Five Minutes With: Tyson Whitewood, Yamanto Central leasing executive

1. Can you tell us one thing that makes you unique as a leasing executive?
I would say being a business owner and a father. As an owner of two retail businesses leased to major landlords, I understand tenants key needs, this gives me the ability to speak directly into the nuances of being a small business owner including profit and loss, marketing, labor costs, customer analysis and demographics.

As a father, I have an understanding of the impact the retail cycle can have in the home which is often overlooked by leasing executives. This first-hand experience as a business owner and as a parent enables me to communicate to retailers with a greater understanding of the risks and opportunities associated with leasing.
