Tesla's Accounting Chief Exits Company as Departures Continue
(Bloomberg) -- Tesla Inc.’s chief accounting officer has left the company, the latest in a string of management departures from the electric-car maker.
Eric Branderiz, who also served as corporate controller, left Tesla for personal reasons on Wednesday, according to a regulatory filing. Tesla shares dropped as much as 1.9 percent after the close of regular trading.
“Tesla appreciates Eric’s service to the company,” the carmaker said in the filing Thursday. A company spokesman declined to comment further.
Tesla lists its dependence on Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk as a risk factor in securities filings and will have shareholders vote next month on an equity award valued at $2.6 billion aimed at keeping him with the company for the long term.
