Chad Akin, 2020-21 Tempe Chamber Board Chair 

Chad Akin, director of Labs at State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company, has served on the Tempe Chamber Board of Directors since 2017 and most recently has joined the Tempe Community Action Agency Board of Directors. 

Prior to moving to Arizona, Chad served on the boards of directors for various organizations, such as the Winter Haven Chamber of Commerce, Polk County Red Cross and American Cancer Society of Polk County. 

In Chad’s free time, he and his wife, Jae Lynn, like to spend time with their two daughters and enjoy playing a round or two of golf. And, when the “winter cold” isn’t cold enough in the Valley, Chad and his family enjoy traveling north for the weekend to snow ski.
