Tesla Motors scores big new talent

tesla-roadster-f

Tesla Motors has done well for itself in the last few weeks procuring new talent to try to add value to the company. Hiring Deepak Ahuja, a seasoned auto industry finance executive with 15 years experience at Ford Motor Company, seems like a sound move.

Deepak was previously the controller for Ford’s small cars product development program, a strategic initiative to bring several fuel efficient cars to Ford’s lineup in the United States. Previously, Deepak was CFO for Ford of Southern Africa, a $3 Billion subsidiary where he oversaw the finance, legal and IT functions. Prior to that, Deepak served as CFO for Auto Alliance International, a joint venture between Ford and Mazda with over $4 billion in revenue.

Also joining the rising electric car company is Franz Von Holzhausen the creator of the Mazda Furai and Nagare.

With legal woes still taking its toll on Tesla, let’s hope that this influsion of new talent can move the company along.
