Martin Viecha, Head of Investor Relations, leaves Tesla

Martin Viecha, Head of Investor Relations, announced yesterday on X that he is leaving Tesla after seven years.

According to Viecha’s announcement, he spoke with Elon Musk and Vaibhav Taneja, Tesla’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO), a month ago about his decision but wanted to make sure there was a smooth transition.

As Tesla’s Head of Investor Relations, Viecha was instrumental in ensuring the company had a genuine feedback loop from investors. He often voiced views and opinions from the shareholder community, whether they were good, bad, or even unfiltered.

He also spearheaded changes in the investor relationship, including enabling the Say platform for earnings calls, conducting random draws for events such as Investor Day to ensure everyone had a chance to attend, and delivering early Cybertrucks to long-term shareholders with reservations.

Tesla did not announce Viecha’s successor, but the company does have time, as he said he will be staying with the company for the next few months to help with the transition.

Viecha also did not reveal what he would do next but is looking forward to spending some more time with his family as he sorts out his next steps after a very successful stint with Tesla.

Viecha is the third Tesla executive to step down in recent weeks, following the departure of Drew Baglino (SVP, Powertrain and Energy Engineering at Tesla), and Rohan Patel (Vice President, Public Policy and Business Development).
