More stories about Emerging Leaders 2017

This is one of a series of stories profiling finalists for the Emerging Leaders award, which is presented annually byThe Herald Business Journal. The winner will be announced April 6.

Eclectic would be a way to describe Tyler Chism and his contributions to the community.

Chism writes for a website he co-founded and runs called LiveInEverett.com, which features stories about businesses and people in the community.

He co-founded the Everett Food Truck Festival, which draws more than 10,000 people every summer to downtown.

And he worked on the Take a Closer Look campaign that set up more than a dozen child-sized mannequins around the community to draw attention to youth homelessness.

“I feel that we’ve helped shift the conversation and the way people speak of Everett by shouting the heck out of the phrase, ‘Good Things Happen Here,’” Chism wrote in his nomination form.

Chism has a real estate license and works at Lamoureux Real Estate. He also runs Milltown Creative, which helps other businesses and nonprofits focus their message, build brand identity and web development.

In his spare time, he plays for local band Tellers.

“Tyler is humble about his accomplishments and very much under the radar for someone that is so on the radar,” wrote the person who nominated Chism.

Chism’s poured his heart into the community and sought to do creative, fun and exciting work.

“None of this would be possible if it were not for my business partner and wife, Laura and my business partner and best friend, Garret Hunt,” Chism wrote.
