Alumni Association President

Tyler Hanson, '00 BSc (MechEng)

Tyler Hanson moved from his hometown of Peace River, AB to Edmonton, AB at the age of 18 to attend the University of Alberta in the Faculty of Engineering. During his undergraduate years he co-founded an expansion chapter of a large fraternity, served as campaign manager for a successful Students’ Union election candidate, and with a partner, started (and closed) a student newspaper focused on campus life and events.

In 2020, Tyler joined LoKnow. LoKnow is an alumni-founded advertising technology and audience data company with offices in Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto, Winnipeg, and Vancouver.

Tyler met his wife Anne (’00 BA) while they were both undergraduates at the UofA. They were married in 2004 and moved to her hometown of St. Albert, AB in 2005 where they are currently raising three sons.



He is passionate about mentoring business owners with the skills developed during his career. Tyler joined the Alumni Council to meet new people and lift his vision outside his immediate sphere. Council also feels like a direct way to give back to the university and make sure that the opportunities that were available to him are available to other students.
