We are back again with another MVP Monday! Today, our MVP is a member our Hit Parade Team, Tyler Bielec.
Tyler first started with Dave & Adam’s a few years ago after graduating college and working in our retail store. A few of Tyler’s friends were working there at the time and since he loved sports, thought it would be fun place to work. After about a year working in our retail store, Tyler moved over to our corporate offices and joined our sales department. Tyler eventually found a permanent home in the Hit Parade department two years ago where he is currently the Director of Hit Parade Product Development.
When he first got transferred into HP card Tyler wasn’t sure what to expect, since it was vastly different than his other roles within the company, but he took it and ran with it. Since then his hard work and determination has lead Tyler to have a ton of success and he continues to bring new and exciting products to Hit Parade. He does admit that when he first started at Dave & Adam’s he didn’t think it would turn into a career, but he’s very happy it did, and so are we!
It’s only fitting that as a member of our Hit Parade card department, Tyler is a collector himself. He shared his love for collecting his favorite set, Mike Trout Heritage Chrome Refractors from any year. If you see any in an upcoming Hit Parade product you know who put them there! He also wasn’t shy to let us know about his favorite product, Hit Parade’s Show Your Slabs Collaboration. This is fairly new product, but one of our most unique, featuring nine PSA grade rookie cards per case in a “show your slabs” 9-card display.
Outside of work, Tyler enjoys playing hockey, golf and listening to music. He loves going to concerts and sporting events. One of the more impressive facts about Tyler is that he used to train and compete in long distance races and has completed ten half marathons…wow! He loves running so much he even worked in a running shoe store in college with a bunch of people he trained with.
It’s obvious how passionate Tyler is about his job and it’s shown because of his ability to create awesome products for Hit Parade daily. When asked what inspires him to be the best at his job he said, “Knowing that every product we make is opened by hobbyists and collectors around the world. If we do our best to make the product as good as possible, everyone is happy.” We are thrilled to have someone like Tyler and are excited to see what he brings to Dave & Adam’s in the future.
