Tenet chairman Kayes retires

Tenet Group chairman Barry Kayes has announced his retirement after more than 10 years with the firm.

He joined M&E network in February 1996 as a non-executive chairman, eventually completing a management buyout in April 2000 with chief executive Simon Hudson, when the Tenet Group was formed.

Kayes became executive chairman, the post he has held to date and now feels the time is right to move on to new challenges within the industry.

Prior to Tenet, he worked in Friends Provident’s senior sales and marketing team and before that was at Scottish Life for 21 years.

Kayes is a member of the CII Faculty of Life and Pensions Advisory Board, a member of Aifa and Ami.

He says: “It is great to move on from a job well done and to do so at the right time, knowing you are leaving things in great shape. I have decided to retire now, well before time and leaving them gasping for more, rather than do a Tony Blair.”

Tenet Group chief executive Simon Hudson says: “Barry has been a major influence and key contributor to Tenets success over the past ten years, during which time he has also been a fantastic ambassador for the industry. I would like to thank him personally for his support and guidance and we wish him every happiness and good health for a long and well earned retirement.
