Tenet Healthcare Corp., Dallas, said its chief financial officer, Robert Shapard, will leave -- just nine months after he joined -- to serve as a strategic adviser to one of his former employers, energy company TXU Corp., Dallas. Shapard, 50, will stay on into November to see Tenet through its third-quarter financial report, to be released Nov. 1, and the filing of its quarterly Securities and Exchange Commission report. "TXU presented an opportunity I could not pass up to return to the industry where I have spent most of my career," Shapard said in a Tenet news release. Tenet named Timothy Pullen, its executive vice president and chief accounting officer, as interim CFO while the company conducts a nationwide search. Shapard replaced former Tenet CFO Stephen Farber, who announced his resignation in August 2004 after Tenet decided to move its headquarters to Dallas from Santa Barbara, Calif.-- by Vince Galloro
