I want to describe a person that has many years with an organization and have used the term "tenured" as in:

He is the longest tenured member.

The term is most often used in conjunction with an educational organization which is not the case for me and the use of "tenured" doesn't sound quite right.
Can any of the wordsmiths here tell me if it is proper usage or suggest an alternate word or phrase?
