Coriant, a leading optical transmission supplier, has recently decided to name Shaygan Kheradpir as its new Chief Executive Officer. He will be taking over the position from former CEO, Pat Dipietro, who joined the company’s chair and took back his old place in Marlin Equity Partners as an operating partner. Today, Coriant brings new solutions to networking and supplies optical transmissions to clients in dozens of countries around the world.
This isn’t Shaygan’s first time in an executive position. He has almost 30 years of executive experience in the technology industry. Before his new position at Coriant, he was CEO of Juniper Networks. Kheradpir started his career in communications back in 1987 with GTE laboratories, where he used more modern computer science to work on the firm’s systems. He also worked at Verizon Communications as Chief Information and Technical Officer.
His long experience in the industry and reputable resume didn’t land him an easy spot as Coriant’s new CEO. Shaygan Kheradpir was able to work with Coriant early in 2015 while working as operating partner at Coriant’s parent company, Marlin Equity Partners. During his time working with Coriant’s management, he became a valuable resource. The former CEO even expressed his excitement after having been able to work with Shaygan and his capabilities for insight and strategic execution of operations.
Shaygan plans to use his CEO position to strategize for Coriant’s future. He will expand on Coriant’s systems and build a stronger focus on its clients, while finding the optimal solutions to positively impact their standing on the highly competitive technological market.
Forbes has taken a look at how athleisure is making casual gym clothes look good again. There was a time when women would go to and from the gym without wearing any of their gym clothes outside because it was embarrassing. New brands like Fabletics on fabletics.ca are changing that, and now everyone is getting in on the act.
Athleisure is a whole new classification of clothing that women will love because it helps them look good even though they are just to the gym or going shopping. Kate Hudson started Fabletics with the idea of athleisure because she wanted it to be easy to get dressed for the gym. Now everyone is copying her style in their own clothes. Kate Hudson can be seen magazines wearing these easy clothes, and she is still at the forefront of the industry.
Companies like Nike and Luluemon are making sure that they create their own versions of athleisure by giving women bright colors to wear, and the clothes can be paired with other pieces to look nice when women leave the gym.
There are also women who are making sure that they can be presentable if they have to go out in public after they go to the gym or just before. Athleisure allows these women to look good in nice tops and dresses that they can change out of in the gym in a few seconds. Kate Hudson said that she wanted Fabletics to be easy to use, and these other brands are doing the same thing.
Athleisure is the easiest way for any woman to dress because it lets her be casual without doing any work to look good. The clothes look nice, but no woman has to worry about looking strange. She can wear the clothes to the gym, change easily and head out to dinner. These clothes are the new every day standard for women who want to look chic without trying.

Sanjay Shah was recently interviewed by Eric Dye for Dye’s podcast, Entrepreneurial Podcast Network’s Enterprise Radio. The interview was recapped in an article from PR Newswire that was recently posted by Pharmiweb. The article discussed Shah and ran through a number of his accolades. One of the main areas of Shah’s life that the article focused on was the founding of Autism Rocks. Shah shared that he had founded the charity after his son, Nikhil, was diagnosed with autism.
One of the big questions that the interview tackled was how to make a business successful. Shah mentioned that new business owners should keep 2 things in mind. The first thing is that you need to make sure you have plenty of money when you start out and the second thing is that you need to understand that you may have to bring in other people to do some of the work.
Sanjay Shah is the founder of Solo Capital. Even though the firm was only founded in 2011, it has already seen so much success that Shah has been able to step back from his daily oversight and become mostly retired. Since he retired Shah has been focused on 2 projects that he is passionate about. Both of the projects are enmeshed in the music industry. One project is the charity that Shah founded, Autism Rocks. This charity raises money for autism research by hosting private concerts. Guests are asked to make a donation of at least 500 pounds and performances include Drake, Michael Buble and Prince.
The other project that has been keeping Shah busy is a partnership with a Dubai based promotional firm, Done Events. Several years ago, Shah approached the company and asked if they would be interested in teaming up and hosting a reggae festival in Dubai. Done Events said that they would love to team up with Shah on a jazz festival, because there was no real fan base for reggae in Dubai. The jazz festival was a major success and is now happening annually.
Forefront Management Group’s Chief Executive Officer, Brad Reifler saw the need to help investors with less capital to invest into national and global markets. Reifler founded the investment banking and advisory firm in 2009. When he started the firm, he targeted accredited investors. Eventually, he developed strategies to include non-accredited investors without income criteria.
Mr. Reifler endeavors to change the firm’s services for the middle class and U.S. citizens, included offering a 529 college savings plan and developing a public fund. The college savings plan was created for people regardless of wealth status and income. People who invested into the college savings fund experienced losses. Brad Reifler didn’t give up on his mission to offer services to the average American and middle class investors.
Wikipedia shows that after he observed the economic situation pertaining to student debt in 2005, and the percentage of people who weren’t able to save more than $6 thousand dollars, his focus began to shift again. The Great Recession that followed after 2005, caused an economic crisis that impacted Americans greatly. Millions of Americans were unable to save and had to financially recovery from the aftermath. Now that the U.S. economy has stabilized with growth in employment in 2015 and 2016, Americans are positioned to start financial planning for future savings.
Philip N. Diehl is not someone who has a lot of free time on his hands. He is the president of U.S. Money Reserve, one of the biggest distributors of precious metal coins in the United States. The day-to-day operations of the business and all its endeavors do require a lot of work.
Diehl was able to take some time out for a 15-minute interview on the EPN podcast network. The 15 minutes reveals a tremendous amount about the subject of gold coins and investing. Diehl puts forth some biographic information about himself that is both interesting and entertaining.
The interview is a must listen. The highlights are worth reading. PR Newswire did a nice job of covering a few of those highlights.
Philip Diehl amassed a great deal of experience in the public sector before moving into the president’s chair of U.S. Money Reserve. Diehl ran one very important department in the U.S. Government, the U.S. Mint. The Mint, of course, produces the monetary supply for the nation. In addition to standard coins and paper currency, the U.S. Mint creates rare, collectible coins made of 99+% gold, silver, and platinum.
Looking to step things up, Diehl drove the distributions numbers of U.S. Mint coins up significantly. He helped established a massive global network. Now, he brings that enthusiasm to U.S. Money Reserve.
During the interview, Diehl notes that U.S. Money Reserve prefers to deal in U.S. Mint-produced gold coins. There are a few reasons why believes these coins are worth the investment. For one, they are backed by the powerful economy of the U.S. government. They are legitimate coins. Diehl reveals the shocking truth that a number of gold bars, bullion, and coins imported into the United States are total fakes. Coins from the U.S. Mint are absolutely not fakes.
In many ways, the decisions of others to buy gold leads many to do the same. If a major bank buys up a lot of gold, a great many people are going to take this as the hint to buy their own reserves. Worries about the strength of the stock market and currency also prompt buying.
New York has always been one of the most exciting and vibrant cities in the world, which is why the luxury real estate market here is so enticing. In recent years the market here has experienced an incredible boom, as it recovered from the economic downturn of 2008. The recovery was then followed by another major boom. Recent numbers would indicate that the boom is continuing, but as a recent article in www.Crainsnewyork.com points out, numbers can be deceiving.
Though the market in New York City real estate appears to be up a whopping 17% from last year, with the median price on properties at $1.1 million, that number may not reflect the reality of what is happening. Some significant development deals closed in 2016, which might make it appear that the market is still hot. Those contracts were likely started over a year ago, when the situation was different, and these numbers pushed the overall numbers up. What we’re actually seeing is that the market is softening here, especially in sales of homes in newly constructed buildings.
Still, the fact is that New York is a dynamic market with many elements. The resale market here, which still accounts for almost 3/4 of the overall market, is doing well.
One of the companies that is thriving here is TOWN Residential. Since its launch in 2010, TOWN has taken off, due to its combination of market knowledge and fine client service. This is a real estate company that knows the real estate market, and that is committed to delivering the very best for its client base.
When its time to get into the luxury real estate market in New York, it’s time to call TOWN.
Michael Zomber is a gun collector and his weapons of interest are antique. He has been collecting, as well as buying and selling such weaponry for more than 40 years.

He is a great supporter of groups whose mission it is to foster peace, such as Amnesty International, UNICEF and Doctors without Borders.
Part of his goal is to educate people and help them understand such weapons when used in an adverse manner will cause negative results, but they can be collected and studied and owners will find the beauty in such weapons from the way they are manufactured to the detail that reveals the great history behind them.
Besides being a gun collector, Michael Zomber wears several other hats and one of those hats is story teller. He loves to share his knowledge of guns and has appeared on the History Channel series Tales of the Gun. Mr. Zomber is also a recognized International authority on Japanese samurai swords. Another of Mr. Zomber’s hats is writer and has a dozen screen plays and a number of historical novels to his credit. He has penned a non-fiction work, as well. All his writings are in print.
Zomber and his wife, Andrea, established a production company named Renascent Films, LLC, and produced a documentary entitled “Soul of the Samurai.” The documentary was well received and acquired much critical acclaim as an authoritative feature bringing much knowledge and history to the forefront.
