WASHINGTON, Feb. 18 (UPI) -- Former CIA Director George Tenet has taken a job at a New York investment bank with a reputation for secrecy.
In keeping with the tradition of what Fortune Magazine once called a "very private family firm," Allen and Co. did not issue a news release last October when Tenet became a managing director there.
News leaked out after his appointment was mentioned in a release from another company announcing his replacement on its board.
The privatized British military research establishment now called QinetiQ announced the appointment of retired Adm. Edmund Giambastiani as an independent non-executive director to the board earlier this month.
The announcement said Giambastiani was replacing Tenet, "who is stepping down from the board of QinetiQ Group plc and joining the board of QinetiQ North America following his appointment as managing director of Allen and Company, LLC in New York City."
