Ryan Tylor is a Senior Project Accountant at Core Investments, Inc. He joined the company in June 2020.
What do you actually do for Core?
I do an array of things. My primary function is to support the development team in project accounting. It deals with all the financial analysis and accounting having to do with Core, which creates buildings and develops properties into more valuable assets. Once the project is complete, I close it out and I’m done with it. It transitions over to the asset and management team. I deal with probably 30 or 40 projects.
Ryan, what did you do before Core?
I was a project accountant for Bond Brothers construction company for five years, in Medford.
Where did you go to school?
I got a Bachelor of Science in business administration with a concentration in accounting at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell.
And where did you grow up?
What do you do to have fun or outside work?
I enjoy football, and I play in a fantasy football league. I like the NFL, and I’m a huge Patriots fan. The last couple of seasons I’ve enjoyed watching Tom Brady’s career on the Bucs. I read Yahoo Sports and other sources like that.
I like adventure, things like Tough Mudder runs, or any other obstacle course races. You sign up and do it with a group of people. Usually they set up on the side of a mountain. I did two at Mount Snow, Vermont, and one at Gunstock, New Hampshire. They’re 10 ½-mile courses, and you train for them for months. The first took 4 ½ hours, and the other two took somewhere around five.
Where do you live now?
I live in North Billerica, in a very nice luxury apartment that cost me a lot of money! I take a combination of the commuter train or drive into Boston, depending on traffic and the weather.
What’s a favorite place of yours in the Boston area?
Prior to Covid, The Bancroft in Burlington used to be my favorite place to get a steak. My favorite place is wherever my friends and family are. In the Prudential Center, Earl’s is always a good place to gather with friends after work. I like Eddie V’s — they make a very good cocktail there called the Smoked Old Fashioned. They smoke the glass with cherrywood. They put in an ice cube and pour the whiskey over. The presentation is quite nice.
Is there anything new in your life?
Well, I just retired from Massachusetts National Guard last year after 20 years of service. My grandfather was a decorated veteran from the Second World War, and he inspired me to join in 1988. After September 11 happened, the mission of the National Guard changed from state protection and service to national protection and service, so 2005 I ended up in Afghanistan for a year serving there. I was an information management officer in Bagram. I supported the IT infrastructure for the entire theater.
Ryan, thank you for your service.
