The Coriant brand has recently been growing in popularity and levels of respect since it was established in 2013. Coriant was created by Marlin Equity Partners after the investment company bought the optical networking department of Siemens and a series of other technology companies. Despite only being established in 2013 the company has been challenging the established leaders in the wireless communications industry with a move to provide their skills and equipment in more than 100 countries.
Coriant has undergone a restructuring over the last few months of 2015 and into the first months of 2016 with the return of CEO Pat Dipietro to his former role with Marlin. This restructuring has seen the appointment of Shaygan Kheradpir to the position of CEO and DiPietro to a new role on the board of Coriant. Kheradpir is one of the best known names in the wireless communications industry for his work in many different industries.
Shaygan Kheradpir is perhaps best known for his work as a leader with the GTE Labs and Verizon companies over the course of the last 30 years. One of the reasons Kheradpir was appointed to his new role with Coriant is the high level of research and development he is known for completing in all the roles he has taken up in the past. The Cornell University graduate was responsible for introducing the use of small teams and 30 day deadlines for researching the use of new technologies.
Coriant has been at the forefront of introducing many new forms of equipment and software to the communications field. Shaygan Kheradpir has been brought in to make sure the development of the company happens at the right pace and includes the best quality of new technologies possible. Kheradpir has worked in the financial sector for a large portion of his career and has used these skills to complete a thorough review of the work of Coriant; this review has allowed the new CEO to have a head start on the development of Coriant for the future.
