Cody Ginsel

Cody Ginsel is moving from his current assignment as director of the agency’s Private Facility Contract Management/Oversight Division (PFCMOD) to become director of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice’s Facilities Division, effective March 1. The Facilities Division provides structural design, construction, maintenance and environmental compliance services so agency buildings and their operating systems are kept in good working order, every hour of every day.

Ginsel began his agency career in 1988 as a clerk for the Windham School District. In 1990 he became a correctional officer at the Huntsville Unit and earned advancement through the Correctional Institutions Division (CID), eventually serving as senior warden, regional director, director of Correctional Training and Staff Development, and deputy director of Management Operations.

In 2016 Ginsel became director of PFCMOD, which is responsible for oversight of agency contracts with privately operated and community-based facilities.

During his first month in his new role, Ginsel will work with current Facilities Division Director Frank Inmon, who plans to retire from the agency.

Ginsel holds a Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice from Lamar University in Beaumont.
