Until his retirement in November 2020, Humphries spent two decades at Flex, the 160,000-employee, Singapore-based, multinational electronics contract manufacturer. In his most recent role at Flex, Humphries served as president for its High Reliability Solutions (HRS) unit, which generated $11 billion in annual revenue and served the medical, automotive, and industrial sectors (including industrial equipment, aerospace and defense, energy and power).
Humphries stated, “I know the Westfall team and their capabilities. They are dynamic executives and committed to investing in their teams, customers, and technologies. Great examples include their new clean rooms in California, Wisconsin and Chicago, as well as their stable of proprietary technologies.”
“We are thrilled to have Paul on our board,” said Gomulka. “He is one of the industry’s leading thinkers and a valued personal mentor. We look forward to his insights into our ambitious investment strategy.”

Prior to Chatham, Humphries held several senior management positions at AlliedSignal, Honeywell and Borg-Warner Corp. He has also served for many years on the boards of both the nonprofit Silicon Valley Education Foundation (promoting STEM education) and Superior Industries International Inc. Humphries holds a bachelor’s degree (Hons) in applied social studies from Coventry University in the U.K. and postgraduate certification in human resource management from West Glamorgan Institute of Higher Education, also in England.
