Rick Hamada to Join Keysight Technologies Board of Directors

Keysight Technologies, Inc., the spinoff electronic measurement company of Agilent Technologies, today announced plans to appoint Rick Hamada to its board of directors.

Hamada is the chief executive officer and member of the Board of Directors of Avnet Inc., positions he has held since July 2011. As CEO of Avnet, Mr. Hamada is responsible for the strategic direction and oversight of day-to-day operations of one of the largest global distributors of electronic components, computer products and embedded technology. Prior to his current role, Hamada served as chief operating officer of Avnet since July 2006, and president and chief operating officer since May 2010.

Keysight expects Hamada’s appointment to become effective concurrently with, or shortly before, the completion of the Keysight spinoff, currently targeted for November 2014.

“Rick Hamada’s experience in the electronics industry will be a great resource for our board as we chart a course for the future,” said Paul Clark, chairman-designate of Keysight’s board of directors. “Rick’s knowledge of the electronics business, as well as his understanding of the global market, makes him an excellent addition to Keysight’s growing board.”

“I look forward to working with Paul, Ron Nersesian, president and chief executive officer of Keysight, and the other members of the Keysight board,” said Hamada. “Keysight’s long history of innovation, combined with its ability to now focus solely on electronic measurement, will provide its customers with an even greater array of cutting-edge products and solutions.”
