Founder ofTurkish Industry and Business Association

Mehmet Nejat Ferit Eczacıbaşı was a chemist, industrialist, entrepreneur and triple Turkish Bilderberger, a second-generation member of the Eczacıbaşı family.

He was the founder of Eczacıbaşı, a prominent Turkish industrial group with investments in pharmaceuticals, personal care products, consumer products, building products and financial services. He was a member of the Board of Directors of the Turkish Scientific and Technical Research Institute in the 1970s. He was a principal founding member of the Turkish Industrialists' and Businessmen's Association.

From his study days in Berlin and Chicago he had a wide range of contacts abroad, and he attended the 1962,1963 and 1965 Bilderberg conferences.

Early Life

Nejat Eczacıbaşı completed his primary and secondary education in İzmir. After finishing the high school at Robert College in Istanbul, he went on to study in chemistry at Heidelberg University. He made then his master's degree at Chicago University and his doctorate in 1937 at Berlin University.[1] Nejat F. Eczacıbaşı conducted post-doctoral scientific works on hormones and vitamins at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in Germany, where he was assistant of Professor Adolf Butenandt (who had close ties to the SS and the government) until 1939.[2] It is of some interest that the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute at the time was the world leader in eugenics and similar subjects.

Career

In 1941, Eczacıbaşı started his own pharmaceutical company producing vitamin supplements. A production facility for pharmaceuticals was opened in Istanbul as early as 1952.

Between 1950 and 1990, he oversaw the expansion of the Eczacıbaşı Group's activities from pharmaceuticals to building materials, tissue paper, personal health care, capital markets, foreign trade and information technology. He became a leading industrialist in branches such as pharmaceuticals, personal care products, consumer products, building products and financial services.[1]

In addition to contributing to the development of Turkish industry, Eczacıbaşı sought to promote and assist the development of his country's civil society. His activities in this area included the establishment of educational institutions, professional business organisations, research institutes, cultural foundations and scholarship funds.

In 1954, he helped to found the Istanbul University's Institute of Business Administration, and the Turkish Management Association. In 1961, he established the Economic and Social Studies Conference Board, which would later become the Turkish Economic and Social Studies Foundation, one of the country's first strategic research institutes.

Eczacıbaşı was the first president of the Turkish Educational Foundation, established in 1966 to provide scholarships for university and graduate students. He was also a member of the Middle East Technical University's Board of Trustees during the 1960s and a member of the Board of Directors of the Turkish Scientific and Technical Research Institute in the 1970s. He was a principal founding member of the Turkish Industrialists' and Businessmen's Association.

Nejat Eczacıbaşı co-founded the Art and Culture Foundation in Istanbul in 1973, which has hosted various cultural events during the Istanbul Festival every year since then. He established the Nejat Eczacıbaşı Foundation in 1978.
