Former Florida governor Jeb Bush appears to be shedding his corporate directorships after having announced that he is exploring a run for the presidency in 2016, The Wall Street Journal reported.
Bush will step down from the board of Tenet Healthcare Corp. effective Dec. 31, the hospital announced on Wednesday. The company does not plan to fill the vacancy.
For now, Bush remains a board member at Rayonier Inc., Empower Software Solutions, and CorMatrix, according to the Journal.
Earlier this month, Bush took leave of a lucrative directorship at Barclays, The Financial Times reported.
Bush left office in 2003 with a net worth of $1.3 million. He went on to earn $3.2 million from directorships and additional cash by delivering 100 speeches since 2007 at $50,000 per engagement, according to The New York Times.
In addition, he holds private equity interests in a number of venture capital companies, according to the FT.
