Tesla has decided on the candidacy of the new head of the Board of Directors, which will replace the forced to leave his post of the company’s founder Elon musk. This is stated on the Tesla website. The position is Robyn Denholm, to this part of the Board of Directors as an independent Director.
Currently Denholm busy to another company — she is Finance Director and head of the strategy Department of the Australian mobile operator Telstra. The first six months, while it will combine jobs in the Tesla, it will help Mask.
“I would like to thank Robin for joining our team. I Express my deep respect. Expect to work together,” wrote the founder of Tesla on Twitter.
She Denholm also commented on his appointment: “I believe in this company, believe in its mission and hope to help Ilona and Tesla to achieve sustainable profitability as well as to increase share value in the long term.”
Musk is forced to leave their positions in Tesla (he is also the CEO), in agreement with the Commission on securities and exchange Commission (SEC). In addition, he, like Tesla, will pay $ 20 million. This is the punishment for a summer tweet businessman, in which he promised to redeem the company’s stock at $ 420 per unit, and withdraw it from the exchange. Such actions were qualified as attempt at market manipulation.
