Massive Tesla information inevitable comes at odd occasions, often at the very finish of the week, and most frequently at night time — a minimum of right here on the East Coast. And so it was that late Friday afternoon, following one other weird week of Elon antics (and two excessive-profile departures), Tesla CEO Elon Musk upset the unfavorable information cycle by saying a shakeup of his firm’s higher ranks, together with the appointment of a president of automotive.

What does a president of automotive do? A hell of a lot, it appears. Apart from overseeing all of the firm’s automotive operations, newly promoted Tesla veteran Jerome Guillen should additionally hold the typically dodgy provide chain operating easily. His different huge position includes eradicating stress from Musk’s life.

Given Musk’s more and more erratic behaviour, many have contemplated the creation of a new, excessive-duty position to take the warmth off the Twitter-loving CEO.

“Jerome will oversee all automotive operations and program administration, in addition to coordinate our in depth automotive provide chain,” Musk stated in a revealed e mail despatched to staff. Guillen, who’s been at Tesla for almost eight years and most just lately held the title of VP of trucks and packages, performed a main position in Operation Huge Tent (our time period) — the creation of a a lot-scrutinized, oft-derided outside Mannequin three meeting line.

Guillen, who reports to Musk, “performed a crucial position in ramping Mannequin three manufacturing, main what virtually all thought was inconceivable: creation of a whole excessive-quantity Basic Meeting line for Mannequin three in a matter of weeks,” Musk wrote.

Guillen joined the automaker in 2010 as program director for the Mannequin S, later heading up Tesla’s international gross sales and service operations earlier than touchdown in the truck program. Prior to becoming a member of Tesla, Guillen labored at Daimler AG and Freightliner.

On the similar day we discovered that Tesla’s “chief individuals officer,” Gaby Toledano, isn’t returning after her current depart of absence, Musk named Kevin Kassekert “vice chairman of individuals and locations.” An infuriating title, for positive. Anyway, Kassekert, previously a VP of infrastructure improvement, now oversees human assets, amenities, development and infrastructure improvement.

Elsewhere, Chris Lister was promoted to VP of Gigafactory Operations, answerable for ramping up Mannequin three manufacturing, whereas additional down the chain of significance Dave Arnold was promoted to senior director of worldwide communications.
