Tesla appoints Vaibhav Taneja as new chief accounting officer
Tesla appointed Vaibhav Taneja as its new Chief Accounting Officer on Wednesday and also officially announced Zachary Kirkhorn would take over as Chief Financial Officer, replacing Deepak Ahuja.
Both moves were announced in a SEC filing on Thursday.
Vaibhav Taneja had been Tesla’s current Corporate Controller since May 2018 although he joined the company back in 2017 and was to replace Dave Morton who left in September.
Taneja will receive a stock option grant of $6m and a restricted stock unit grant of $2m, which will be granted and will vest over four years.
Zachary Kirkhorn was announced as the new Chief Financial Officer to succeed Deepak Ahuja back in January but Tesla made it official on Wednesday.
Kirkhorn joined Tesla in March 2010 and had served in various roles in the company's finance department.
He was set to be granted a stock option grant of $12m and a restricted stock unit grant of $4m, both of which would vest over four years.
