Lyft names Tesla’s Jon McNeill as chief operating officer
An awkward moment arose during Tesla’s quarterly earnings call Wednesday: while Elon Musk was explaining his company’s plans to ramp up its production of the Model 3, a Bloomberg reporter tweeted that Tesla’s head of global sales, John McNeill, had just accepted a job as chief operating officer at Lyft.
Minutes later, Musk acknowledged the news on the call. “Actually, one thing we forgot to mention is John McNeill, who is heading up our sales and service group is departing the company. We wish him well in his future career. And going forward, I will be having the sales and service report directly to me.”
He added, “There are no plans to search for a replacement.”
