His grandfather Ilyas Kilic was a politician of the Republican People's Party(CHP), who served five consecutive times as MP between 1961 and 1980. His father Sinan Kilic served as a private physician of Recep Tayyip Erdogan during his office time as the Mayor of Istanbul in the 1990s.

He studied Political Science at University of Hertfordshire in the United Kingdom. He attended further studies in Economy of Europe.

Cagatay Kilic is married to Eda Kilic, and they have two daughters, Ela and Ece.

He worked in the purchasing department of Sabanci Holding's Universal Trading Company in the UK. Returned to Turkey, he was appointed advisor in the headquarters of the Justice and Development Party (AKP) in 2003.

Later, Cagatay Kilic served as advisor and assistant principal clerk of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

Kilic entered active politics running for a seat in the Grand National Assembly of Turkey in the 2011 general election, and was elected as an MP of Samsun Province from the AKP. He was appointed a member of the Turkish group at the NATO Parliamentary Assembly.

At the age of 37, he became the youngest member of the current cabinet.
