Gary LarcenaireInterim Chief Executive Officer
- Bachelor of Arts, Psychology
- Master's of Public Administration
He studied at Angelo State University from 1985 to 1994. In his undergraduate, he completed his BA in Psychology with honors. Gary then went on to pursue his Master’s of Public Administration, minoring in government and taking advanced business classes along the way.
In the winter of 1990, Gary began his career as a case manager in Big Spring, Texas. While working in this system, now known as the “West Texas Centers,” Gary finished his degree. He earned his 5 year-stripe in direct care and worked his way to become director of the unit he started with.
Gary was then recruited to serve as CEO of "Life Management Center" which he helped rebrand as "Emergence Health Network" and was the Founding President/CEO of Sun City Behavioral in El Paso. After 10 years with Emergence, Gary accepted a role as President and Chief Executive Officer for Valley Behavioral Health in Salt Lake City, Utah where he helped the team avert bankruptcy and become a leading, multi-state company in the Intermountain West region.
After 19 years of CEO experience, Gary announced his creation of a B2B healthcare concept company Project ItyÂ. ItyA focuses on the principles of "feedback loop compression" and "augmented intelligence" to help healthcare companies improve clinical and business outcomes, and patient and employee engagement. Project ItyÂ collaborates and partners with healthcare and social services companies across the United States.
When Gary isn’t trying to make the world of healthcare a better place, he volunteers at the symphony and for the mountain bike community. He is also a swimmer and mountain bike rider. He has two daughters: Alexis and Elizabeth Larcenaire who share their father's passion for dogs of all breeds.
"Montana is a perfect place for me and my love of camping, hiking and biking, and the board and teams at Intermountain have been inspirational in their devotion to their mission and values. I am very grateful to be a part of this team and to help ensure that these great services continue and grow to serve future generations."

Tyler ZimmerChief Information Officer
Education · Carroll College, BA, Mathematics and Chemistry · Jack Welch Management Institute, MBA Tyler spent the first 18 years of his life in Bellevue, Washington. He then moved to Helena in 2012 to study chemistry and mathematics at Carroll College (Go Saints!). Immediately after graduating from Carroll, he accepted a job as the analyst at the Montana Lottery and was then recruited by Scientific Games to be their account manager, contracting with the California Lottery. His roles in the lottery were heavily tied around the axle of programming, statistics, and sales. Madeline, Tyler’s then-girlfriend and now his wife, was still studying nursing in Helena. So, Tyler made a phone call to the Development Director at Intermountain at the time and started his role with the organization as the database administrator for the Development Department. Since then, he has held the roles of annual campaign manager, development director, and now CIO. This current role heavily leverages his experience with statistics and data from the past, while also utilizing his relationship building skills garnered in his time in Intermountain’s development department. “I will forever try to look at things from a multi-faceted perspective,” Tyler says. “If it’s not easy and compelling for a client to participate in Intermountain’s services, employees to fulfill those services, or for a donor to support the organization, I’ll have a hard time getting behind it.” Madeline likes to say that Tyler has gone from “vice to virtue” in his career and Tyler couldn’t agree more. Intermountain is so much more than his job; he sees it as a ministry and lifestyle. His proudest achievement are the dozens of evenings he has spent cooking for or hanging out with children in Glacier and Sunrise cottages on the Helena Residential Campus. In his free time, Tyler enjoys five hobbies in a very particular order: skiing, fishing, hunting, hiking, and general exercise. In a perfect world, his wife and best friend, Madeline, and their two dogs, or many friends and family are enjoying one of these hobbies with him. His mother was born and raised in Butte, so Montana runs as deep as the Berkeley Pit in his blood. And his father raised him properly to be a fisherman and a Seattle Mariners fan.
