DALLAS - Texas Instruments (TI) has announced that Christine Todd Whitman, former administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and former governor of the state of New Jersey, has been elected to its board of directors.

Whitman's career in government has spanned the state and national levels. Most recently, she served as administrator of the EPA in the cabinet of President George W. Bush from January 2001 to June 2003. Prior to her federal service, she was governor of New Jersey, serving two terms from January 1994 to December 2000.

"TI is fortunate to have a leader of Governor Whitman's caliber join its board of directors," said Tom Engibous, Texas Instruments chairman, president, and chief executive officer. "Her broad executive and administrative experience in managing large, complex organizations and her pragmatic approach to problem solving will benefit the deliberations of the TI board.

"In addition, her experience on a wide range of public policy issues - from education to the environment, from taxes to the economy - will be a valuable asset to TI."
