Foundation's Board

Tom Tanaka

Board member since May 2021
Current Term of Service:
May 2021 - May 2024

Tom Tanaka has a long career as a Human Resources leader driven to build scalable organizations and environments where people thrive. He has extensive experience in global, pre-IPO and public high-tech companies during periods of large-scale change and growth. He is now at JPMorgan Chase through their digital transformation.         


After years of volunteering and giving back through youth baseball, hockey and lacrosse, Tom is eager to give back to communities in a new way. Doing so with Los Angeles County Animal Care Foundation fuels his passion for animals and ocean life.      


Tom and his wife Kim now live in San Clemente after raising their two sons in the San Francisco Bay Area. While in the Bay Area they had the great fortune to adopt and bring Mango, a very active Labrador Retriever, into their family. Being on the LACACF Board and liaison to the Gardena/Carson care center will fulfill Tom’s desire to give other people, families, and pets the same fortune he and his family have with Mango.
