Tesla has three directors on its board, and tesla has nominated two of them to run, including former chairman and current CEO Elon Musk. Tesla announced in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Thursday local time that it would nominate two full-time directors to run for the next director, and that the company’s 2020 annual general meeting will be held on July 7, with the election of directors among the issues.
According to documents filed by Tesla, the two candidates they have nominated for the current term of the board are Robin DeHolm, the chairman, and Elon Musk, the CEO.
Robin DeHolm joined Tesla’s board in August 2014 and was re-elected as a director in 2017, taking over from Musk as chairman in November 2018 for a three-year term at this year’s general meeting.
Musk became a Tesla director in April 2004 and CEO in 2008 before being re-elected to the board several times, but he was fined by the Securities and Exchange Commission and relinquished as chairman after a previous social media attack.
Musk and Robin Deholm won 97 percent and 96.1 percent of the vote, respectively, when they were re-elected, along with Stephen Jurvetson, who signed a three-year term at this year’s general meeting, but announced in April 2019 that he would not run again and therefore did not appear on the list of new nominees.
Tesla’s nominees for the board include Hiromichi Mizuno, the former chief investment officer of japan’s pension fund, who was appointed to the board in April.
