Gabe Flores was appointed ethics director at Texas Instruments in 2017. Prior to that time, he served as vice president and human resources director for TI’s Technology and Manufacturing Group, where he focused on growing future leaders; human resources’ contribution to manufacturing productivity; and stewardship of TI’s factory work environments around the world.

Flores started his career in TI’s Lubbock manufacturing plant and, for 20 years, he held several HR and leadership positions across TI’s business and sales organizations before he returned to the Technology and Manufacturing Group. Those experiences, plus his passion for employee advocacy, have served Flores well in his new role as ethics director.

Flores grew up in Carlsbad, New Mexico. He earned his bachelor’s degree in history and his master’s degree in public administration from Texas Tech University. He and his wife, Kristin, enjoy live music at small venues plus the search for great restaurants. He is a dedicated golfer.

Flores is an education advocate. In addition to his service as a board member for the DCCCD Foundation, he is a member of the Texas Tech Graduate School Dean’s Advisory Committee. Flores and his wife also have established an endowed scholarship for women at Texas Tech.
