A company needs to have strong leadership in order to thrive and survive. This is especially the case when it comes to a new company. Without the assistance of a strong CEO, a new business may find it difficult to emerge in the industry. The tech industry is a robust and yet very full sector, so a CEO who understands the sector and is able to navigate it is a must. Coriant is a new player in terms of going at it alone. It spun off from Siemens, a major tech player out of Munich, Germans. That is why the company turned to Shaygan Kheradpir in order to help lead it into profitability and to be a major player in the industry. The company could not have selected a better CEO as he is one of the most sought after individuals in the industry.
Shaygan Kheradpir has a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Cornell University, so he has the educational background to prop him up. After graduating college he went on to work at GTE. He held an executive position in GTE before it merged with another company to form Verizon. While with Verizon, he spearheaded many important projects, including the development of DVR and the creation of the fiber optics Internet connection FiOS. Eventually, he moved on to hold a board of directors position at Barclays. He became the very best individual with an electrical engineering tech background to sit on the board of directors within the financial giant’s inner circle.
With his ability to work in both the tech field and the financial field, he proved to be an extremely viable candidate to run a company. This occurred when he took over Juniper Networks. While with the company, he helped develop several new initiatives while also cut the cost of production. This pushed the business into newly profitable numbers it had never seen before. Now, Shaygan Kheradpir has moved on to take the helm of Coriant.
Coriant saw the capability of Shaygan Kheradpir and decided it wanted to run the business with him as its lead. He now stands as the CEO of the company and is able to do everything in his power to make it in the industry.
