Lori Senecal Demystifying the Role of Branding

Have you ever wondered how blithe celebrities like Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, and more lethal ones like Amy Winehouse dangerously toy with a career that made them so famous? Is it possible for such women to continually enjoy success at the expense of destructive behavior openly displayed to the public, and at the same time manage to garner lucrative contracts as brand ambassadors? Or raise millions of dollars to start up celebrity brands like the Britney line of perfumes?

Companies and brands can borrow a leaf from the outwardly ignorant young stars and the value of their branding strategies. These celebrities convert every day acts like of buying coffee or shopping for hiking boots into a preferred, hyped-up celebrity media moment. What do natural branding secrets these clueless celebrities posse? Below is a list of key lessons:

1. Consumers adore great comebacks. The only formula to create extra publicity is a makeover. Nintendo was thought as a dead game by hard-core gamers after Sony PlayStation stole the show, but Nintendo reinvented with a massive comeback with the Wii game.

2. Company downsizing as a strategy to draw massive attention. The Olsen Twins transformed to “It Girls” when they drastically lost weight. It can work for brands too; the Blackberry Pearl unveiled smaller smarter and buzzier phones.

3. Get caught with an extra sexy name. It worked perfect for Brangelina and never mind that the partnership never lasted. Brands like Nike merged with Apple to form Nike +, and it stole a Grand Prix at Cannes.

4. Adopt a cause. Celebrity philanthropy has gone wild with following corporate suit. Everyone is suddenly obligated to save the world, and clothe refugees. Corporations like BP have rebranded using eco-initiatives as an alternative to going green with the rest of the world.

5. Develop an icon. Mature brands can transform themselves by finding a symbol that illuminates their brands, like Geico and the gecko.

Kheradpir Making It at Coriant

A changing of the guard is never an unusual nor a bad thing in any company, big business or place of employment. As far as Coriant goes, they have become aware of this now thanks to a recent decision involving the top people in place.

Coriant, a known telecommunications company has just recently named Shaygan Kheradpir to the position of CEO, effectively allowing him to run the company. He replaces Pat DiPietro who will serve as the vice chairman for the company. Kheradpir isn’t necessarily new to being involved with Coriant, because according to some vendors he had been working closely alongside the senior management team dating back to earlier in the year, specifically with Marlin Equity Partners. The vendor has also come out and said that his experience in the technology and communications business field for decades has been greatly appreciated, which is why choosing him for the top spot had to happen.

Kheradpir had his early beginnings as a London native who grew up in Iran and chose to go to college at Cornell University in the United States. There he earned his bachelors, masters and doctorate degrees all in the field of electrical engineering. Once he finally finished college he got his first job by working at GTE Laboratories and was tasked with being a network and routing manager. His work was so well done that he was awarded the position of chief information officer (CIO) as a result.

By the year 2000, GTE and Bell Atlantic and formed a merger and Verizon was the new company that was the result of this. He remained as the CIO for this company and his responsibilities were forming small teams that would be tasked with developing new and innovative ideas to market for Verizon. One of these ideas was contributing much of the work towards Verizon’s FiOs fiber optic initiative package, allowing for easier telephone and internet usage for its customers. His team was also responsible for the creation of “Iobi,” which was an electronic application that the address books and caller IDs of its users. Over the course of his tenure at Verizon, some of Kheradpir’s achievements included reduced to needed number of IT staff and the information technology budget down to a specific amount. He was also able to negotiate closely with vendors to cut down on spending and prevent spending on equipment from failed franchises.
