Coriant Continues to Grow Under New Leadership

 

Most people are well aware that technology is advancing at a rapid pace. But people often forget that this wouldn’t be the case if the tech companies themselves weren’t also moving just as fast. A company might have all the right pieces in place for a breakthrough. But if the employees and executives within the company are unable to work together at optimum efficiency than they’ll be beaten to the market. And one of the biggest factors there is how well the company’s executives are able to take employee reports and turn them into workable plans for the future. This is one of the reasons why a new CEO at a large tech company is such big news. And it’s why so many eyes are currently on a company called Coriant.

Coriant has a new CEO by the name of Shaygan Kheradpir. And one of the most interesting things about this decision is how well he fits into the position. He brings everything required for a successful company to the table. One of the most important things is the simple fact that he has a wide variety of experience within the industry. The tech sector has some important differences when compared with other fields. And this often comes down to the fact that tech companies aren’t nearly as specialized. A successful tech company needs to be able to expand on any of the multiple components which form the base of their products. And many of these components will be different enough that planning and discussions between teams of people working on them can be difficult.

However, a good leader with a strong background in multiple fields in the tech sector can properly manage the various teams which make up a company. Kheradpir has worked in such diverse areas as GTE, Verizon and even Barclays. This is an ideal match for a company like Coriant which has a broad focus on multiple different technologies. One can expect someone with Kheradpir’s background to be able to easily manage and interact with the various divisions within Coriant.

Another important aspect of Kheradpir’s appointment as CEO is how it happened. There’s often cause for concern about how well someone might fit into the executive atmosphere of a company. It’s obviously quite important for a CEO to be able to fit in with the existing power structure of a company. In Kheradpir’s case, this has already been proven. During his time as Operating Executive to Marlin Equity Partners he worked with the senior executives within Coriant. The fact that they recognized Kheradpir’s skill and talent is all the proof one needs that he’ll be a great match for Coriant.
