MORGAN HILL, Calif. -- Anritsu Corporation's Board of Directors announces the appointment of Hiromichi Toda as President of Anritsu Corporation, effective June 23, 2005. Toda succeeds Akira Shiomi, who will remain with Anritsu Corporation as a representative director and Chairman of the Board. Toda will serve as Executive Deputy President from April through June to support Shiomi, and ensure a smooth and effective transition.

"Toda has been a vital part of the success of Anritsu Corporation during his career. I expect his strong leadership in all areas of the company as new president," said Shiomi. "I am very confident that he is the best man to implement the proper programs that will ensure Anritsu maintaining its leadership position."

Toda was named President after a very successful tenure as General Manager of Anritsu's Measurement Group. Under his direction, the test and measurement business unit experienced substantial growth, especially in the wireless communications segment. The Measurement Group is one of Anritsu Corporation's largest business units, with worldwide sales of 47.7 billion yen last fiscal year ended March 31, 2004. With direct sales offices in 15 countries, Anritsu is a world leader in the communications market.

"It is a great honor and privilege to be named President of Anritsu Corporation. I have tremendous respect for Akira Shiomi and he exhibited great leadership as President. I will work with the board to ensure that Anritsu Corporation maintains its global leadership position in all aspects of our business," said Toda.

Mark Evans, formerly General Manager of Anritsu's Globalization Center, will replace Toda as General Manager of the Measurement Group beginning April 1. Evans was previously President of Anritsu Company, where he was responsible for Anritsu's sales and marketing in the Americas, as well as all operations of Anritsu's Microwave Measurement Division (MMD).
