Shaygan Kheradpir, a long-time business executive and technological expert, has recently been appointed as the chief executive officer of Coriant. The sole financier of Coriant, Marlin Equity Partners, was led by Shaygan Kheradpir. The board of directors at both Coriant and Marlin Equity Partners decided that it would be best for Mr. Kheradpir to take over the head position at the company to help it grow to its fullest potential.
Pat DiPietro is the former chief executive officer of Coriant, who actually performed very well at his job but Mr. Kheradpir has experienced such a high degree of success with other technological companies, the executives felt that it would be best for Shaygan Kheradpir to run the company.
Shaygan Kheradpir is originally from London, grew up in Iran, and then moved to the United States of America to earn a college education at Cornell University. In the 1980s, when Mr. Kheradpir went to school, the three degrees that Mr. Kheradpir earned meant much more than they do today. With the vast amounts of experience that Mr. Shaygan Kheradpir has had in college, he was able to transition successfully into the workplace. He started working for GTE Labs, then decided to stay with the company when it was merged into Verizon Communications.
Verizon Communications was a demanding job for Shaygan Kheradpir, but it was the first place where he was able to prove himself as one of the leading business and technology executives in the entire world. Shaygan Kheradpir has since been employed by Juniper Networks and Barclays, two large companies involved with technology improvements advanced by Mr. Kheradpir himself.
Coriant made a great decision by hiring on Shaygan Kheradpir as the chief executive officer of the company. As technology continues to improve at a very, very fast rate, it takes a very special leader of a company that is able to deal with adversity and being able to develop new types of technology or networking systems that other companies cannot compete with in order to succeed. Coriant is expected to continue to grow in size thanks to Shaygan Kheradpir and all he has done for Coriant already in his short tenure with the technology giant.
