he never left a negative impression
Explanation: During his tenancy, he never left a negative impression.
I like Kim's answer a lot more. This is an alternative if you had to follow the original wording. This wording is actually somewhat, how do I say this, excessively careful. They actually did not say that he gave a positive impression...
It's a matter of context.
