W. Tyson Vanlandingham
Chief of Practice Management
Tyson studied Business Administration at the Oak Hill Academy and then earned his Bachelors in International Business from the University of Mississippi in 1999. After graduation, he began his work in the financial services industry as a financial advisor with Dean Witter, where he put in award-winning work until 2004. In April of 2004 he continued his award-winning career at JP Morgan Chase as a private client advisor and vice president, and was named the first Senior Financial Advisor in the state of Louisiana.
Tyson prides himself on building relationships with clients, and watching the plans they craft together develop over time. He feels there is no greater reward than the process of constructing those relationships, and then seeing the positive results over 5, 10, and 20 years of solid management. He feels the greatest reward is in helping clients and their families build a secure future, and he takes pride in the work he and ARC do to make a difference in people’s lives.
Tyson also puts a premium on the value of the ARC team. In his own words, “Beyond our clients, our team is the most valuable asset we have. I learned early in my career that a team environment is vital to a successful, healthy business. We’ve created a company culture that is 100 percent focused on doing what is best for our clients, and we foster an atmosphere that allows our advisors to show clients that they are our top priority – not just in word or principle, but in actions and results.”
Tyson keeps himself busy with both personal and charitable works. He’s a member of the Association of Employee Benefit Planners of New Orleans, he’s the producer of The Slow Money Show on WGSO 990 AM, and he’s been a director of the New Orleans’ Kappa Alpha Order since 2009. He believes deeply in giving back to the community, and donates his time and experience to Grace at the Greenlight, and as a key committee member for the annual fundraiser “Martinis & Mistletoe” which has raised money for Toys for Tots for over a decade.
