Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced plans to appoint Jean Halloran to the board of directors of Keysight Technologies, Inc., the spinoff electronic measurement products company that comprises nearly half of Agilent.
Agilent expects Halloran’s director appointment to become effective concurrently with, or shortly before, the completion of the Keysight spinoff, currently targeted for November 2014.
“I am delighted with Jean’s appointment to Keysight’s inaugural board,” said Ron Nersesian, Keysight president and CEO. “She was instrumental in the creation of Agilent 14 years ago, including its values and people practices. Jean’s leadership extended well beyond HR to Agilent’s business success overall. She will bring valuable insights and experience to our new board.”
“I am very confident about Keysight’s direction and potential for growth,” said Halloran. “Keysight’s business was the original Hewlett-Packard, later becoming the largest part of Agilent with a proven business model. I am looking forward to working with Ron and his team as they launch Keysight as a strong and dynamic independent company.”
Halloran today announced plans to retire from Agilent, effective Oct. 31, 2014. She has been senior vice president of Human Resources since the formation of Agilent in 1999. She has directed Agilent’s global policies and programs for leadership and talent development, compensation, benefits, staffing and workforce planning, human resources systems, education and organizational development.
Halloran’s extensive HR experience extends back to 1980, when she joined Hewlett-Packard’s Medical Products Group. She also has held various positions in manufacturing and strategic planning.
She holds a bachelor’s degree in art history from Princeton University and a master’s degree in business administration from Harvard University. She also conducted research in developmental psychology at Oxford University. Halloran has been a director of several schools and nonprofit organizations, including Concord Academy and Resource Area for Teachers (RAFT).
