moved to LBS Baden-Württemberg, where she focused on construction financing as a consultant and then established herself as a customer advisor at Citibank. In 2007, she took over the management of a branch of GE Money Bank GmbH due to her profound knowledge.
