Curriculum Vitae of Anadolu Agency Chairman of the Board and Director General Serdar Karagoz
 
Born on May 25, 1981, in Sakarya, northwestern Turkey, Serdar Karagoz completed his primary and secondary education in Istanbul. He earned a bachelor's degree in political science at Istanbul Bilgi University and later a master's in human rights law at the same school.
 
After joining Turkuaz Media Group as a manager trainee in 2008, over time, Karagoz tackled responsibilities in all the departments within the group. In 2010, Karagoz started a master's degree program in media studies at the New School in New York City and began work at the New York Times' Syndication Department.
 
In 2012-2014, Karagoz became a diplomatic correspondent for Turkish news channel A Haber and contributed columns on US affairs to Turkish newspaper Sabah. At the same time, he launched the web portal usabah.com, which took the pulse of US news for a Turkish audience. Upon returning to Turkey, Karagoz served as foreign news editor at Sabah and also began preparations to establish Sabah's English-language paper, called Daily Sabah. In February 2014, he was named the founding editor-in-chief of Daily Sabah.
 
After being assigned to national news channel TRT in October 2018, Serdar Karagoz was appointed editor-in-chief of TRT International News Channels. He contributed substantially to TRT's success in the global media arena by adding Arabic, German, Russian, and Balkan language services to the broadcast stream. Since April 7, 2021, Karagoz has continued his career at the helm of Turkey's global newswire as Anadolu Agency's chairman and director general.
