Agilent Technologies Names Robert Cantrell as Vice President and Treasurer
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- September 19, 2013
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced that Robert Cantrell has
been named vice president and treasurer. Cantrell replaces Neil Dougherty, who
is CFO-designate of the new electronic measurement company to be formed by the
separation of Agilent into two publicly traded companies.
In his new position, Cantrell will be responsible for Agilent’s Treasury and
Investor Relations functions. He will report to Agilent Senior Vice President
and CFO Didier Hirsch. Most recently, Cantrell was operational CFO for
Agilent’s electronic measurement business.
Alicia Rodriguez, vice president, Investor Relations, will continue in that
role, reporting to Cantrell during the transition to split the company. She
has been named vice-president-designate, Internal Audit, for the new
electronic measurement company.
“Robert brings deep financial expertise to his new position,” said Hirsch. “He
will play a key role in shaping the financial profile and structure of the new
Agilent and in telling our story to investors as we become a company focused
on life sciences, diagnostics and applied markets.”
Cantrell has held numerous financial positions across the company at both the
business and corporate level. He became a division controller in 1997 and was
named global manufacturing controller for electronic measurement in 2000. He
ultimately became the first controller of the company’s Wireless Business
Unit. In 2003, Cantrell moved to Agilent headquarters as group controller of
the company’s Global Infrastructure Organization. He became vice president and
operational CFO for the electronic measurement business in 2007.
Cantrell joined HP/Agilent in 1986 with a B.S. in business administration from
San Jose State University.
