Technology company Coriant has been making waves over recent years since the business was established out of various departments within the Seimens organization. Since the establishment of the company control has been placed in the hands of Marlin Equity Partners executive Pat DiPietro, who has now stood down from his roles as CEO and Chairman to return to Marlin in a senior management position. Shaygan Kheradpir will step into the roles of CEO and Chairman in a bod to continue the growth of the company which now supplies networking services to clients in more than 100 countries, according to Fierce Telecom.
The appointment of Shaygan Kheradpir is not a major surprise for one of the fastest growing companies in the technology industry. Kheradpir has been working in the technology industry since his graduation from Cornell University, and has achieved many amazing feats that have now become the norms of the industry. In his early career Kheradpir specialized in the wireless technology industry, which saw him reach executive level at both GTE Labs and Verizon.
Verizon also saw the all around business skills of Shaygan Kheradpir come to the fore as he looked to aid the company in becoming more profitable than ever before. The technology skills Kheradpir developed saw him entrusted with a complete revamp of the information technology side of the company. Lowering costs at Verizon to record levels attracted financial giant Barclays to the skills of Kheradpir and saw him accept a position as the first technology executive on the board of the globally recognized banking company.
As with every position Shaygan Kheradpir has accepted during his career he has not entered the Coriant company in a light-hearted way, instead choosing to conduct a complete review of the company before taking up his latest leadership role. More than 1,800 patents are held by Coriant as the company has embarked upon a high level of growth in recent years; the skills of Shaygan Kheradpir as a technology innovator and businessperson will combine to create an environment of success for Coriant to enjoy. The skills as a technology innovator will be of great importance for Coriant as they look to make sure they remain at the head of an industry traditionally dominated by giants like Cisco. Rolling out the latest technologies in 4G and 5G data processing will be one of the top areas of interest for Coriant executives to explore in the coming years. Shaygan Kheradpir has already remarked on his admiration for the growth of Coriant, and the advances already made in the growth of data center and Cloud infrastructure technologies.
