The Face of Turkish Hospitality in New York

Image The Most Influential Turkish-American Women #15 - Behind every great establishment is a great leader. Marmara Park Avenue, opening in Manhattan’s NoMad neighborhood as the U.S. flagship of The Marmara Collection, is no exception. Leading the charge as the property’s General Manager is seasoned professional Nur Ercan-Magden, an expert with more than 25 years of experience who can divulge all the tips, tricks and scoops of the hotel industry.
Nur began her career in hospitality in 1990 after graduating college and joined the Marmara family. In 2003, Nur moved to the United States and took on the responsibilities of sales and marketing for Marmara Manhattan, and started her journey in NYC. Now Nur currently serves as the General Manager for Marmara Park Avenue and Marmara Manhattan. Nur is a dynamic personality with much to offer – your conversations will be far from boring!

The Marmara Manhattan, which had initially been opened in 1989 as a condo, has been providing extended stay services since 1998. Magden started her career 25 years ago a representative at the Marmara Hotel in Taksim, Istanbul and her job then was a temporary position for three weeks.

As the three-week long position turned into a five-year long work experience, Magden’s next stop in her career was with Kiska, a partner firm of the Marmara Group with headquarters in Ankara.  She was transferred to Kiska in order to develop new projects in the Southeastern provinces of Turkey under the framework of the Southeastern Anatolian Project and she opened the first ancient hotel of Urfa, Edassa, as the General Director.  She was then assigned to open the Marmara Bodrum.

Magden came to the US in 2000 and for some time she did research to seek possible job opportunities.  In 2003, she took over the responsibility of marketing and sales for Marmara Manhattan in North and South America.  In 2008 she began her position as the general director.
