Duy-Loan started her career at Texas Instruments (TI) at 19 and two decades later became the first Asian American and the only female to get elected to the highest title Senior Fellow in TI’s history. During her 35 year career at TI, she led the development to grow TI’s Memory product line across 5 countries and 3 continents to generate multi-billion dollar revenue, oversaw the development of the world’s fastest Digital Signal Processor per 2004 Guinness World Records, and pioneered products enabling TI’s entry into base station & VOIP markets. Duy-Loan holds 24 patents and currently serves on the board of directors at National Instruments, Cree, Ballard Power Systems, Atomera and other private & start-up companies. She obtained her BSEE from The Cockrell College of Engineering at The University of Texas in Austin and MBA from The Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston and currently serves on the board of advisors at both institutions.
Duy-Loan’s service to the global community in the last 25 years is extensive, but her deepest love is with Sunflower Mission and Mona Foundation, two non-profit organizations supporting education and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) worldwide. She is married with 2 sons and lives in Texas.
My purpose of doing well in life is to do good … and giving a child the gift of education enables goodness in perpetuity.
