    Tyler VanZandt is a builder of relationships by day, and thought leader by night. As senior vice president and regional investment consultant with Harbor Funds in Los Angeles, he spends his working hours bolstering new business development and relationship management for financial advisors and banks on the West Coast. Outside of his daily responsibilities, he is a level III CFA exam candidate and is providing thought leadership on designing a future-focused, industry-leading investment distribution model.

In his short time with Harbor Funds, VanZandt has already helped shape a world-class technology and sales ecosystem, which includes a robust data analytics platform and marketing automation system, and integrated it with a newly refactored CRM system.

In his previous life, VanZandt served as vice president and regional sales manager for T. Rowe Price, an independent investment management firm. Among his many accolades, he helped build the company’s first-ever financial advisor sales team, which now numbers over 200 associates. He also received the firm’s Rainmaker Award and was selected to its annual EDGE Leadership class.

Most Helpful WMU Course: “Being selected to participate in one of the first-ever Student Managed Investment Fund classes, taught at the time by Len Harrison, allowed me to connect the dots between classroom work and the real world. I still use that information today.”
