“Tyler possesses a keen focus on customer service combined with a drive for operational efficiency as well as innovation,” said Gary O’Neil, senior vice president of human development at Ascentria. “I am looking forward to partnering with Tyler as we build on the incredible success of GNG, leveraging his skills and talent to seek new ways to deepen and further the impact of the organization’s important work.”

Born and raised in Vermont, Tyler spent time working at Uber in Phoenix, Arizona as a community operations manager prior to joining GNG. This position provided invaluable experience in the transportation sector. As the manager of the Ready To Go program at GNG, he implemented new data tracking and analysis protocols that significantly improved operational performance and client experience.

Tyler’s appointment comes at an important time in Good News Garage’s 26-year history. Record-high car prices are leaving many people struggling to afford even the most modest vehicles. Without reliable cars, families have difficulty obtaining steady employment, which affects nearly every other aspect of their lives, including childcare, healthcare, and housing. Good News Garage accepts donated cars, repairs them as needed, and awards them to families in need. In 2023, 100 donated vehicles were awarded through partnerships with state agencies in Vermont and Massachusetts.

Good News Garage is a member of Ascentria Care Alliance, one of the largest human services organizations in New England. With locations throughout the region, Ascentria is creating measurable, positive impact in communities by empowering people to reach beyond life’s challenges and thrive.
