Bruce Levenson Continues Philanthropic Efforts

Published Post author

One of the biggest sports stories a few years ago surrounded the sudden sale of the Atlanta Hawks. Part of the sale had to do with a controversial firing of Danny Ferry, a former player and member of the front office staff. After the dust settled, the former ownership group of the Hawks, including Bruce Leveson, payed a substantial buyout of Ferry’s contract.

The former ownership entity of the Hawks, Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC, has submitted a claim to AIG to be covered for the settlement and payout. The ownership entity had a policy that covered any similar situations, but AIG has not yet paid out on the claim. AIG has even gone so far as stating that a claim was not filed. Due to the lack of response, the former ownership group has started the process of suing AIG to recoup on the settlement that they had to pay out to Ferry.

According to ESPN, Bruce Levenson had a controlling share of the Atlanta Hawks from 2004 until 2014. Prior to his ownership of the team, he was a key member in the founding and development of the United Communications Group. In his tenure with the company, he grew the firm from a small organization to one of the most profitable businesses in the country. Beyond his time spent organizing and developing UCG and set owning the Atlanta Hawks, Levenson has also been involved in a number of different charities. For a period of time, he was the President of the I Have a Dream Foundation, which helped low-income children obtain a higher education.

A Brief Look at Coriant

Published Post author

Coriant is one of the more well known companies in the tech industry. But it’s worth a closer examination to find out why the company is able to perform so expertly within a number of different fields. One of the most significant reasons for this is simply due to the fact that they’re maintaining a firm balance between diversity of technologies and a central focus. Too much specialization can lead to inability to really innovate. But at the same time, a company needs to be able to focus on expertly developing technologies within a specific field. Coriant is notable for the fact that it specializes in data, mobile networks, and voice. These technologies share a basic infrastructure, but are still diverse enough to keep the company agile in the face of new developments.

However, ultimately the success of a company will be due to how it’s run. And Coriant’s new CEO is guiding it expertly. One of the biggest reasons why Shaygan Kheradpir is so well suited to the position has to do with his background. Kheradpir has been working within the tech industry for over 28 years. And during that time he’s come to understand the culture in a way that many CEOs in the tech industry never do. People often assume that companies working with technological and telecommunications development can be run in the same manner as any other company. In reality the tech sector operates under a unique development cycle. Even the nature of reports and meetings will usually be different within tech companies.

The fact that Kheradpir has such extensive experience within the technology sector means that he’s able to easily relate to his employees. There’s no need to slow things down by essentially needing things explained. When developers and engineers become aware of an issue Kheradpir will always be in the loop. And this is something that makes a huge impact on a company. The technology sector moves at a very rapid pace. And anything which allows a company to act in a more speedy and agile manner will offer tremendous advantages. And Kheradpir is just such a factor for Coriant.
