Former EPA Chief Christine Todd Whitman Joins TI Board of Directors

Dec 4, 2003

DALLAS (Dec. 4, 2003) – Texas Instruments (TI) (NYSE: TXN) today 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.

Gov. Whitman, 57, has had a distinguished career in government at 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, where she gained a reputation of combining fiscal conservatism with moderate social policies.

“TI is fortunate to have a leader of Gov. Whitman’s caliber join its Board of Directors. 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,” said TI Chairman, President and CEO Tom Engibous.

Earlier in her career, Gov. Whitman served on the Somerset County Board of Freeholders from 1982 to 1988, where she was a county commissioner. In 1988, she was appointed to head the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities. She resigned the position in 1990 to run for the U.S. Senate. Her strong showing made her a leading candidate in the 1993 gubernatorial race, in which she defeated the incumbent and became New Jersey's first female governor.

Gov. Whitman earned a bachelor’s degree in government from Wheaton College in Massachusetts in 1968.
