Tesla is looking for two new independent directors. There are many very capable candidates outside the normal business circles. We want candidates that will stay true to Tesla’s mission, and can even protect Musk from market pressures by keeping an eye on the future.
They also should be able to open doors to Tesla that are outside the current director’s networks. Here are some names that I think should be considered.
Or, with an environmental angle, someone from the following organizations would make great additions, like:
- Sierra Club: Michael Brune, executive director.
- Union of Concerned Scientists: Anne R. Kapuscinski, chair.
- Greenpeace: Has a broad bench of highly qualified people.
These are all people who could contribute to Tesla and open doors. Additionally, they would be more focused on the long-term future than next quarter’s profits. Nobody has to tell them that the environment is important.
I am sure to see a host of very capable names pop up in the comments.
