Shaygan Kheradpir is first and foremost a technician, an engineer, seeking the truth by discovering even small things to improve the quality of life of everyone on this fragile but beautiful planet. His doctorate obtained from Cornell University in upstate New York in hand, he set out, on his mission, to improve the world and our lives and to make his father a Doctor practicing in Iran proud of his son. He has been successful!
In climbing the ladder to economic and professional growth, Shaygan Kheradpir has directed and enriched the lives of thousands directly and many millions of others who would not know his name or even be correct in assuming his sex. Such is a problem with society today when children are named after natural things, cities, months of the year or a plethora of African names which have rendered the Tom, Dick and Harry of American culture as antiquated.
Let´s consider a successful graduate with a doctoral degree entering the work force and look at the companies available for someone with this advanced degree. Certainly tech companies, those dealing with communication like GTE and Verizon would be appropriate candidates but it is strange that he had a tenure with Barclays in London. That was the bank with the first billion pound trading scandal. But our Mr. Shaygan Kheradpir had nothing to do with that, instead his work on communication was a boon to the management at Barclays and he soon sat on the board of directors as the first executive to achieve this level of success coming from the technological side of this international banking giant.
As Shaygan Kheradpir continues to grow both as an engineer and an executive his more philosophical side is made evident by writings in his blog. Here we find a man dedicated to the planet, a conservationist, an executive who asks, no requires, his associates to think outside the box. His successes at Verizon using this innovative technique have improved our cell phone and internet connectivity. His efforts helped Verizon, and other companies he has worked for, stay a step ahead of their competitors. Not a bad result from a man whose first name is not only hard to pronounce but harder to assign a sex to.
We would only encourage Mr. Shaygan Kheradpir to speak freely about his commitments to the environment. He is needed to be a voice against the destruction of our planet. He has the proven intelligence and education. As a free thinker he could influence thinking on global warming and on the destruction of rain forests which may house valuable assets in the fight against disease. He has been successful in many areas in his career, now we would, only, ask him to continue his fight for innovation in an arena of supreme importance.
