The Wall Street Journal: New Tesla CFO quickly moves to rebuild depleted finance team

Tesla Inc. finance chief Zach Kirkhorn’s first-day move to replenish his finance team aims to reassure insiders and investors and rebuild the auto maker’s executive ranks after wave of departures.

Kirkhorn on Wednesday formally took the reins as CFO from Deepak Ahuja, a longtime confidant of Chief Executive Elon Musk, who first joined Tesla in 2008.

Tesla TSLA, +0.35% also named Vaibhav Taneja to the chief accounting officer post that has been vacant since September. Dave Morton, who previously held the role, left after less than month on the job, citing the level of public attention and higher-than-expected work pace.
