Agilent appoints Ron Nersesian executive VP and COO

Agilent Technologies announced that Ron Nersesian has been appointed executive
vice president and chief operating officer.

Nersesian has been president of Agilent’s largest business, the Electronic
Measurement Group (EMG), since 2009.

Nersesian will have day-to-day responsibility for Agilent’s three businesses,
Electronic Measurement, Chemical Analysis and Life Sciences, with the
presidents of those businesses reporting to him.

Nersesian will continue to report to
William (Bill) Sullivan, president and chief executive officer.

Guy Sene, 56, who has been vice president of the Microwave and Communications
Division (MCD) since 2009, will replace Nersesian as EMG president.

Nersesian first joined Hewlett-Packard, Agilent’s predecessor company, in 1984.
Since then he has served in various management positions, including vice
president of the Wireless Business Unit, before being named EMG president.

“Ron has done a superb job of leading Agilent’s electronic measurement
business. He was responsible for a complete transformation of EMG, resulting in
outstanding profitable growth in current as well as emerging markets,” said

“Ron’s appointment as COO is an opportunity for Agilent to leverage the skills
of an executive with an exceptional record of business growth, cost
improvements and superior return on invested capital even during difficult
economic times,” Sullivan added.
