Ken and Johann Dretchen moved to the Kentlands seven years ago. Prior to that they lived behind Quince Orchard High School but always gravitated to the shopping area and walking trails in the Kentlands vicinity on weekends. Three years ago, Ken was appointed to serve as the chair of the Budget and Finance Committee which gave him an excellent understanding of the financial underpinnings of the community. Last year he was joined the Kentlands Community Foundation Board and currently serves as the Treasurer. In addition, he is a member of the Building 140 Condominium Home Owners Association and serves as the Treasurer.
Ken retired from Georgetown University Medical Center three years ago. During his 44 years of service to the university he served as the Dean for Research, the Chief Operating Officer for the Medical Center and Professor and Chair of the Department of Pharmacology and Physiology.
As a new member of the Board of Trustees his goal will be to foster a greater interaction and dialogue between the board and the greater community.
