Pat Warren will be presented with the Tempe Chamber of Commerce’s “Spirit of Tempe” Award at the 1st Annual Beacon Awards on Feb. 26 at the Embassy Suites Tempe.
The award recognizes lifetime achievements of service, dedication and contribution to the community and honors hard work and strong commitment to improving the quality of life in Tempe.
Shortly after relocating to Tempe in mid-1990s, Warren began her career at the Twin Palms hotel and was quickly promoted to General Manager. During her tenure, the hotel was a two-time finalist for the Tempe Chamber Business Excellence Award and Warren was named Tempe Chamber Business Woman of the Year in 2003.
There is little in Tempe that Warren hasn’t been a part of. She currently serves on the boards of Tempe Leadership, Tempe Tourism & Sports Authority, and is a Life Member of the Fiesta Bowl Committee.
Warren has represented Tempe on the national scene over the years by appearing on the PBS News Hour with Jim Lehrer in support of electing Harry Mitchell to Congress and representing Arizona in the Ms. Senior America Pageant in Atlantic City.
“To say that Pat is involved in the community is an understatement. She throws herself into any project where she is need because she truly loves Tempe. And to top it off, she is an incredible businesswoman,” said Mary Ann Miller, President and CEO of the Tempe Chamber of Commerce.
