Executive Vice President, Delivery Operations
Peter Streit is Executive Vice President of Delivery Operations at Coriant, where he oversees the entire value chain from supplier to customer for the company's industry-leading portfolio of packet and optical networking products. He is responsible for procurement, manufacturing (in-house and contract manufacturing), logistics, import/export and quality. Between 2012 and 2013, Mr. Streit served as Head of Operations for the Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) Optical Networks (ON) business. In this role he was responsible for the consolidation of all operations functions for the ON business, as well as management of the company's state-of-the-art production facility in Berlin, Germany. As a key member of the NSN ON management team, he was a key driver for the end-to-end assessment, planning and execution of the turnaround plan that resulted in NSN ON's return to profitability. From 2008 until 2011, he was the Head of Manufacturing Operations for NSN in Berlin, and before that he was Head of Operations at NSN China.
Mr. Streit has a strong track-record of success in several global Operations management functions with more than 25 years of experience in business leadership and operational excellence. His achievements include implementation of operations improvements that drove the turnaround for the ON supply chain and development of the company's Berlin Efficiency Program. His contributions led to a strong inventory and lead time reduction. Under his leadership, the new SAP system was introduced to the ON supply chain without any impact to customer processes or deliveries. Coriant also profits from his knowledge of integration processes that he acquired in China during the integration process of Nokia and Siemens in 2007.
Mr. Streit began his career at Siemens 1986. He holds an Engineering Diploma in Electronic & Communications Technology.
