THE TEAM

 
  TYLER HILLYARD   Tyler grew up in Lancaster, OH.  As the son of a home builder, he spent his summers and weekends working on projects with his dad and brother.  He went on to attend Rio Grande University where he earned a degree in Period Furniture Reproduction.  After college, he began working at Woodcraft Columbus, which he would later manage.  During that time, Tyler purchased a Woodmizer Lt15 and began milling his own lumber.  In 2015, Tyler met Treg and as a friendship formed, like-minded dreams soon became a reality with the idea of Urbn Timber.  When Tyler is not at the shop, you'll find him scoping out the next track to fulfill his need for horsepower.

  TYLER SIRAK   Tyler grew up in Dublin, OH.  He attended The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business where he graduated in 2014 with a BS in Logistics Management and a minor in Entrepreneurship & Innovation.   After college, Tyler moved to Toledo and worked in finance for a Fortune 500 Company.  Although great at his job, he was left unfulfilled in the corporate nine-to-five grind, so he returned home to Columbus to help form Urbn Timber.   When Tyler is not at the shop, you'll find him in search of an action-packed poker game or trying out a new home-cooked recipe.

  TREG SHERMAN   Treg grew up in Sidney, OH.  Being the son of a do-it-yourself Dad, Treg learned early on how to create and fix things.  He often went to work with his Grandfather after school and on the weekends, which left an everlasting impression on what it takes to build a business.     He attended The Ohio State University where he graduated in 2013 with a BS in Construction Management.  After college, he turned down a job offer and started two small businesses before finding his calling with Urbn Timber.   When Treg is not at the shop, you'll find him skiing or hiking on his latest adventure, challenging his physical limits.
