Tyson Construction

Zachary Tyson’s first job was cutting grass for his mother’s construction company, Tyson Construction.

“I was always around the business,” says Zachary, who along with his parents oversees the 24-year old family business.

Patricia and Larry Tyson built their success by paying faithful attention to details. Zachary also brings many assets to the Tyson team.
“I think my focus and preparation are my greatest strengths,” he says. “I got that from playing four years of college basketball at Loyola.”
Living in New Orleans he loves food but believes experiencing a good meal is more important. His best meal was in the mountains outside Telluride.

“My wife and I hiked about six miles up to an alpine lake,” he says. “It was the most beautiful turquoise-blue water I’d ever seen. We sat in a snowfield looking down at the lake and up at the mountains, waterfalls and the gorgeous scenery beyond. We ate simple turkey sandwiches and chips, but the view was priceless.”

Tyson is the 2017 Parade of Homes Chairman and serves on the 2017 Home Builders Association Board of Directors, but he is most proud of the company’s collaboration with Operation Finally Home, and Southern Living magazine.

“We coordinated the design and construction of a mortgage-free home for a wounded veteran. The home was designed with the wounded veteran’s physical and physiological needs in mind.”
