Tenet group regulatory director Mike O'Brien has resigned from his position to take up a role at insurance and employee benefits firm Jardine Lloyd Thompson (JLT).
The director said the move was down to personal reasons. He will join JLT as a quality risk and compliance director for the employee benefits division, which he described as "a similar but more diverse role".
O'Brien (pictured) has a 6-month notice period at Tenet, though said he may leave the company sooner, depending on when his replacement is found.
He said: "After seven years, you need a new challenge. I'm excited about moving onto something bigger and different. Tenet needs fresh blood and I can be fresh blood for somebody else."
O'Brien joined Tenet in 2009 as retail distribution review programme director. After being promoted twice at the firm, first to director of Tenet Connect and Tenet Select, then to group brands director, he moved to his current role after Jill Davidson left for Intrinsic late last year.
Chief executive Martin Greenwood said: "Following a change in family circumstances, Mike O'Brien has resigned from his position as group regulatory director so he can take up a new position closer to home.
"Since joining Tenet in 2009 as Retail Distribution Review programme director, Mike has contributed a wealth of experience to his roles within the group and his new position will see him take on similar responsibilities to his current ones."
