Shaygan Kheradpir’s Career

Kheradpir is now CEO of Coriant, replacing Pat DiPietro, who will become vice chairman and an operating partner at Marlin Equity Partners, the company that built Coriant.

Kheradpir is walking into this new situation with his eyes open, having been working closely with the senior management team in the role of Operating Executive to Marlin Equity Partners.

Kheradpir’s record of achievements is impressive. He is a recognized technology and business leader with over 28 years of executive experience across the telecom, technology, and financial services industries. He started out at GTE Corporation and was then appointed Verizon’s EVP and Chief Information Officer, as well as a member of of the executive leadership team driving the efficiency, systems modernization, innovation, and beginning product initiatives. One such initiative was FiOS — an infrastructure program with a capital investment of $20 billion and one of the biggest in America. Barclays took him on next as Chief Operations and Technology Officer, as well as a member of the Executive Committee. Here, he helped lead the TRANSFORM program. Then, Juniper Networks took him, and he developed an operating plan for the business, focussing execution on the strategic growth markets of High IQ Networking and Cloud Builder. Before joining Coriant, Kheradpir worked as Operating Partner at Marlin Equity Partners. He holds a Ph. D., master’s, and bachelor’s in engineering from Cornell University.

As an optical vendor, Kheradpir will be working to grow the company — in spite of Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco, Ciena, and Infinera. This will be all the harder as Coriant’s optical revenues declined 11 percent in 2014, when Infinera, Ciena, and ZTE all gained by 12, 23, and 26 percent respectively. But Coriant focusses on large customers and carriers and therefore hopes to build on their success in supplying packet-optical systems. And the company has been winning deals from quite a few key customers, especially with several international carriers (NBN, China Unicorn, BSNL, Telia Sonera International Carrier [TSIC]). As CEO Kheradpir will have to drive new sales in order to meet service providers’ 100G to multi-terabit coherent metro and long haul transport deployments. https://www.coriant.com/company/bios/Shaygan_Kheradpir.pdf

CEO of CCMP Capital Advisors Stephen Murray Dies at 52

In February, CCMP Capital Advisors’ chief executive officer resigned from the buyout firm due to mounting and mysterious health concerns. At only 52 years of age, Mr. Murray passed away on March 12th. While other details were not made available, the New York based company’s spokeswoman, Alexandra LaManna did confirm this much.

As a founding partner of CCMP, Steve Murray created JPMorgan Chase & Co back in 2006 in order to steer clear of the potential conflicts of interests with clients of the renowned bank.

From Day One CCMP has been particularly able in terms of middle-market leveraged buyouts and growth equity investments. In fact, these assets managed to raise their latest funds to $3.6 billion last year alone.

However, Steve Murray was so much more than a former partner with unparalleled skillsets. He was a dear friend who so very many both admire and mourn. The firm’s CEO released a statement remembering his friend and former partner, “Steve Murray was a terrific investor and deal maker.” Read more: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/01/realestate/west-village-townhouse-for-17-million.html?_r=0 and Exclusive: CCMP Capital CEO Stephen Murray leaves firm

According to Xrepublic, the New York company invests $100 million to $500 million of equity with each transaction focusing on business in the consumer, industrial, health care and energy sectors. Some better known investments include Cabela’s Inc., Quiznos Corp. and Warner Chilcott Plc.

Late founding member, Stephen Murray was raised in the NYC area in a suburb of Westchester County. Upon earning a Bachelor of Arts degree from Boston College and a Master of Business Administration from Columbia University in New York, Murray was eventually hired as a credit trainee for Manufacturers Hanover Trust Co.

He was ultimately promoted to the esteemed position of middle market lending vice president before joining the private equity and leveraged finance unit of Manufacturers Hanover (which preceded CCMP.)

Though this purchase angered many competitors like KKR’s founder Henry Kravis, these relationships are seemingly better now and considered better separate than together.
Stephen Murray is survived by his wife Tami A. Murray of Stamford, Connecticut and their four sons.

Using The Wen Cleansing Conditioner

Everyone has a hair regimen. Whether you use specific brands, or try new ones each and every month, it can be costly to purchase these items. There is a product available on Amazon.com called the Wen cleansing conditioner that includes shampoo, conditioner and a styling treatment in one product, and it is sweeping the nation. Since Chaz Dean became a big deal, Wen products have really taken off. He is a celebrity hair professional, residing in Hollywood, and dealing with some of our favorite A-list actresses. Chaz Dean has been doing hair for over thirty years and is highly trusted by anyone who loves their hair.

One young lady decided to try Wen out, after seeing the YouTube ads and hearing all the great things about it.  She did the experiment with the intentions of getting some volume but, in the end, she gained so much more. Though, you have to use quite a bit of the product, you only need the one Wen cleansing conditioner instead of several. What started out as a little added volume, turned into a whole different head of hair by the end of her week long experiment.
