Tenet appoints group finance director

Tenet has appointed a new group finance director following the resignation of former finance director Graeham Sampson in September.

Tenet confirmed Caroline Bradley has joined as group finance director after it notified Companies House of the appointment last week.

Bradley joined Tenet in October to help the network and support services group prepare for RDR implementation. She joined from outsourcing firm TD Wealth where she was finance director and chief risk officer. She has 17 years experience in senior management roles, including as finance director and secretary for YorkSHARE, part of the Yorkshire Building Society.

Tenet executive chairman Martin Greenwood says: “We are pleased to welcome Caroline Bradley to the executive team at such a crucial stage of our transformation into a new regulatory environment.”

Sampson was formerly the finance director at Montpelier Pension Administration Services. The FSA fined Sampson £17,850 in October over failures to ensure the Sipp provider was meeting capital requirements. Sampson voluntarily stepped down as an approved person at Montpelier in May 2011 and the company’s authorisation was cancelled in October 2011. 

Plan Money director and Tenet member Peter Chadborn says: “The main thing for us is the network is being run efficiently and providing a good service. By and large Tenet does not seem to have a high turnover of senior staff, which is encouraging from a member’s point of view.”
