Coriant hired Shaygan Kheradpir in September 2015 to serve as their chief executive officer. Mr. Pat DiPietro used to be the CEO at Coriant, but stepped down for Shaygan Kheradpir to assume his role because of the great things that Mr. Kheradpir could make happen and has made happen in the past.
Mr. Kheradpir has served on the Cornell University Engineering Council and the US National Institute of Standards and Technology advisory board, not to mention working for Barclays and Verizon Communications in executive capacities. Shaygan Kheradpir has a profound resume, which all started when he first went to college in the United States after leaving his home country of Iran to attend Cornell University. Mr. Shaygan Kheradpir majored in electrical engineering, a degree he earned three times, all the way up to a doctorate.

Shaygan Kheradpir is one of the best executives of his kind.
