"He joins us with an impressive portfolio of relevant experience in general and operational management, marketing and strategy that builds on a foundation of life sciences knowledge. He will be an excellent addition to our executive team."

Raha joins Agilent from Illumina Inc. where he most recently served as vice president of global marketing.
