Get To Know Tyler And Why He Said Yes To Being A Model
How did you get roped into doing this, and what was your first thought when asked?
Melissa reached out to me and upon learning that the new beneficiary for the event in 2018 was the BGCEV I was very excited!
Why did you say yes?
As a board member it is always great when there is an opportunity to help out with the cause. I believe in our mission very strongly and feel blessed that there are organizations like the BGC in our nation dedicated to making our communities stronger. Not to mention the fact that my mom (Kathy Norman) was a model in the event last year and had a great time.
What is your official job title?
President of McKenzie SewOn
How would you describe your job to your mother?
Difficult question at the moment as I currently report to her in our business 😉
Ultimately my job at McS is to help in building the platform to strive towards our mission at McS which is to enrich the lives of our team members, clients, and the communities that we work in by providing remarkable branded merchandise.
All families are unique, tell us about yours.
I am very fortunate to have an amazing family. My parents have been amazing, supportive, and are great role models. My mom and dad started our company with less than nothing over 30 years ago and now I have the opportunity to work in it with my mom, little brother Josh, and several great friends.
Tell us about your personal passions, talents, and/or hobbies.
When I have a little free time (with nice weather) you can most likely find me on the golf course.
Who inspired you when you were growing up, and why?
My mom and dad because as entrepreneurs and small business leaders my brother and I never saw the daily struggles they worked through because they were able to keep things separate in a way that allowed them to support my brother and me.
If you could go back and talk to your 12-year-old self, what would you say?
Don’t be afraid to be outgoing and curious… Ask questions to learn about everyone you can as there are billions of great stories in our world that cannot be discovered without making the first step of engaging another person.
