After a strong Wall Street career helping sovereign wealth funds, pensions and private banks globally, Tyson wanted to own a financial planning practice. He founded V Financial Partners in 2012 with the mission to care for people and their businesses through personal finance and increase financial literacy in an enjoyable, open and honest way.

Tyson’s father passed away when he was in college. Caring for his widowed mother was the top priority. The moment they met a financial adviser, emotions calmed and comfort flowed with a sound financial plan of investments and insurance solutions. Tyson’s lifelong career mission of Loving People Through Finance™ was born.

Tyson believes everyone deserves an institutional Wall Street experience. Leaning on his global investment experience navigating the world’s largest investors through the Great Recession, V Financial Partners aims to deliver the same heightened experience to everyone. Tyson intentionally partners with New York Life, the largest mutual insurance company in the United States with the highest possible financial ratings1,2. The result is V Financial Partners can offer stability and confidence while supporting clients for decades to come.

For six years, prior to establishing his practice, Tyson was a Global Consultant Relationship Manager with Victory Capital Management, an investment management subsidiary of KeyCorp. He also worked as a sell-side equity and investment banking associate with KeyBanc Capital Markets.

Tyson is so honored to make the 2021 Forbes Top Financial Security Professionals list and the 2022 Forbes Top In-State FSP for Ohio. This list includes financial professionals who protect their client’s assets through life insurance. He entered this industry to help his clients protect what matters most. So, to be recognized as one of only 250 professionals by Forbes validates all the work that Tyson does for his clients.^

In addition, Tyson is an accomplished 2013-2022 Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT®) member3, Top of The Table qualifier in 2018-2022, New York Life’s Northern Ohio Agent of the Year for 2021 and 2012-2019 and a member of New York Life’s 2022 Chairman’s Council and 2021 Chairman’s Cabinet representing the top 50 financial professionals in the country (Council is an annual recognition program based on agent production from July 1 - June 30). He is also a member of The Nautilus Group®, a service of New York Life Insurance Company, offering advanced planning solutions and Finseca’s Forum 400, a national association of the top 400 life insurance professionals in the country**.

While graduating from Ohio University double majoring in Accounting & Finance, Tyson met his wife Lorena the first day of college, who majored in Arts Management, Voice and Italian Studies. They live in Aurora, Ohio outside of Cleveland with their sweet and playful daughter, Giuliana and their happy, blue-eyed son Liam. As a family they enjoy traveling, singing, and the performing arts.
