If Tyson had not entered the design profession, he might have been a builder. His whole life, he’s been fascinated with how individual parts can be assembled to make an even better whole. And yet, that same fascination is what drew him to operations: how can a more efficient workflow lead to the better design and delivery of projects?
Over the years, Tyson’s natural camaraderie, ability to motivate teams, and knack for contracts and finance have earned him various leadership roles, from project manager to managing director to, today, Chief Practice and Operating Officer. But success to him isn’t just about the numbers. Have we cultivated a positive workplace culture at our firm? Are our people here happy? If the answer to both of those questions is yes, then no matter what, we’ve been successful.
