What to Know About Shaygan Kheradpir

Posted on 27 September, 2015  in CEO Profiles

I am Shaygan Kheradpir a learned person, and my academic certificates are proof of this. I have a bachelors, masters and Ph.D. in electrical engineering. I was at Cornell University, and I majored in control systems. In my lifetime, I have used my knowledge to come up with mission-driven teams that can drive change that is quite important to investors, customers, employees and the community at large.

I have been able to do this by crossing through various industry segments in the whole world. By doing so, I have been capable of coming up with connections and innovations at the boundaries of traditional disciplines that have become a success. Recently, I was appointed the Chief Executive Officer of Juniper Networks.

Juniper Networks is a leading company in the sector of networking in Silicon Valley. Before this appointment, I used to work for the Barclays group. I held the post of chief operations and technology officer. This global retail bank has its headquarters in London, and I joined it in 2011 as a chief operating officer for that region.

However, I advanced to become the chief operations and technology officer for the whole bank worldwide across investment, retail, corporate, business, wealth and cards banking. During my time, I became known for my major contribution when it comes to cultural change. These is what enabled the Barclays bank change along the lines of the industrialization procedures of the 21st century.

Some of these processes include front-to-back digitization using industrialized controls and product innovation that are essential to the lives of human beings. Some of these innovations include Pingit and Cloudit. I began my career at GTE Labs situated in Boston. I took up the responsibilities of network routing, management, and control.

After some time, I climbed the ladder of success and became the head of software systems lab. I put my all in this Lab to build a top-class organization, and my efforts were rewarded since the organization developed to become the country’s first national network management platform for GTE.

The platform integrated infrastructure, transmission and switching and it was known as TONICS (Telephone Operations Network Integrated Control System). GTE was now able to transform its network business into a highly effective and efficient consolidated network operations for the company using the systems innovations I came up with. I was later moved to Dallas where the headquarters of GTE are situated.
