Tesla’s CFO Zach Kirkhorn credited for company’s success

Share post:

A Wall Street Journal investigation found that Zach Kirkhorn, Tesla’s chief financial officer (CFO), is the driving force behind the company’s success rather than Elon Musk.

Kirkhorn joined Tesla as CFO four years ago, when the firm was valued at a paltry $50 billion. Insiders say Kirkhorn has perfected the art of working with Musk without overshadowing him, which has resulted in a winning approach for the electric vehicle company.

Despite maintaining a low profile, with only 63 followers on his private Twitter account, he has been instrumental in achieving industrial efficiency. These advancements have enabled Tesla to post 15 straight profitable quarters and amass a sizable $22 billion war fund.

Kirkhorn’s most significant contribution, according to the report, is his ability to transform Musk’s lofty and apparently unachievable concepts into realistic stages. This expertise has surely contributed to Tesla’s sustained success.

It is important to highlight that Musk is still the CEO of Tesla, and he continues to garner worldwide acclaim for the company’s accomplishments. Kirkhorn, on the other hand, cannot be underestimated as the person who keeps operations moving smoothly and effectively.
