Illumina President Francis deSouza has taken a seat on the firm's board of directors. The company added a spot on the board, boosting its number from nine to 10 seats, to accommodate deSouza. He will stand for re-election at the firm's 2014 shareholder meeting.
DeSouza joined Illumina as president in December. He previously was president of products and services at Symantec, which was acquired by Imlogic, a firm that deSouza founded and for which he served as CEO. He also worked at Microsoft, where he developed the company's real-time collaboration offerings.
Agilent Technologies has tapped Guillermo Gualino to be its VP and treasurer.
Gualino, who has been serving as assistant treasurer, replaces Robert Cantrell, who will shift to Keysight Technologies, a new electronic measurement company to be formed by Agilent's split into two publicly traded companies. Gualino will report to Agilent CFO Didier Hirsch.
Before he joined Agilent, Gualino was assistant treasurer at Flextronics International and he worked in finance at Ernst and Young, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and the Ventana Growth Fund.
