On June 13, 2006, the Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany was awarded to Dr.Eng. M. C. Sezen, the Managing Director and owner of the Paninkret Chem.-Pharm. Vertriebsges. mbH. This decoration was presented to him by the German Ambassador in Ankara, Dr Eckhart Cuntz, on behalf of the President of the Federal Republic of Germany, Dr Horst Köhler. The Ambassador not only emphasized Dr Sezen’s work in the industry but also his work as President of the ALKEV Cultural and Educational Foundation and the formation of a primary school. Dr. Cuntz paid tribute to his contributions as follows:
“Not only has Dr Cengiz Sezen been successful in business, through his work in the social field he has also shown commitment to supporting the collaboration between Germany and Turkey for years. Yet, and to demonstrate his vigour, it is not enough to only look at his commitment over the last couple of years since he still fully supports the relations between the two countries.”
