Shaygan Kheradpir Returns To The Big Time With Coriant

Posted on 30 November, 2015  in Business Leaders, CEO Profiles

The optical systems vendor Coriant has recently announced the appointment of Shaygan Kheradpir as CEO in a bid to push the newly formed company towards a successful future. Coriant was created from a number of businesses and departments of Nokia, which was spun out of the communications giant in a bid to push forward the popularity of the company with Internet providers. The appointment of Kheradpir is seen as something of a coup for Coriant when the history of the new CEO is examined, largely because of the success he achieved at Verizon and Barclays in creating new products and lowering costs.

Shaygan Kheradpir first found business success as the head of research and development at GTE Labs and Verizon after the two companies merged. Kheradpir made a name for himself in the telecommunications industry for his innovations in the industry and for the stance he took on maintaining low costs. The new CEO of Coriant began his career by looking at the best ways of developing new products, which include creating small dedicated teams that were responsible for individual pieces of products that were given a 30 day deadline for breakthroughs to be made. The success of this strategy led to it becoming the industry standard for embarking on new technology research.

There is much more to Shaygan Kheradpir than simply his skills in research and development, but also include a large level of business acumen that has led him on a successful career. Kheradpir saw his career take him to Barclays, the international financial giant that was looking to develop its technology base in the early years of the 21st century. Many of the Online payment methods we all now take for granted were developed by Kheradpir as a board member at the financial corporation.

Coriant is looking to develop its own position within the Internet communications industry and is hoping Shaygan Kheradpir can lead them to a successful future with his wide range of skills in this area of business. The company has been working with Kheradpir for a number of months in a bid to conduct a strategic review of the business as a whole. The ability to develop products quickly and on budget is something that Coriant hopes Shaygan Kheradpir will be able to bring to its range of products within the business model he implements in the coming months and years.
