The telecommunications industry seems to have always been dominated by the same few companies who have built a traditionally strong reputation. However, in 2013 the industry saw a major shift with the arrival of Coriant in the industry that will place a challenge upon the traditional giants of the industry. In just over two years the company has made a deep impact on the telecommunications industry in the form of clients being found in around 100 countries, and an increase in employees to over 3,000.
Shaygan Kheradpir will now be responsible for providing the leadership the company hopes will provide a new era in the development of wireless communications and optical networking. Kheradpir takes the place of former CEO Pat DiPietro, who returns to his former role within the parent Marlin Equity Partners company. Kheradpir has been working alongside the executives at Marlin and Coriant for the majority of 2015 in a bid to conduct a complete review of the company, which will soon see the Cornell University graduate look to make major changes to increase the profits of the company.
Kheradpir has worked his magic as a technology and business executive in the past, which includes his skills as a business leader being shown during his time working with Verizon. Despite being the largest wireless communications company in the U.S., Kheradpir managed to lower the costs of their IT department by using innovative techniques. The skills he developed as a business leader has seen Kheradpir embark on a career as an executive at financial and technology companies throughout the world.
Coriant are hoping the profitability of the company can be improved under Kheradpir; the company not only hopes the new CEO can create a new era of higher profits, but also hopes the company will develop new technologies in a reduced amount of time. Shaygan Kheradpir has already begun working on improvements for the company, which will be designed to allow the company the opportunity to break the monopoly of the best known companies in the communications industry.
