Paul Clark and James Cullen have been elected to join the board of directors of Keysight Technologies, Inc., the resulting company in Agilent Technologies Inc.‘s plan to separate into two publicly traded companies.
Clark, a board director at Agilent since 2006, is expected to become Keysight’s first chairman of the board, Agilent announced Tuesday.
Cullen has been a member of the Agilent board since 2000.
Clark and Cullen are expected to assume their new roles by early November, the current target date for the completion of the spinoff. They will also continue serving their current terms as members of the Agilent board.
“I’m delighted with the appointments of two such strong contributors as our first board members for Keysight Technologies,” said Ron Nersesian, Keysight president and CEO. “Both have been key members of the Agilent board and possess an excellent understanding of Keysight’s business.”
