Koray Edemen, President & Founder

Keytours Vacations founder Koray Edemen is a long-time travel industry veteran. A native of Ankara, Turkey, Mr. Edemen got his start in travel working as a travel director and licensed guide in Istanbul and Cappadocia while studying for his B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science. At the age of 22, he established his first company, serving American military personnel and diplomats’ travel needs in Turkey and neighboring countries. In 1993, Mr. Edemen moved to the United States where he co-founded Keytours Vacations, which quickly became the premier tour operator to Europe and the Mediterranean.

In the past 26 years, Mr. Edemen has expanded his work in a variety of travel-related investments, including transportation companies, hotel investment, and management, as well as numerous online travel companies. Despite these many projects, maintains a hands-on approach to his business: he was central to the oversight and implementation of his company’s software development and personally wrote the initial codes.

Now a major stockholder of six different companies in the travel industry, Mr. Edemen is a well-known and sought-after travel industry speaker.
