Profile: Brian Dunlap, Texas Instruments
Brian Dunlap of Texas Instruments is one of the newest members of the Richardson Chamber board of directors.
As fab manager for the Richardson site (RFAB), Brian sees involvement in the chamber as a way to give back to the company’s community and connect with other business leaders. TI believes strong companies and strong communities go hand in hand.
“Our intention is to volunteer in a more significant way,” he said. “This year has been challenging.” As long as they could safely do so, TIers delivered meals for Meals on Wheels in the local Richardson community and Surrounding areas.
Brian leads TI’s largest semiconductor manufacturing facility and the world's first 300 mm analog wafer fab -- RFAB. He is responsible for implementing a strategic vision to drive safety, quality and operational excellence in support of company growth expectations.
RFAB has not shut down during the pandemic. “Everybody who can work remotely is working from home to support operations," he said, also stating that for those that do come on site, “We’ve got the cleanest, safest environment to work in.”
Since joining TI in 2002, Brian has held a variety of leadership roles across multiple factories in Dallas and Richardson. Prior to advancing into his current role, he led RFAB's manufacturing operations.
Before joining TI, he served as an infantry officer in the United States Marine Corps. He earned a bachelor’s degree in political science and history from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.
Brian and his wife, Jennifer, have two daughters in high school where he is the announcer for the girls’ soccer games.
