Leo Clubs in Istanbul, sponsored by Montblanc and Rotap Saat, are leadership schools where young people aged from 18 to 30 develop their character and help the community, in true Lions spirit. The Management Board of the clubs changes every year, and this year the new Board began work on Monday 2 July, after a ceremony held at the romantic boutique hotel, Beylerbeyi Bosphorus Palace Hotel. 2011-2012 chairman Caner Duru handed over to Efe Acar, in office for 2012-2013, in the presence of many celebrities, artists, businesspeople and politicians.

The Leos, leaders of the future, are socially engaged, and they are currently working on helping disabled citizens, producing and promoting a series of videos related to their activities in this area.
During the evening, Bihter Koray AyyÄ±ldÄ±z received a plaque for the contributions made by Rotap and Montblanc to the Leo 118 E Management Cadre.
