Immigrants Of The Week: Omid Kordestani, John Catsimatidis, and Ray Young

by Greg Siskind

IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: OMID KORDESTANI - IT PIONEER

Iranian-born Omid Kordestani was Google's 12th employee and he is one of the key executives who has turned the firm in to one of the world's most successful companies. I just read an interesting article about Kordestani where he credits his immigrant background for much of his success and urges America's young people to adapt an immigrant mindset:

“To keep an edge, I must think and act like an immigrant.

There is a special optimism and drive that I benefited from and continue to rely on that I want all of you to find.

Immigrants are inherently dreamers and fighters”

We're an immigrant country and its those immigrant roots that give us a competitive edge.
