Each year, the Greater Phoenix Chamber honors top officials with the Sentinel Award for exemplary work and public service. For their willingness to champion efforts that ensure Arizona’s business climate is healthy and competitive, the Chamber recognized two individuals at the 35th Annual IMPACT Awards, which took place on May 13, 2022.

Senator Tyler Pace

Award sponsored by:

Senator Tyler Pace is a long-standing advocate of Arizona’s business community – as a fifth generation Arizonan, Senator Pace has deep roots in the community and is making sure our economy stays on the fast track. Tyler serves as the Senate Transportation and Technology Committee Chairman and is leading the charge on ensuring Maricopa County maintains its world class transportation system.

As a business owner, Senator Pace truly knows what it’s like to sign the front of a paycheck and remains committed to being a life-long job creator. He has been a consistent champion of reducing regulations and streamlining government and has assisted in crafting and advancing numerous pro-business policies. Tyler has unique ability to see all sides of an issue before casting his vote which I think we can all agree is a much-needed asset in today’s policy environment.
