Tenet group director Geoffrey Clarkson to leave


Tenet group director Geoffrey Clarkson is to leave the firm in early to mid-2013.

Clarkson joined Tenet at the time of its management buy out in 2000, moving as a partner of support services firm IFA Professional.

He says he is leaving the firm to explore other opportunities.

Clarkson says: “It has been very satisfying to be able to contribute to the success of Tenet over the last decade. However, I have other ambitions that I wish to pursue and have decided now is the time to explore some of those opportunities in another environment.”

Tenet executive chairman Martin Greenwood says: “Geoffrey’s expertise and professionalism have ensured that Tenet has a sound financial and regulatory base. His enthusiasm and commitment have helped transform the group and facilitated the development of a more professional advisory sector. We shall miss his contributions, but understand the reasons for his decision and wish him well.’

  1. Now all the Tenet Board that took part in the management buyout have sold all their shares to the providers,(via private deals) none want to stay one minute longer. This I hope is not on par with the Captain of the MS Costa Concordia, or a Honister Part Deux.
