Ichien named ED at Terraces of Los Gatos
Tyler Ichien is the new executive director at The Terraces of Los Gatos, a continuing care retirement community in California.
He was previously the executive director at Grand Lake Gardens in Oakland, a sister community. He replaces Alex Candalla, who left in August for the Wesley Homes Des Moines.
Ichien said he remembers The Terraces of Los Gatos being built in 1992, and worked in the dining room and in other positions during high school and college.
He was the health services administrator at The Terraces for two years and then executive director at Grand Lake Gardens.
Ichien graduated from California Polytechnic State University-San Luis Obispo with a bachelor's of science degree in design and communications. In 2013, he completed his MBA at California State University-Monterey Bay and earned his nursing home license.
