Born in Cyprus, Dervis left to study in the USA at the age of 18. After completing an undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering, he moved to London to sharpen his data analytics skills through a master’s degree in Business & Data Analytics. Having always had a desire to work in the sports industry, Dervis joined Two Circles in October 2016.
Basketball has always been Dervis’s passion having played competitively at youth levels for his home country, Cyprus. A huge Fenerbahce fan (of both the football and basketball teams), he makes sure that he never misses a game. Whilst studying in the USA he went to as many sports games as he could and whilst in Berlin last year met his idol, Zeljko Obradovic, current coach at Fenerbahce and the most successful coach in European basketball history.
