Welcome back readers to ‘Meet DCG’! We hope you are enjoying getting to know our company and who is working behind the computers.
This month, we present to you our Chief Technical Officer, Tyler Domerese. Tyler is based out of our Chico, California office. He enjoys spending time with his family, traveling and learning about the new features within the products we use. You’ll never guess his secret talent.
Guide us through your career journey: How did you end up here?
- I started working in the consulting world when I was 17. Dustin (CEO of DCG) hired me to work with him out of his parents‘ home. I spent the next year learning to develop and customize Dynamics CRM 4.0. Eventually we joined forces once more, along with Kevan, working remotely as part of a small CRM practice out of Lincoln, Nebraska. I began working with CRM 2011 and eventually CRM Online. After about a year we merged with a firm out of Fargo, North Dakota. Dustin and Kevan eventually left over the next year and formed Dynamic Consultants Group. I joined up with both of them 2 months later. Now here we are.
What influenced your decision to become part of DCG?
- Well, I knew a guy…
What is your favorite Microsoft product that we offer and why?

If you were a Microsoft Office product, what would it be and why?
- I would be Microsoft Excel. I love crunching numbers and having the ability to crunch those numbers in my head without a calculator would be awesome!
What are some of your goals for 2019?
- My goals for 2019 are to continue increasing my knowledge of the Azure stack and object-oriented programming.

What is your most interesting/embarrassing office story?
- Kevan (CFO at DCG) and I were both on-site with a client when I looked in the mirror and noticed that the entire back of my pants were ripped. I spent the rest of the day carefully navigating around the office with my back to the wall. To this day I have no idea how or when it happened so I’m positive that others saw it before I did.
Who would you most like to swap places with for a day?

- My biggest pet peeves that really bother me are spelling and grammar, even though I’m not that great at it myself.
