If there’s anything that can be assured when dealing with a business, no matter how successful, it’s always a change at any given position. Coriant has seen a personnel change of their own.
Recently Coriant, a company that serves as a transportation vendor, decided to name Shaygan Kheradpir as the newest CEO. Kheradpir is known for becoming the CEO of Juniper Networks, prior to this newest selection for Coriant, while Pat DiPietro, will now become the vice chairman of the company and also serve as the operating partner behind Marlin Equity Partners. Marlin Equity Partners, for those who are not aware, is the name of a private equity company that was responsible for creating Coriant in the first place. The move involved merging small facets of Nokia, Tellabs and Sycamore Networks’ optical units into one more efficient company. Kheradpir is known for having many years of leadership in technology, one of the factors leading up to him being selected for CEO. According to other sources, he has also been working with senior management in order to get more quickly accustomed to the role.
Speaking of which, Shaygan Kheradpir, born December 19, 1960 in London, United Kingdom, started out by spending much of his youth living in Iran. After completing high school Kheradpir moved to the United States and attended Cornell University, earning his bachelor’s, masters, and doctorate degrees in the field of electrical engineering. After his college career, Kheradpir took a job at GTE Laboratories, a telephone company and earned the role of chief information officer after putting in hard work working as a network manager.
As of 2000, GTE merged with Bell Atlantic to form Verizon Communications. While there he was the president of an e-business division and then eventually graduated to the role of the first CIO. He was involved in the completion of several tasks, creating small teams to develop new product ideas for the company being one of them. One of his accomplishments made was a new idea called “iobi,” which was an electronic application made for managing address books and caller ID. Between this and many other different ideas, Kheradpir was also successful at managing Verizon’s total budget and getting it cut down to four percent. He also managed to reduce the number of information technology staff that was necessary to run the company and even the amount of money spent on technology vendors.
As anyone can testify to, success depends a lot on education. If someone is educated, he is more likely to succeed. This is true no matter what industry one steps in. Even the more simple jobs require a little bit of education and practice in order for one to succeed. Sam Tabar himself is very educated in the fields that he is successful in. He has studied law and is a prominent attorney. He is also educated in business and is a capital strategist. He understands what business plans work and what will fail. For this reason, he wants to make sure that each business that he thinks about investing in has a solid business plan.
His career consists of plenty of different businesses. He has worked many businesses as an Associate. He has also risen in ranks at some of the businesses he worked for such as SPARX Group Co./PMA Investment Advisors. He worked as the Managing Director. He was also the Co-Head of Business Development. Later on, he has joined Bank of America Merrill Lynch. He worked in the Asia-Pacific Region. He held a position as the Head of Capital Strategy. Other companies he has joined were Adanac LLC, BVI and Schulte Roth and Zabek LLP as the Director and Senior Executive respectively.
As of right now, he works as an investor and he makes investments on companies that have a lot of promise. He also gives advice on investing. He is very passionate bout making the right investments and wants others that are interested to know the right steps to take for profit. Among the topics he talks about when it comes to investing is what to look for in a company and how much to invest. The most important advice he would give is for one to make sure that he is able to afford the investment that he makes. One should be prepared to lose while coming up with a winning strategy. Investing is one of those activities that are profitable while at the same time tricky.
Sam tabar is also fluent in multiple languages. He can speak, Spanish, Japanese as well as English. This gives him a larger audience to speak to as opposed to the businessmen who only know one language. Audiences of several cultures can learn about his investment strategies and how he uses them to succeed.
Sam Tabar is also very adamant that a business has a good model. A business with some of the best products are still vulnerable to failure with a bad business model. If a business shows that it can handle its money, then it is likely going to have a better chance at success than the business that is sloppy with money management.
That extends to his pointers about what normal investors are doing with their money. You need to spend intelligently if you want to get anywhere in life.
