Coriant Look To Shaygan Kheradpir To Lead Them Into A Bright Future


The future of the optical networking company, Coriant, seems to have been assured with the appointment of veteran technology expert Shaygan Kheradpir as the new CEO and board Chairman of the brand, which was spun out of Nokia Siemens, Tellabs, and Sycamore Networks by Marlin Equity Partners. Coriant has seen its fortunes largely rise since they were established a few short years ago, but a fall in revenue streams in 2014 seems to have played a key role in the decision to appoint Kheradpir as the replacement for Pat DiPietro.

There are many reasons why Coriant has looked to Shaygan Kheradpir to provide a steadying and influential figure at the head of the company; the role played by Pat DiPietro at Coriant has been impressive, but the need for a technology specialist has been identified by Marlin Equity Partners officials hoping to push the company on to even bigger things in the future.

Shaygan Kheradpir is well known for providing his skills as a technology based innovator for a number of different companies over the course of his more than 25 year business career. Among the areas of his career that Shaygan Kheradpir has seen as his most impressive are the innovations he made early in his career whilst working at Verizon and GTE Labs; the Cornell University graduate is generally accepted as the executive who found the most cost effective ways of developing technology through the use of small focused teams.

Over the course of his career Shaygan Kheradpir has looked to challenge himself as an all round business person who has sought to develop his business skills in many different areas. Kheradpir has worked in the financial industry, including his time as the first technology executive to sit non the board of the financial giant Barclays. Kheradpir had already been making a splash at Coriant prior to his appointment as the new CEO through his work examining every aspect of the company to highlight areas of increased profitability that could be seen; the thorough understanding Shaygan Kheradpir has of the Coriant brand is another key reason why he is the best executive to guide the company into what should be a bright future.

New Brunswick’s Devco, A Leading Real Estate Renovator Falling Behind On Payments

The New Brunswick Development Corp. (DEVCO) is in a hunt for cash, cash it needs to repay a $20 million loan granted by the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA). According to the Press Of Atlantic City, this $20 million loan was part of a $107 million project taken on by Devco to reconstruct The Heldrich Hotel, a building that had been in terrible condition but has been transformed into a premier luxury hotel. While Devco achieved the results it wanted on the reconstruction, the return on investments made for this project by municipal bonds and the CRDA loan have not been realized as the hotel’s occupancy rate has not met expectations thus far. Devco spokespeople have stated they are confident that both bondholders and the CRDA loan will be repaid, but they need more time to do so.
Devco has been one of New Brunswick’s leading non-profit real estate developers for about 40 years. They have overseen about $1.6 billion in redevelopment projects during that time and are continually breaking ground on new ones. The organization is spearheaded by Chris Paladino, president and local attorney who also is head of the Atlantic City Development Corp. Also serving in the executive leadership are Vice Presidents Allison Brown and Randall Currier, and chief development associate David Banks. Devco has won many awards for its projects including the Smart Growth Award four times, the CMI Paragon Award, and the NJ BIA Good Neighbor Award.

Besides the Heldrich, Devco has undertaken other notable projects such as the Old Bridge Long Term Care Facility. This project was undertaken in 2009 as part of an expansion to the Roosevelt Care Center at Edison and to offset subsidized costs for health facilities. Recently, with the approval of Governor Chris Christie Devco has undertaken a project to expand the Campus of Rutgers University, including building state-of-the-art academic buildings, university housing, and New Brunswick’s Theological Seminary.


Skout and Amiable College Students in the United States

Countless college students all around the United States returned to their schools in September 2015. The long summer break was over and these young students were more eager than ever to get back to the learning process. “Skout” is the name of a communications application that gives users the opportunity to encounter new faces. It’s immensely popular among people who want to network and potentially make new friends and contacts. The team behind this app assessed a year’s worth of information not too long ago. This information assessed the habits of young people who made use of the application. These people were all between 18 and 24 years of age. The goal of this review was to determine which college towns in the United States were the most affable and amiable in nature. The Skout staff carefully assessed a good number of prominent college towns in the nation. They, as a result, were able to figure out which specific towns had Skout users who were the most dedicated and active.

Their results were rather interesting, too. The 10 “friendliest locales” list was topped by Madison, Wisconsin. Madison was then followed by Los Angeles, CA, New York, NY, Ann Arbor, MI, Chicago, IL, San Francisco, CA, Boulder, CO, Phoenix, AZ, Philadelphia, PA and lastly, Dallas, TX. Skout’s list, surprisingly enough, was heavy on major metropolises such as the Big Apple.

Skout also had some other findings. Boston has a reputation for being the United States’ quintessential college town. It was number 12 on the list. The company’s information also showed that Los Angeles residents are particularly fond of giving gifts to other people. They made the most use of the app’s virtual gift features. Adding up all of the virtual gifts that were shared in Dallas, Chicago, Miami and Boston still wouldn’t beat Los Angeles. Skout’s information revealed that Boulder is home to the nicest young men around, too. The nicest young women around, on the other hand, aren’t there. They’re located in Madison nowhere close to Boulder.

Skout performed an in-depth survey that asked participants a number of key questions. The survey had 2,500 plus participants. All of these people were Skout app users. The Skout team learned via the survey that people believe it’s a lot easier to befriend others during the college years. Friendships are significantly harder during high school. Despite that, more than half of the survey’s participants noted that they felt anxiety about the idea of finding friends prior to beginning their higher educations. Many students also noted that they quickly found great buddies. 72 percent of the people who responded to Skout’s survey indicated that they encountered pals within seven days of their campus arrivals.
