Although Elon Musk, Tesla’s visionary CEO has claimed to be the “Nothing of Tesla”, the company’s investor page has him as the CEO.
Elon Musk, Tesla’s visionary Chief Executive Officer took to Twitter on Monday, saying he has deleted his titles from the company, without giving further details.
“Deleted my Tesla titles last week to see what would happen. I’m now the Nothing of Tesla. Seems fine so far,” said Musk on Twitter.
Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Sigfinicantly, although Musk is referred to as Tesla’s CEO it its investor relations webpage, his biography page however carries no designation.
Later Musk tweeted, “Legally required officers of a corporation are president, treasurer & secretary. Guess I have to keep 1st one or it will confuse the authorities.”
Incidentally, earlier Musk had agreed to pay a $20 million fine and step aside as Tesla’s chairman for three years so as to settle charges with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in connection with his August 7 tweet about taking Tesla private.
Although Musk’s tweeting and somewhat erratic behavior had raised concerns about his ability to lead the company with several investors and Wall Street analysts urging Tesla to appoint a strong second-in-command, Musk shut up his critics after Tesla reported a positive cash flow, a positive net profit and wider-than-expected margins in its third quarter reports.
Musk has delivered on his promise to turn Tesla profitable with higher production volumes of the new Model 3 begenning to pay off.
