Elon Musk wants replacements to run Twitter and Tesla


In addition to taking care of the restructuring of Twitter, and directing Tesla, the American multi-billionaire must also defend himself in American justice. Indeed, as mentioned in a previous article, a lawsuit is currently underway concerning the compensation of the boss of Tesla, following a legal action brought by one of the shareholders.

In any case, this case (as is often the case) allows for some revelations. For example, recently we learned that Elon Musk already has a person in mind for his succession at the head of Tesla.

According to CNBC, before the judge, Musk said he does not want to be the CEO of any company. Citing the example of one of his companies, SpaceX, he explained that he is mainly responsible for the technical part, within it.

“So the CEO is often seen as a somewhat business-oriented role, but in reality my role is much more of an engineer developing technology and making sure that we develop breakthrough technologies and that we have a incredible team of engineers who can achieve these goals”he also said.

Who will lead Tesla?

Knowing that Elon Musk could therefore cede his CEO positions, entrust the reins of Tesla to someone else, it is logical to wonder who could become the new boss of the car manufacturer.

And precisely, Elon Musk would already have a name in mind. According to a Reuters report, during the trial, Tesla board member James Murdoch revealed that Musk already identified a potential successor a few months ago. The article also reveals that the idea would be to place this person at the head of the company as “administrative CEO”.

He would take care of sales, finance and human resources, while Elon Musk could focus on products.

It should be noted that the identity of the potential successor to Elon Musk, as CEO of Tesla, has not been revealed. But in his article, the Elektrek media mentions names (this is pure speculation).

Relaying rumors, the site explains that in the past, Musk had already offered Herbert Diess the position of CEO of Tesla, before he became the boss of Volkswagen. This year, Diess announced his departure from this position with the German manufacturer.

Others cited by Elektrek include Zach Kirkhorn, Tesla’s current chief financial officer.

And for Twitter?

Regarding Twitter, Musk assured that the current situation is tentative. During the trial, he explained that in the long term, he will reduce his time at Twitter and find someone to run the social network.

In any case, it will not be Jack Dorsey, founder and former CEO of the social network. Responding to a question on Twitter, he indicated that he would not accept the position of CEO of Twitter if it were offered to him.
