As previously reported by FOX Business, Chief Accounting Officer Dave Morton resigned on Sept. 4, only about a month after he joined the company.

Commenting in a regulatory filing, Morton said, "Since I joined Tesla on August 6th, the level of public attention placed on the company, as well as the pace within the company, have exceeded my expectations. As a result, this caused me to reconsider my future. I want to be clear that I believe strongly in Tesla, its mission, and its future prospects, and I have no disagreements with Tesla's leadership or its financial reporting."

Also, Tesla’s chief people officer is leaving the company, according to Bloomberg following a leave of absence.

Tesla’s chief financial officer Deepak Ahuja will oversee Tesla’s accounting functions.
