Coriant has been in the network management business for quite a long time, and their business is based entirely on the sale of media through their networks. Their networks cover a large part of the globe, but the company does not use their networks to their own advantage. That will change as new CEO Shaygan Kheradpir takes the helm of the company. This article explains what Shaygan will do to change Coriant from a background player to the leader in mobile technology sales.
#1: What Will Shaygan Do?
Shaygan Kheradpir is a three-time graduate of Cornell University with degrees in engineering. It is rare for a doctoral-level engineer to find himself in executive management, but Shaygan has a long track record of working in management. He began in design with GTE Labs, and he transitioned to Verizon where he is responsible for most of their groundbreaking phones. Shaygan will help Coriant make its own products.
#2: Shaygan Is Relevant
Shaygan Kheradpir has worked in the highest levels of Verizon, Barclays and Juniper Networks. He understands the business side of technology better than most, and he willing to bring his expertise to a company that needs both technical and business experience in the CEO’s chair. Coriant will only progress if they are able to produce their own devices, begin a new service and do so with as little overhead as possible.
#3: Coriant Wants To Compete Right Away
Coriant’s desire to compete with the largest providers in the world has pushed it to move quickly with its plans. Shaygan was able to create new device prototypes at Verizon in 30 days, and he hopes to speed up production within Coriant as their company changes to a provider. The new network from Coriant will have the best phones, the best coverage and a company capable of backing it effectively.
Shaygan Kheradpir came to Coriant as the CEO at a time when the company needed a technical expert. Shaygan’s doctorate in engineering more than qualifies him to help with production, and his business experience makes him ready to lead the company into the future.
