Your Hinton Chamber office team

Tanya Verquin

Office Administrative Assistant

Onboarded at the close of 2023, Tanya brings her skills to the role of Office Assistant Administrator at the Hinton Chamber of Commerce. You can find Tanya in the office most weekdays assisting with various projects, such as the #HintonFirst Bucks program, social media production, and other behind-the-scenes responsibilities of the Chamber.

Tanya has been a local to the Hinton area for the past 20 years, currently living in Brule with her family. When she’s not in the office, Tanya works from home as an emotion code practitioner, an artist, and holistic health consultant.

Tyler Waugh

Executive Director

Tyler was hired as the new executive director of the chamber and started the first week of September 2023.

Tyler moved to Hinton in 2004 and has owned or operated local businesses since 2005, most notably with The Hinton Voice.

He has served on the chamber board of directors on three different occasions, served one term on Town council and spent four years on the Community Futures West Yellowhead board of directors.

Tyler brings more than two decades of experience in communications and stakeholder engagement, as well as an understanding of the political processes and economic factors that impact local business.

He volunteered more than 10 years as chairperson of the Hinton United Way, as well as multiple years as co-organizer of events like the Terry Fox Run and the Mayor’s Golf Tournament.

When he’s not working Tyler enjoys time with his family – wife Morgan and sons Gabe and Walker – and in the summer he can usually be found kayaking and basking in the early morning serenity of local lakes.
