Apr 26, 2004

DALLAS (April 26, 2004) -- Melendy Lovett has been named senior vice president of Texas Instruments and President of the company’s Education Technology business. She also will join TI’s senior management team. Previously, Lovett was a vice president in the company’s human resources organization.

Lovett, 46, will direct the worldwide E&PS business, which focuses on market-leading educational technology to improve the teaching and learning of math and science.

“Melendy has consistently proven her ability to quickly assess business needs, implement strategic solutions and improve financial results,” said incoming TI President and Chief Executive Officer Rich Templeton. “I look forward to her leadership and her commitment to expand the focus this business has always placed on its customers.”

In addition to strong strategic skills, Lovett also brings a long-standing personal commitment and passion for math and science education. Among other things, she has established and leads an initiative of TI women who are working to improve math and science education for girls in elementary through high school.

“I’m excited about the opportunities we have to make a real contribution to the way educators teach and the way students learn with TI technology,” said Lovett. “Most consumers know TI by the calculators they used in school, so we already have a strong relationship and brand recognition. I look forward to building on these strengths and growing further.”

Lovett’s experience spans multiple areas including accounting, information technology and human resources. Prior to TI, she was a senior manager with consulting firm Coopers & Lybrand. In that capacity, she built a track record of bringing bottom-line value to her clients through strategic analysis and targeted implementation. She counseled business leaders in areas such as manufacturing, distribution, communications and publishing.
