Member Tyler Emery in the Spotlight

How long have you been a member of IFMA Charlotte?
3 years. I was affiliated with the Philadelphia Chapter previously. 

Why did you join IFMA Charlotte?
I wanted to network with the people who were directly influencing the growth of this city.  Dallas Schwerin, former VP of IFMA Charlotte, was the first member I met.  His welcoming personality and his laid back approach (long hair and all) had me hooked to the culture of the Charlotte Chapter.  

What is your favorite tip for someone new in this industry?
A quitter never wins and a winner never quits.  FM can be a competitive industry but keep pressing on and seek out where you can make a difference and a name for yourself. 

What do you like to do in your free-time?
I'm either reading, traveling to strange places or training for Triathon races.

If you could adopt an animal from the zoo, what would it be and why?
An otter.  They are always having the most fun.

What was your first concert, when and where?
I attended a Beach Boys Concert when I was a teenager.  Kokomo is a timeless classic.
