Giga Berlin construction won’t be impacted by departure of construction manager

Giga Berlin construction

One of Tesla’s executives in charge of managing the construction at Giga Berlin has reportedly left his position with the automaker.

Evan Horetsky, who’s LinkedIn profile still list his position as Tesla’s Director, Engineering, Procurement, Construction Gigafactory Berlin, was first hired in 2015 as a Senior Mechanical Design Engineer.

By November of last year he had worked his way up to his current (or former) position, which he describes as follows on his profile.

“I direct engineering, design, procurement, and construction team leaders who are accelerating productivity and delivery time for Tesla’s factories.”

According to the German broadcaster RBB and reported by Reuters, Horetsky has now left his position, but it is unclear if he still employed in another capacity within Tesla.

The original report from RBB also notes his departure will not have an impact on the Gigafactory’s planning application process.
