Walter Hewlett to retire from Agilent

Agilent Technologies announced that Walter Hewlett will retire as a director of the company effective March 1, 2006.
Hewlett joined the board of directors when Agilent was spun off from Hewlett-Packard Company in 1999. William Sullivan, Agilent president and CEO said, "We owe Walter a debt of gratitude for his many years of service to both the HP and Agilent boards. He has helped guide Agilent during six years of challenge and change - from our IPO through our current restructuring. We wish him the very best in his future plans."

Hewlett, who cited personal reasons in his decision to leave, said, "It is a good feeling to know that I am leaving Agilent at a time when the company is in good financial condition and its future course looks promising."
