The technology company Coriant has grown by a huge amount since it was spun out of Siemens in 2013 under the leadership of CEO Pat DiPietro. The problem Coriant has always faced is the fact DiPietro has always been earmarked to return to his role with the parent company of Marlin Equity Partners; the planned return to Marlin of DiPietro has left a vacant leadership position within Coriant that the parent company has determined will be filled by Shaygan Kheradpir. The well known and respected technology executive has spent a large amount of the last 30 years in the technology industry, but also brings many well rounded business skills to the company.
Despite the strong skills Kheradpir brings in terms of developing new technologies he also provides a strong level of skill as a business executive. Kheradpir is a popular figure in many industries where he brought both new technologies, and a new way of doing business in well established areas of business. One of the major areas of success for Kheradpir in his past was his time as the main technology executive at the financial giant Barclay’s.
The period spent at Barclay’s allowed Shaygan Kheradpir to develop a global business view after he was charged with the task of producing a network linking the offices of the corporation across the world. Not only did Kheradpir achieve this with amazing levels of success he also created one of the first digital bill paying and funds transfer programs that has become the benchmark for those that have followed.
Pat DiPietro may be stepping aside from his day to day involvement with Coriant, but he will remain an important figure at the company with a place on the board. Marlin Equity Partners is hoping the appointment of Shaygan Kheradpir will bring new levels of success and higher profits to the brand they established just three years ago.
