With all these factors in place, there is a need for a capable and competent leader to steer the entire entity towards achieving its objectives. The scarcity of experienced, competent and performing leaders makes individuals like Shaygan Kheradpir be in high demand by companies looking for reliable executives. Consequently, Coriant opted for Kheradpir to take the positions of both Chief Executive Officer as well as Chairman of the Board in September last year.
Fiercetelecom released a press report citing that the able Shaygan had moved to Coriant.
