    Paul was introduced to me several months ago by his colleague from Texas Instruments, Gail Chandler, who serves on the Chamber's Board and Executive Committee. It was apparent from the beginning of our meeting that Paul is one of the leading experts in energy solutions at the industrial level, and he was able to make more than one dozen recommendations on a much smaller scale to the Chamber as we work towards a major remodeling of our office building. While I would have been content with the notes I took during the meeting, Paul followed up our visit with a comprehensive email just days later that included links to articles and products along with follow-ups on additional ideas that he had considered after our initial get together. The Chamber has benefitted greatly from Paul's expertise, just as I am certain all who know him have across the span of his career at TI and in advising the U.S. and foreign nations on matters pertaining to efficiency.
