Meet Our CEO
Susan Arlin joined as CEO on November 30, 2021. An experienced leader in business strategy, communications, e-commerce, staff development, public speaking and more, Susan brings a unique combination of skills to serve the GFACC’s diverse membership. She has worked with a variety of businesses – varying in size, industry, and challenges – and has a proven track record of delivering customized strategies and solutions for business and individual success.
Susan has lived in the Farmington/Farmington Hills community for 22 years, raising three children who attended Farmington Public Schools. A passionate servant leader, Arlin is the Chairperson of the Farmington Pathways Committee and is a volunteer at The Farmington Farmer’s Market, one of the most successful markets in the state. Susan also created the Farmington Brewing Company (FBC) Run Club in 2016, with the goal of creating a running community in downtown Farmington. What started with 25 people has grown to include over 600 participants over the years, running every Tuesday night and during special events, while finding creative ways to support downtown businesses.
When Susan is not working with Chamber members, you can find her running around town–literally.
