Nick Akins Appointed to Wexner Center Foundation Board

The Wexner Center Foundation appointed Nick Akins, president of American Electric Power, to the board at its fall meeting at the Wexner Center for the Arts on October 6. Akins takes the place of outgoing trustee Carl English, vice chairman of AEP, who will be retiring in December.

The Wexner Center Foundation is a private, nonprofit partner of The Ohio State University Board of Trustees established to advance the interests of the Wexner Center for the Arts. Its primary role is to provide trustee guidance and sustained support for Wexner Center programming.

As AEP’s recently appointed president, Akins, who has 29 years of experience with the company, is responsible for AEP’s utilities, transmission, generation, and commercial operations that serve more than 5 million customers in 11 states.

“Nick’s leadership skills and his extensive experience in a number of strategic areas in the AEP organization will enhance the Wexner Center as it moves into its third decade,” says Leslie H. Wexner, chair of the Wexner Center Foundation board of trustees. “We’ve been very fortunate to have Carl’s participation and generous advocacy of the arts center over the years, and look forward to continuing our close relationship to AEP with Nick at the helm.”
