The chances of a newly formed company breaking into the technology field is usually seen as very slim, particularly in those areas of networking that are dominated by the traditional large companies of the industry. Coriant is a company that is bucking this trend by embarking on a period of sustained growth that has been achieved at a relatively fast level. After only being formed as an independent company in 2013 the company has gone from strength to strength in recent years under former CEO Pat DiPietro.
Towards the end of 2015 it was announced DiPietro was standing aside as the CEO to return to his original role with parent company Marlin Equity Partners. In his place as the CEO comes Shaygan Kheradpir, a technology expert who has been working in various fields of the industry for a number of years. Kheradpir has built up a reputation as an astute developer of the latest technologies in the telecommunications, and business field. Alongside these developments the former Verizon executive has also developed a number of business approaches that have since become industry norms.
The skills of Shaygan Kheradpir have also been developed outside the telecommunications industry after joining the Barclays financial group. Kheradpir was a trail blazer for the use of information technology in the financial industry, and used his skills to create extensive networks linking all Barclays offices around the world to a single system.
Shaygan Kheradpir has not entered his new role as the CEO of Coriant without conducting his own review of the company; in fact, Kheradpir has been working with executives from the company to conduct a review of the business that will aid his takeover as CEO. Coriant has gained a foothold in the networking industry by using the technologies of the Siemens company it used to be part of; Shaygan Kheradpir has the opportunity to push the company into a new era by using his skills as a developer of new technologies for the Coriant company.
