Hi, I'm Ty.
I have a passion for using my 30+ years as a business owner, CEO, COO, CFO, and
entrepreneur to help businesses reach their full potential.
I started my career at Fry’s Food Stores as a systems analyst after graduating from Northern Arizona University with a bachelor’s degree in business administration.
I joined the family business, Lorts Manufacturing shortly thereafter.
I started as the Controller/CFO at Lorts Manufacturing in 1993 and bought the company in 2004. Lorts served high-end furniture stores and interior designers across the country. During my nearly 20 years of ownership, the company grew from 30 people and $3 million in revenue; to nearly 300 people and $30 million in revenue.
In addition to Lorts, I’ve owned and managed interior design showrooms, a real estate holding company, and other small businesses.
In 2022, I closed Lorts and joined Kratzer. I’ve enjoyed my time working with the firm helping and advising other businesses.
I would love to use these experiences to help your business grow and succeed.
