David Tyler

Director of Marketing

Be kind, for everyone you meet
is fighting a great battle.

— Philo of Alexandria



By the time David turned 10 he had traveled more miles and lived more places than many of us do in a lifetime. “Yep, Dad was in search of the perfect job,” recalls David. It went something like this: Born in Wenatchee, Washington; moved to Pittsburg (yeah, Pennsylvania); back to Wenatchee; then to Upstate New York; back West to Boise; over to Ontario, Oregon and finally the family roots took hold in Walla Walla, Washington where he started the 5th grade. And surprisingly, given the pace of his parent’s early migrations, graduated from Walla Walla High School.

He attended Walla Walla Community College for a year before transferring to Spokane Falls College where David earned his degree in Marketing and Communication Arts.

Returning home to Walla Walla he put his knowledge to work starting his own ad agency, David Wallace Design and a printing company to support marketing efforts. After 8 years he moved back to Spokane where he worked for Zak! designs, and then to Hagadone Corporation’s Blue541 ad agency. It was at this time while returning from Glacier National Park, the view from the West Shore of Flathead Lake and the Mission Mountains beckoned with such ardor that he was smitten.

Two years later, a friend knowing of his desire to move to this area tipped him to a position with Jore/Rocky Mountain Twist in Ronan. And as they say…”that guy sure is lucky, he actually got a job in the Mission Valley…and a pretty good one too!”

In 2015, after nearly 12 years at Jore/RMT, David accepted a position with Black Mountain Software where he is applying his considerable experience and talent to help Black Mountain prosper.

When David isn’t “cranking” out marketing collateral, he likes to peddle his mountain bike, snow and water ski, golf, garden, cook and tinker in the garage.

Small Town Story

His father, a “small town guy” who grew up in New Plymouth, Idaho, had finally decided that small town life really was for them. For David, it meant growing up in the Walla Walla community where you walk to school and ride your bike where ever you want; a place where neighbors were friends; and at times a part of your family. And today, he still believes that is what small town life is all about, and relishes it.
