According to a report by the “Manager Magazin”, Tesla Europe chief Sascha Zahnd should have left the group.
It is said that he overtook himself with Tesla boss Elon Musk.
In his position, Zahnd was also responsible for the development of the Gigafactory in Berlin.
According to a media report, Tesla has to look for a new European boss. According to information from “Manager Magazin”, the previous post holder Sascha Zahnd throws in the towel – not one year in office. According to insiders, Zahnd reported that he had fallen out with Tesla boss Elon Musk. The group also did not respond to a business insider request.
The position is explosive at Tesla. Jan Oehmicke, Zahnd’s predecessor as head of Europe, also held the office for just under eleven months. There were various interim solutions before him.
Tesla: Zahnd was also responsible for the development of the Gigafactory in Berlin
Zahnd switched from Swatch Group to Tesla in May 2016 after working for Ikea for ten years, according to Manager Magazin. Even before he held the position of European CEO, he was a close confidante of Elon Musk as Vice President Global Supply.
However, insiders report to the magazine, it was not without controversy among employees. He was under a lot of pressure and was not a team builder.
As head of Europe, Zahnd was responsible, among other things, for Model 3 sales in Europe and for the development of the Gigafactory Berlin-Brandenburg, writes the “Manager Magazin”.
