Financial adviser support network Tenet Group has appointed Martin Tyler (pictured) as chief financial officer, subject to Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) approval.

Tyler has more than 15 years’ experience in senior roles within financial services, and joins from The Gelert Group of Companies, where he was CFO from 2019.

He previously held senior finance roles for Howden Insurance Brokers, Agria Forsaking and Bluefin Insurance Group.

At Tenet, Tyler will oversee all group financial activities, reporting directly to chief executive Mark Scanlon.

His appointment precedes the forthcoming departure of Keely Craig, who is relocating abroad after nearly four years’ service, and is working closely with Tyler over a three-month period to ensure a smooth transition.

Scanlon said: “Keely has played an outstanding role in positioning us well for future growth, and I’d like to thank her for all her service and wish her all the very best as she relocates to her husband’s home country of New Zealand with her family.

“Investing in technology and delivering genuine support and financial peace of mind is at the heart of Tenet’s development strategy, and we’re delighted to have secured someone of Martin’s calibre and vast knowledge of scaling financial services businesses to take over from Keely.

“It’s an exciting time for our business and I look forward to working with Martin as we execute our ambitious growth plans.”

Tyler said: “This is an exciting period for Tenet Group.

“The Company is in a strong financial position and has an excellent reputation of providing market-leading support to its network, backing adviser independence and putting clients’ financial wellbeing first.

“I’m therefore thrilled to be joining them on the next stage of their growth journey.”
