Derrick Tyler

Chief Operating Officer

Derrick Tyler has been an integral member of Sleeping Dog Properties, Inc. for over 15 years. Beginning his career with the company as an intern, while attending Wentworth Institute of Technology, Derrick has risen through the ranks – from Intern to Designer to APM to Design Director – and now resides as the Chief Operating Office for the company. He is responsible for the day to day operations of the corporate offices, contract negotiations, and financial controls. As a “client-first” approach, construction management and client relations are a top priority in the practice. He has dedicated his career to a positive and productive working environment based on a foundation of mentorship and hands-on teaching. His focus guides the team in new efficiencies and keeps a firm grip on business protocols. Derrick’s success at Sleeping Dog Properties, Inc. can be equated to his belief that design and construction need to weave together collaboratively to allow for creativity that is grounded by the realities of the project – time and budget most often being the key influences.
