The technology and optical networking brand Coriant has recently been undergoing a major company review as it seeks out the best ways of maximizing its profits for the future. Technology industry veteran Shaygan Kheradpir has been at the forefront of the review after being employed by the parent company of Coriant, Marlin Equity Partners, which has resulted in the former Verizon executive taking up the role of CEO with Coriant.
Shaygan Kheradpir initially arrived at Coriant to act as a consultant tasked with the job of finding areas where profits were not being generated to their maximum level. Kheradpir has gained a reputation for being something of an expert in finding areas where costs can be cut and profits improved; this reputation began with his first role as an executive with GTE Labs and Verizon, where the Cornell University graduate found new ways for cutting information technology costs to a level far below those seen as the standard for the industry.
Following the success Shaygan Kheradpir saw at Verizon he made the move to a new industry when he joined the board of the financial giant Barclay’s, becoming the first technology based executive to do so. Shaygan Kheradpir went on to become an important individual in the life of Barclay’s where he was responsible for the development of the Pingit mobile payments software that forms the basis of many similar products offered by other financial institutions.
As the market for optical transmission equipment and software for the mobile voice, text, and data industry continues to grow Coriant has been looking to develop new products in fiber optic cables that will position them even more strongly in the industry.
