Tenet continues board refresh with new independent director

Dallas-based Tenet Healthcare has appointed Christopher S. Lynch to its board of directors, effective Aug. 7.

Mr. Lynch, who has decades of experience in finance, audit and risk management, held a variety of positions at KPMG during his 29-year tenure. He most recently served as National Partner in Charge of the Financial Services division at KPMG from 2004 until his retirement in 2007. He's currently an independent director of American International Group, a multinational financial and insurance corporation.

"Chris is incredibly well-regarded for his leadership and sharp capabilities, and I am confident his contributions will benefit the entire Tenet enterprise," Tenet Executive Chairman and CEO Ron Rittenmeyer said in a press release. "Following Chris' appointment in August, we will have refreshed 55 percent of our board in under two years through the addition of six independent directors, and 70 percent of our independent directors will have a tenure of approximately four years or less. We have embraced our commitment to further enrich and diversify board expertise and introduce new perspectives that accelerate positive change."
