Shaygan Kheradpir Aims For Success With Coriant
The world of optical networks is largely dominated by many of the traditionally powerful companies found within the world of optical networking; however, the major companies have recently been joined by newcomer Coriant who have developed a major position in the industry since being established in 2013. The Coriant brand has developed a strong following amongst the major companies of the world who are seeking the best opportunities in providing their customers with the highest quality talk, text and data services.
The success of Coriant comes after the company was spun out of the optical networking department of Nokia Siemens, which had found success in the industry before being purchased by Marlin Equity. In a bid to cement its position within the industry Coriant has recently been making some changes at boardroom level, which have included appointing Shaygan Kheradpir as the CEO. Kheradpir has developed his skills as both a developer of technology and as a savvy businessperson over the last few years through his executive roles with companies as diverse as Verizon and Barclays. In his career Shaygan Kheradpir has worked diligently to make sure the businesses he has worked for have achieved success across a wide range of areas.
As a technology based executive Shaygan Kheradpir developed many of the strategies used across the industry to make sure research and development are completed under budget and on time. At GTE Labs Kheradpir struck upon the idea of developing small teams of technology experts who would work for 30 days on a project before reporting their findings. After moving on to Barclays Shaygan Kheradpir became a key member of the board at the financial giant, which saw him develop a system of accepting payments from customers open to locations around the world.
Kheradpir is looking for a wide range of ways to assist in developing the future of Coriant, which has included the completion of a wide ranging review of the company to identify areas needing attention. This review completed by Kheradpir with the assistance of former Coriant CEO Pat DiPietro has allowed a better understanding of the company and the areas the executive will focus open in his forthcoming days with Coriant.
