Agilent Technologies names Gooi Soon Chai SVP, order fulfillment and supply chain

Agilent Technologies announced that Gooi
Soon Chai has been appointed senior vice president, order fulfillment and
supply chain.

In this position, Gooi now leads a new,
centralized organization created to help Agilent leverage its strength in
manufacturing, procurement and logistics across the company’s three business
groups: life sciences, chemical analysis and electronic measurement.

Gooi will report to Ron Nersesian,
Agilent’s chief operating officer. Gooi was previously vice president and
general manager of the electronic instrument business unit within Agilent’s
Electronic Measurement Group and the vice president and general manager of
EMG’s order fulfillment organization.

“Agilent has enjoyed tremendous success
from the strength of its three businesses. We’re building upon that with our
ability to leverage Agilent’s global purchasing power and infrastructure. This
change is about creating an opportunity for the order-fulfillment leaders in
each of these businesses to look for ways to further leverage work and
resources that will ultimately enhance the customer experience,” Nersesian said.

Gooi joined the company in 1985. He has
extensive international experience, and has managed a diverse portfolio of
businesses serving the general-purpose, semiconductor, board-test and
nanotechnology markets. He established Agilent’s instruments business unit in
Asia and was instrumental in the consolidation and streamlining of order
fulfillment and the global supply chain for the company’s electronic
measurement business.
