JDSU announces board members for Lumentum and Viavi

JDSU of Milpitas, CA, USA has announced the expected composition of the boards of directors for Lumentum Holdings Inc and Viavi Solutions Inc, the two publicly traded companies that will result from the previously announced spin-off of its Communications and Commercial Optical Products (CCOP) business. The separation is expected to be completed during third-quarter 2015.

"Both Lumentum [formerly CCOP] and Viavi Solutions [JDSU's Network Enablement (NE), Service Enablement (SE) and Optical Security and Performance Products (OSP) businesses] will have strong leadership and proven board and management teams, positioning them to deliver on their strategies," says Tom Waechter, president & CEO of JDSU, and CEO-designate for Viavi.  

Each of the Lumentum directors is expected to be appointed to the Lumentum board, effective upon completion of the spin-off from JDSU.

Lumentum expects to appoint the following directors:

  • Penelope Herscher, president & CEO of FirstRain;
  • Martin Kaplan, former executive VP of Pacific Telesis Group Inc;
  • Brian Lillie, chief information officer of Equinix Inc;
  • Samuel Thomas, director, chairman & CEO of Chart Industries Inc; and
  • Alan Lowe, CEO-designate for Lumentum, current president of JDSU's CCOP segment since 2008 and executive VP of JDSU.

"Our company will benefit from the collective institutional knowledge of the business and expertise in key market segments that these individuals bring with them," comments Lowe. Covert will serve as chairperson of the audit committee, Penelope Herscher will serve as chairperson of the compensation committee, and Martin Kaplan will serve as chair of Lumentum's board of directors as well as chairperson of the governance committee. JDSU previously announced the appointment of Pamela Strayer, contingent upon completion of the Lumentum spin-off.

Viavi expects that its board will include the following directors:

  • Keith Barnes, former chairman & CEO of Verigy and executive with Agilent, Electroglas, IMS, and Cadence;
