Before Kheradpir’s rapid ascension of corporate America he grew up in Iran. Upon graduation high school the future business executive went to the United States to further his education. Kheradpir obtained a bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degree in electrical engineering from Cornell University. Kheradpir’s first job after graduating from Cornell was with GTE Laboratories in 1987. Here he was responsible for network routing, management, and control. It did not take long until the young Shaygan Kheradpir of fiercetelecom began to develop a strong reputation for himself within the company. Leadership took notice and quickly promoted him through the ranks to become the chief information officer of GTE Corporation. He was well-known for his ability to continually deliver new products on schedule. He stayed in this role until 2000, when GTE merged with Bell Atlantic to form what is now known as Verizon. Following the merger Kheradpir began serving as president of Verizon’s e-business division. A short while later he was promoted to the companies CIO/CTO and set forth a pace of rapid development for the company. Under his leadership the growth of new products and processes began to explode. Kheradpir encouraged this development of new products through the creation teams tasked with coming up with ideas on lightreading. These teams were to test their products through a rapid 30-day prototype cycle which could quickly determine the value of new ideas. Thanks to these new systems Verizon developed its fiber optic video initiative FiOS, iobi, and Verizon One. His teams were also responsible for reengineering many outdated systems as well as integrating information previously used at GTE, Bell Atlantic, and NYNEX. Even with all of the new developments taking place Kheradpir also managed to aggressively cut costs. In an industry where the standard amount to spend on IT was 6% Kheradpir managed to obtain 4%. He outsourced contract programming to other countries, cut IT staff by 20%, and significantly cut vendor costs through repeated negotiations. After some time with Verizon it was time for a change. The executive moved over to Barclay’s where he originally served as COO of the Global Retail & Business Bank. Here he developed Pingit a mobile payment software. Following his success Kheradpir was eventually promoted to Chief Operations and Technology Officer where he became the first technology executive on the excutive team at Barclay’s. Then in 2014 with Juniper Networks came Kheradpir’s first stint as a CEO. Here he oversaw a massive restructuring of a company which turned out very well. The restructuring efforts saved the company $160 million and also sought to return over $3 billion to its shareholders through buybacks and dividends. Activist investors from Elliot Management who had pressured this restructuring were very satisfied with its outcome. All of these past experiences have led Kheradpir to his current role as CEO of Coriant, an optical-networking vendor where he is CEO. Due to his breadth of experience and track record of success it can only be a matter of time until something truly special happens with this company.
