Tesla has lost another top manager today, when Felicia May, Vice President of HR and Diversity & Inclusion at Tesla, left the automaker.
May has been part of Tesla's top HR management team for the better part of the last two years.
She worked for more diversity in Tesla's staff. She said in an interview earlier this year:
"I wish I could take credit for us to bend the trend. My team was very instrumental in implementing our developed strategy to ensure that Tesla integrates diversity into the business at Every decision made was based on the current business and the experience needed to further drive innovation. The presentation of women on the board and management shows our focus and commitment to integrating diversity into the business in general. " Today, CNBC reported that May left Tesla.
A Tesla spokesman commented:
"We will miss Felicia and would like to thank her for her hard work over the past two years and wish her all the best in the future. We have a talented HR team in place will continue to report to our VP of People & Places and will continue to focus on promoting our mission and making Tesla a great place to work. "
VP of People and Places is Kevin Kassekert, who was promoted by Elon Musk last year .
In the middle of an instability earlier this year, Tesla lost a bunch of more leaders.
This year's first half has been difficult for Tesla when it comes to executive departures.
Tesla naysayers will try to hit this as "rats escape a sinking ship", but it could also simply be due to the competitive nature of the Bay Area labor market.
May has an impressive resume and she probably had great demand and managed to secure another concert.
