Two of the most popular terms in the tech industry are convergence and synergy. And this is often one of the best ways to predict how well a company will do in the future. When they show signs of excellence in either trait, or preferably both, they’ll typically be primed for some major innovations. This is why a lot of eyes are currently on a company called Coriant.
The company itself is heavily involved with multiple compatible technologies. This includes voice, data and mobile networks. One of the biggest trends in the past few years is the convergence of these technologies into a single whole. As such Coriant is perfectly situated to take advantage of these powerful trends. But one of the most signficiant aspects of convergence and synergistic processes can be found by examining the new CEO, Shaygan Kheradpir.
Much like Coriant itself, Shaygan Kheradpir brings a lot of different but compatible skills to the table. He’s had over 28 years of executive experience in the technology center. Some of the highlights of this period include time at GTE and Verizon Communications. Again, much of what makes this especially relevant is how all of the various pieces come together. He has a vast amount of technical experience in everything which Coriant is focusing on. This is in direct contrast to many executives who take on a leadership position while not having a strong grasp of the technical nature of their company.
But what makes Shaygan Kheradpir a true synergistic powerhouse is the fact that he combines a strong technical background with strong leadership skills. And even more importantly much of that leadership has been within the technical sphere. Engineers, and especially the most talented ones, tend to have a unique way of looking at the world. Executives who hope to properly lead them need to be able to understand their outlook. Shaygan Kheradpir has the ability to act as a bridge between those different aspects of the company. And in addition to this his experience with mergers allows him to guide the company as more assets are included within it’s overall sphere of influence. Together, this all points to a bright future for Coriant.
