Bio

Tyler has been at Braze for over five years across global Business Operations, People (HR), and Learning & Development – helping to scale the business from ~60 to 700+ employees. He joined the company in 2015 to build new hire onboarding and sales enablement programs, strategies, and processes. Tyler has a proven track record of identifying business gaps and pivoting to new responsibilities to fill those needs – including starting the People function and department in January 2016, spearheading BrazeU New Hire Onboarding and Leadership Development in January 2018, and establishing the Business Operations function in August 2019.

Currently, as the Senior Director of Business Operations & Chief of Staff to the CFO, Tyler is responsible for program and project management of strategic initiatives for the CFO, CEO, and Executive team – navigating the business with agility and guiding cross-functional global senior leaders from collaboration to execution.

Prior to his time at Braze, Tyler was at Salesforce in Post-Acquisition Integrations, Sales Enablement, and Sales Leadership Enablement. Prior to Salesforce, he was at Buddy Media (which Salesforce acquired) in Project Management and Business Operations.

Tyler graduated from Syracuse University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sport Management and Strategic Business Management. From 2015 to 2018, he served on the David B. Falk College’s Sport Management Advisory Board at Syracuse University.

Tyler’s passions outside of Braze? Family man first – NBA, Brooklyn Nets, and Sports Business junkie second.
