To date the group has failed to secure a FD – the only outstanding vacancy on the board of directors. The full-time appointment completes the boardroom line-up of five.

Freedman has been FD of WJB Chiltern Group Plc, a private company providing tax and other advice principally to private clients. He has experience of mergers and acquisitions gained during his time at legal firm Forsythe Saunders Kerman, where he led the merger negotiations with Lawrence Graham.

Speaking today, Tenon chief executive Ian Buckley, expressed his pleasure at the arrival of Freedman.

‘We are delighted to welcome Jonathan onto the board of Tenon,’ he said.

Tenon is hoping to make announcements regarding the group’s first acquisitions later this summer.

‘We continue to hold acquisition discussions with a number of successful medium-sized firms with the object of growing the annual turnover of the company,’ said Buckley.
