- Australia's Robyn Denholm, currently chief financial officer and head of strategy for Telstra, has resigned from her position to become Tesla Motors chairman in the United States.
- She replaces company founder Elon Musk, 47, who remains on the board and is still chief executive officer but was forced to step down as chairman for three years – and pay a $US20 million ($A27.6m) fine – as part of a deal struck with the US Securities and Exchange Commission in September to resolve a securities fraud case.
