Technology Wiz Shaygan Kheradpir Takes Over As CEO Of Coriant

Published / by thehillsadmin / 1 Comment on Technology Wiz Shaygan Kheradpir Takes Over As CEO Of Coriant

Anyone that has been remotely involved in the technology industry knows Coriant. Coriant holds more than 1,800 patents and has more than 35 years of experience delivering tier 1 networking products and services. When Pat DiPietro announced that he was stepping down as CEO of Coriant to return to Marlin Equity very few people were surprised. Marlin Equity is the firm that cobbled Coriant out of, Sycamore Network Solutions, Nokia Siemens, Tellabs, and Networks Optical Networks. DiPietro named Shaygan Kheradpir as the new CEO of Coriant, and very few insiders were surprised when they heard the news.

Shaygan Kheradpir has been working closely with the management of Coriant for some time, so the team knows Kheradpir and how he operates. He is well known in the technology industry thanks to the role he played at GTE and Verizon. He started his career with GTE after receiving his PH.D. from Cornell University. Shaygan joined Verizon when he left GTE. He was named CIO of Verizon. During his tenure at Verizon, he was instrumental in developing systems that Verizon still uses today. When Shaygan left Verizon, he went to Barclay’s and changed the bank’s entire computer system.

Kheradpir and DiPietro have switched positions. DiPietro is now the managing partner at Marlin Equity and Vice-Chairman of the Board of Coriant. Mr. Kheradpir recently said Coriant has operating centers in the United States, Asia and Europe. The company focuses on electric utilities, fixed line and mobile service providers, large corporations, government agencies, submarine network providers and content providers. Coriant now has 500 clients in more than 100 countries.

Shaygan main strength is his ability to help network operators build resilient, flexible and scalable transport networks. Kheradpir believes he can inject new life into Coriant by going the extra step when it comes to building new systems that can handle the increased traffic patterns and new data growth.

The interesting part of this new change in power is there are really no new players. It seems Marlin Equity and Coriant has shuffled their internal deck and expect to get better results because of the changes. Shaygan Kheradpir has his work cut out for him, but he has a lot of experience on the Coriant management team.

Kyle Bass: Wunderkind or Supervillain?

Published / by thehillsadmin / 1 Comment on Kyle Bass: Wunderkind or Supervillain?

It’s hard to tell whether or not Kyle Bass is trustworthy. In general, financial advice should be taken with a grain of salt. Financial advisers are always privy to information they, by and large, don’t have the resources to act on. As a result, embitterment is always a possibility. A hedge fund manager with knowledge of trends, but the inability to act on them, may give clients advice that isn’t strictly in their best interests. It’s hard to tell with Kyle Bass, because he’s been playing both sides of the fence for a little while, and his Blogspot exposes this sentiment.

Kyle Bass started out on the financial scene with a groundbreaking prediction about America’s market. He predicted the sub-prime lending practices instituted through programs like Frannie Mae and Freddie Mac would lead to economic collapse. In 2008, his predictions were borne out, and Bass was able to leave the financial arena substantially more economically stable than when he went in. As a result, the eyes of the financial world became fixed on Bass, and he began making a variety of media appearances.

His next big prediction had to do with Japan. Bass predicted another economic implosion in Japan, and his prediction was again borne out by reality. Would his luck continue? Well, time will tell; but now Bass has his eyes fixed on China.

Bass believes China has been lending beyond her means. He thinks that the GDP can’t support the loans China has been making, and that other countries’ “aggressive lending” will result in China’s bets falling flat, while successive Asian economies follow like dominoes. Basically: Bass believes that China is making wagers she can’t back up, and it’s going to catch up with the country in the next several years. The “bookies” of other Asian countries have no other income but China, in some cases; and they’ll be aggressive about collections, if that market’s previous history is indicative of anything.

Is Bass correct? Well, he likely is; but what does that mean? Kyle Bass is known to have ties to Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, a well-known Argentinian socialist. But since Kyle Bass is also from Argentina, are his ties to this individual sinister, or benign?

Kyle Bass also managed to pull one over on Big Pharma by creating the organization “The Coalition For Affordable Drugs”. The purpose of this organization is summed up in its title, and it was successful in decreasing the cost of certain medications. The net result was a drop in stock value for the big pharmaceutical corporations, from which Bass was able to reap substantial profit. American politicians about lost their minds and began a bipartisan scramble to get that loophole closed–at least Bass is reconciling ideologically opposite political parties! But is Bass pulling some similar shenanigan with his predictions about China? Now that isn’t as easy to tell.
