Barron’s: Top shareholder of Tesla says Elon Musk doesn’t need to be the CEO anymore

Reader's Pick

Tesla Inc’s largest shareholder expressed its support for Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk, but acknowledged that it was open to a different role for the electric carmaker’s founder and CEO, Barron’s reported on Tuesday.

“We wouldn’t be against him having a different role,” James Anderson, head of global equities for Baillie Gifford & Co, told Barron’s. “I don’t think he needs to be CEO.”

Anderson said Musk was essential to Tesla, but suggested that the company’s founder could play some other role within the company, such as taking on a “chief ideologue” position, according to the report.

Both Tesla and Baillie Gifford did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
