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.
Mark began his career in Technology Management. An evergreen learner, he wanted more so enrolled in a post-graduate IT program – one year later, Mark graduated at the top of his class; and, leapt into the world as a Computer Programmer where he spent time with various start-up software firms. Mark later migrated into the global banking arena, joining RBC as a Technology Analyst. It would be at RBC where Mark felt the pull of his calling in People Management. And, over the course of his 8-year tenure with them, he was trained, coached and promoted to ever-evolving roles within the organization.
In 2014, he learned of Vertex – a rising star in the IT Service Provider sector; and, joined their talented collective as CIO. Mark’s compassionate and caring presence was palpable in the company, amidst the culture, and with the clients – he was someone we knew we wanted around for a very long time. As a result, one year later Mark was made a partner, and started transitioning into the role of COO. Today he and Tyler lead Vertex – having developed and cultivated a powerful partnership, rooted in deep trust, bountiful respect, and an infinite drive for service excellence.
When Mark is not at Vertex, he can be found in one of three places. One, in his car – gladly chauffeuring he and his wife, Laura; or, their four inspiring children to their various recreational interests. Two, outdoors in the open air – be it on their rural property in Halton Hills or at their cottage in Haliburton, Mark and his family savour the life they have fostered. Or, three, at the gym – a competitive bodybuilder in his youth, Mark remains devoted to his physical and mental well-being; and, has been known to rise with the sun to pump iron every day of the week (just reading this makes us tired, too).
Neil has been building his arsenal of skills and expertise in the Information Technology arena, over the past 25 years. Most recently, his field of vision has become laser-focused on security and protection best practices. At Vertex, Neil is our Virtual Chief Information Office (CIO) – this means that he diligently works with our clients to help them discern and mastermind their own unique security requirements.
When Neil’s not CIO’ing, he can be found on the ice coaching ringette. Or, donned in costume nourishing his community theatre fervor. Or, slowing down amidst a glorious provincial park, with his family and fur baby. His heart is tremendously gracious, so you will also see him devoting his affection to the Board of Directors for his local Humane Society, a Medieval Festival, and most recently, his community Ringette Association.

In his current role, he performs security and IT infrastructure reviews, to both identify and mitigate technical risks.

When he’s not alley-ooping he savours his time watching re-runs of The Office and Parks and Recreation.

When not being the master IT builder, you will find Lance Armstrong smiling ear-to-ear, infinitely happy to be on the roads or the open trails with his bicycle. And, when he isn’t riding, he is either teaching or practising the ancient martial art of Tai Chi.
