Tesla: Robyn Denholm replaces Elon Musk at the table
Washington – Tesla announced on Wednesday night that Robyn Denholm was appointed chairman of the board to replace Elon Musk, who was forced to resign at the beginning of October.
The appointment of Robyn Denholm, former head of Australia's Telstra telecoms heavyweights, will immediately enter into force, but will continue to work for his current employer for the next six months, Tesla said in a statement.
"To ensure a successful transition during Robyn's stay at Telstra, Elon will provide support and all the help it needs for this new job," said the electric car manufacturer's statement.
Prior to Telstra, Denholm worked with other technology companies, such as Juniper Networks and Sun Microsystems, as well as Toyota.
"Robyn has a solid experience both in technology and in the automotive industry and has contributed to Tesla's success over her four years as a board member." Elon Musk records the release.
The latter was forced to leave as chairman of the board after alleged fraud.
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the US police, filed a lawsuit against him in September, saying he had cheated investors by giving him the desire to remove his company from the stock market.
The imaginary boss of Tesla and the SEC had finally sealed a deal that ended the prosecution. Elon Musk agreed to leave as President of the company he founded, while maintaining his position as Managing Director.
Tesla and his boss also agreed to pay $ 20 million each.
