The payment processor Total System Services Inc. has hired Bulent Senver as its business development director for Turkey.

During his two and a half decades in the Turkish banking industry, Mr. Senver has been an executive or consultant with more than 20 financial institutions. TSYS, of Columbus, Ga., said that the Turkish card market is the third largest in Europe.

Mr. Senver "has helped achieve many milestones in his respective market, including the first photo credit card, the first soccer club debit card, and the first telephone banking system," Kelley Knutson, TSYS' executive vice president for global services, said in a press release last week.
