The optical networking specialist Coriant has recently announced the planned movement of CEO Pat DiPietro has taken place with technology industry veteran Shaygan Kheradpir taking up the role of CEO. Kheradpir has a long history in the industry that Coriant states has seen him spend the last 28 years working in various positions and for many different companies at the top of their respective industries; Coriant is one of the newest entrants to the technology and networking industry, but can draw on decades of experience in the Nokia, Tellabs and Sycamore Technologies companies that have been formed into Coriant.
Shaygan Kheradpir is not a man to shy away from a challenge and has shown this throughout his long and distinguished career as an executive specializing in the technology and financial industries. Kheradpir is perhaps best known for taking on the problems facing the financial industry through his role at Barclays where he developed the basis of the mobile payments technology still used today.
Kheradpir looks to maintain his strong links with the communities he has lived and worked in, including a position with Cornell University where he seeks to bring new technologies to the attention of the industry. The technology veteran also seeks to make sure the people of his local community are well served with a strong YMCA for whom he sits on the board.
As Pat DiPietro returns to the Marlin Equity Partners parent company of Coriant the aim is for Kheradpir to use his almost three decades of experience to guide Coriant to greater successes; prior to accepting the role as CEO Shaygan Kheradpir completed a complete review of Coriant in a bid to seek out the best options in taking the company to as successful a future as possible.
