Justin McAnear, Tesla’s vice president of worldwide finance and operations, is leaving the company, Bloomberg reports.
Tesla shared the following statement from McAnear with Business Insider:
“Several weeks ago, I announced to my team that I would be leaving Tesla because I had the chance to take a CFO role at another company. I’ve truly loved my time at Tesla, and I have great respect for my colleagues and the work they do, but this was simply an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. Any other speculation as to why I’ve left is simply inaccurate. I’ve been working with the team to ensure a smooth transition prior to my last day on October 7th, and a number of members of the team are stepping up to fill my role.”
Tesla is known for itshigh rate of executive turnover. Last week saw three senior employees leave the company: head of human resources Gabrielle Toledano, chief accountant Dave Morton, and head of communications Sarah O’Brien (her departure was announced in August, but her final day at the company was Friday, according to Bloomberg).
