A San Antonio native, Kaycie Tyler became President of T-Core Engineers in January 2017, just over 4 years after founding the company with Jeff Tyler in December 2012. Mrs. Tyler has a diverse business background, having served in various roles in both the corporate and nonprofit sector for over a decade before joining T-Core.

As a consultant, Mrs. Tyler specialized in fulfilling various areas of need within small businesses, particularly by identifying and eliminating inefficiencies, especially with regard to finances. Her focus has primarily been on startup businesses and nonprofits looking to establish or re-establish a strong foundation on which to operate. This experience and her myriad of skills make her the ideal leader for an up-and-coming engineering firm such as T-Core.
Prior to launching her consulting business, Mrs. Tyler dedicated her career to the nonprofit field. While fulfilling her passion to serve others, Mrs. Tyler thrived working in many different capacities including fundraising, marketing and fund development, grant procurement and management, major event management, program development, outcomes and accountability, general management, administration, human resources, and accounting. Mrs. Tyler was key in developing systems and procedures that enabled the organization to operate efficiently and, thus, remain focused on its mission.
