For as long as he can remember, Tyler has been enthralled by both technology and gadgets. His first foray into entrepreneurship occurred at the tender age of 8 – and, while primarily motivated to save enough money to buy video gaming consoles and computers (maybe even a Commodore 64) his early industrialist efforts inspired a life’s journey. Now 25-years later, he is still as enchanted by technology and gadgets – and, has built an impressive career as a result. After successfully leading an IT consulting company for almost a decade, Tyler founded Vertex in 2008 – a company intentionally created to specifically and sustainably focus on IT for law firms.
As CEO at Vertex, Tyler continuously works on researching and evaluating the most innovative solutions for the company and the clients they serve. He is, however, most proud of the team (and, culture) he has built – an intelligent, compassionate, empowered company that excel in cultivating meaningful client relationships and exceptional service excellence.
Tyler revels in watching sports, but his effervescence is hockey – he is most specifically starry-eyed for the Maple Leafs; who he truly believes will one day be the victorious Stanley Cup champions (it’s important to dream). Outdoorsy, absolutely – Tyler has an epic fascination for wake surfing, snowboarding, snorkelling, fishing and pretty much anything else that gets him on (or in) the water. He is a devoted husband of 16-years (something to be very proud of young man), and a doting dad to his two children. The Sanders are the epitome of the bucket list family – travelling the world together, pinning each journey on their we-were-here map. When he isn’t leading the company, or travelling with his clan, Tyler can be found on the ice coaching his son’s rep hockey team, or filling his gas tank as it empties quite quickly Uber-ing his kiddos anywhere and everywhere.
